How to prepare usb install:
1- Download this OS X bootable USB for Intel PCs
2- Install RAW image on your usb (Mac OSX)

Find your USB stick
- diskutil list 
Unmount USB
- diskutil unmountDisk /dev/disk2
Copy RAW Image
- sudo dd if= [drag and drop the raw file in terminal] of=/dev/rdisk2 bs=1m
Wait to finish and now you have a usb install ready to copy kext and clover
3- Download Clover EFI,  extract and open the Clover Configurator.app
4- Mount your EFI USB partition without format and then copy EFI folder of Clover EFI into
5- Copy Apps folder into your usb install
So now you have a full USB Install for this Asus

5- To install kexts use EDP system “Install_EDP.app” attached or http://argo.osxlatit...m/edp/download/
Or use "Kext Utility.app" if not work EDP, open, drop files of kexts folder and put your password wait until finish Add and close. Now you can restart system
(If you don't have DSDT patched use No-DSDT-Kexts so if you have use DSDT-Kexts)
If you don't use patched DSDT i think that you put this string on config.plist to enable HD4000
<key>device-properties</key>   <string>7f0000000100000001000000730000000200000002010c00d041030a000000000101060000027fff04002c0000004100410050004c002c00690067002d0070006c006100740066006f0072006d002d006900640000000800000005006201140000006800640061002d0067006600780000000d0000006f6e626f6172642d31</string>
6- Then go into BIOS, in Boot menu select "Add New Boot Option" and complete:
Add boot option: (put a name) for example: Clover boot
Select Filesystem: (Select HDD that have Mac OSX Installed)
Path for boot option: \EFI\CLOVER\CLOVERX64.efi
Select Create and put the new boot option first.
Check too the VRAM of HD4000 is 64MB because probably if it's changed not work 
Save changes and reboot
7- So, now when system boot show Clover bootloader and just select the Mac OSX partition and press enter
If you did it all Mac boot you did well 
Now put use Kext Utility.app to install RealtekRTL8111.kext and others kexts if don't work any injected (EFI/CLOVER/KEXTS/10.11) and HWMonitor.app into Applications folder if you want see temperatures and frequency and enjoy your Hackintosh!!!
