    Hi to all,
    I'm Razorbacktrack and I'm from Italy.

    Yesterday I bought an asus laptop with these characteristics :

    Intel® Core™ i7-4700HQ
    Display 15,6'' / Full HD
    HDD 750GB / 8192MB DDR3
    GeForce GT 750M 4GB DDR3
    Can I install mavericks on it? if yes,what tutorial I must follow?
    I must install mavericks before w8 to have the dual boot option?
    Thanks :)

    And hopefully you understand the part about "switched" graphics not being supported (assuming yours is switched/Optimus).

    Since yours is Haswell, you will likely run into the instant reboot problem due to locked MSRs and CPU power management being built into the Mavs kernel. So definitely follow the link at the bottom of the post, as I've built my own kernel to avoid it (just built from Apple's sources).

    Did you set your ig-platform-id correctly to enable HD4600?

    Also:
    Please provide complete details in your profile.

    System: manufacturer/model
    CPU: detailed CPU model + motherboard chipset
    Graphics: all graphics devices + screen resolution
