Failed to boot the usb MACOSX El Capitan into my Acer 8951G Laptop: Boots windows all the time

I am trying to install El Capitan to my laptop Acer Ethos 8951G laptop.

I did my USB boot drive accordig to the OS X El Capitan 10.11 UniBeast 6 Clover Installation Guide .

So I made the Boot USB and then I went to the Bios of my Laptop and there is not such "Optimised defaults" so I loaded the default Bios values and saved them. Then I changed the boot order with F12 to boot from the USB stick but nothing happened ... and Windows 7 starts loading up...

Iam lost because no matter which method I follow when i try to boot it do not recognize the USB boot drive and runs immediately to windows.

Help here what I need to do...

Here the specs of my laptop just for you to check if its compatible wth Macos El Capitan or other version:
Mainboard : Acer SM81_HR
Chipset : Intel HM65
Processor : Intel Core i7 2630QM @ 2000 MHz (max : 2900)

The BIOS of my Laptop is from InsydeH2O and there are only few parametres that can be changed..

It just have:

- "Security" (boot passwords, etc)
- "Boot" ( all devices that can be ordered to boot first (HDD0, HDD1, ATAPI CDROM, USB FDD, USB HDD, NETWORK BOOT, USB CDROM)
- "Exit" (save, default values, etc)

Hi haniscape!

 

i am new in these hackintosh things so a help would be gratefull..

 

ok i have installed in my Acer Snow Leopard with iboot and the retail DVD of Snow Leopard (got an image from thei internet and then burn into a DL DVD). All seem fine apart that i alwas need to boot from the iboot cd... And it doesnt recognise the wireless network card.. No wifi..

 

i could boot with USB so i found the iboot cd alternative and it worked!

 

 

Now i can try to boot with the bootloader but where do i find it and ehere are the instalation procedures?? 

 

Thanks!
