try with my hack generic extra with mavericks. and try booting with the chameleon flags -v IntelCapriFB=3 if that does not get the graphics going try a different number starting from 0-11 hopefully that can get you started.

for sound try voodoohda 2.8.4 or 2.8.5,  for ethernet if you used generic myhack you can run lspci -nn command in terminal for a list of your devices then find a suitable kext for it.. if wifi is intel then it needs to be replaced. for brightness you might need pnlf device added to dsdt. but chameleon also has a flag for backlight you can try. use chameleon wizard app if you need to make any customization to your smbios or boot plist.

Thanks for speedy reply...as i donthave ethernet so i have to boot to windows ..i will try voodohda(mine is intel HD audio-some  say patching dsdt would solve it) + i will also search for ethernet kext but how do i patch my dsdt for sleep/wake/brightness/other dsdt feature and also i have to always boot my mavericks with chameleon usb (i have a dual boot mavericks and windows 8.1)it always boots to windows 8.1 no selecting option + while booting i show boot0:done and boots windows 8.1

Try this DSDT. It should fix brightness, brightness keys, and maybe sleep. All I did was apply the rename GFX0 to IGPU and apply the brightness fix to your stock DSDT If this doesn't fix sleep, I'll inject your IMEI info into GFX0/IGPU and that should fix it.

 

Place it in /Extra and reboot. If, by some chance, it causes a kernel panic or causes your system to stop booting to Mavericks, at the Chameleon prompt, the following flag will drop that DSDT: DSDT=0. This will at least let you boot without a DSDT and get back into Mavericks.
