If you have problems with the install instructions, you have got on the platform of the beasted tools, you have to ask for this problems on this platform or the developer of the tools by themselves.


Please read the rules, the pinned topics in New Users Lounge and espacially this: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/279450-why-insanelymac-does-not-support-tonymacx86/


You can find here also instructions for Mavericks installation: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/topic/280756-guide-the-all-in-one-guide-to-vanilla-os-x-including-chameleon-dsdt-for-beginners-updated-for-mavericks/


A your interests supporting tool is here available for download: http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/files/file/11-pandoraapp/


To get here a proper support, that you are expecting, it is neccessary to put your hardware in your signature, like many others having done this. With out knowing your concrete hardware supporting you is like playing guess. Nobody, who his able to support you a bit, does like to make a resarch for your hardware before doing this.


But most common for laptops with HD4000 and Nvida with Optimus, is that nvidia is not working. If you can not switch in Bios to integrated gfx, you have to remove all Geforce and Nvida gfx kexts form your installer. In Chameleon options you should choose platform ig 3 for your HD4000. If you make your Installer with Pandora you have the option to remove gfx kexts temporary for the install. Don´t forget to switch in bios to ahci, legacy boot, usb ports to legacy and disable secure boot.


One more thing, that I must suggest, is, using an other harddisc (in external enclosure would be first choise) without any system on it, to do your initial OSX install.


If you are really interested to get supported here, read the topics, that I have suggested before, and use the forum search. Please open a topic in section notebook for your device and ask in this topic to get your problem solved.


Have fun.
