It is either BIOS option, old BIOS version, or incorrectly configured/created USB. Try different things. Different USB stick, different USB ports, update BIOS version if you don't have the latest, reset BIOS to defaults and revisit important options, etc.

Prior to installation, you're booting from USB using Esc+F9 to reach BIOS boot menu.
I have the latest BIOS version and boot using F9 and select file as explained in first post.
I have given the Linux comparison because I already test to boot Clover, copying the contents from first post, directly to the EFI partition on my HDD, that where it stands the files that boots Linux (replaced the BOOTX64.EFI and copied the Clover folder).

Check the contents of your Clover configuration to be sure it is correct/complete. For example, theme specified in config.plist actually exists. Correct drivers in drivers64UEFI, etc. Otherwise comes down to a BIOS setting, Clover version problem, or something else...

Hi all,
I have successfully tripple boot Maverick - Win 8.1 - Ubuntu 14.4 installed, thanks for this guide a lot.

I need to ask you one question, what about the Radeon 7650M, still the option switcheable graphics needs to be switched off?

You don't need to switch off Switchable Graphics in BIOS for this guide, though it won't work with OS X.

Enable it again and repatch your dsdt.

Please am I right if i am thinking that with switched secondary graphic card on isa lot decreased battery life in Maveric?
Is the secondary card draining battery?

Thank you, I hope I am not bothering with my questions...

Repatch DSDT by PBI CE then the AMD card will be disabled in OS X.
