Intel core I7 4790k
Motherboard:
MSI z97i Gaming AC (ITX)

Here are two guides to help you get started:

https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/guide-dual-booting-mountain-lion-and-windows-8.96000/

Also, please do not post the same thread in multiple forums - the Forum Rules are very clear about that.

In your config.plist, make all DSDT fixes false or delete them.

In Terminal app type diskutil list and hit enter - determine the ID of your Usb drive

Download https://www.tonymacx86.com/resources/efi-mounter-v3.280/ and add to your apps folder.
Launch app, enter password, select the ID of your drive, select mount.
Finder opens, navigate to EFI/Clover/config.plist
