Because Unix/Linux terminal commands work for Windows 7.
Seriously, it's not a fear of command-line, but the fact that people don't read the OP, and the fact the forums are practically ABONDONED makes me pissed.
Where in your OP did you even mention Windows 7?
The commands were intended to be run in OSX, as that is the OS you are trying to get to work. OSX is a real version of Unix with a real command line, which is what this forum is all about.
I am not using Linux, I am using Windows 7, and as every person who has ever fiddled with a PC should know, is that Windows does NOT have a Terminal. It has a Command Prompt, but it doesn't function half the same way the Linux Terminal does, and cannot run the same commands.
No one mentioned you using Linux, and you never mentioned wanting to dual boot Windows 7.
If you want to be successful at hackintoshing you must understand
1.That this community is not like the Ubuntu forums. No one really cares if you can run OSX on your machine, we don't profit in any way from spreading OSX (like people get a moral boost spreading Ubuntu). We all do it because we
want to use OSX on non-approved machines, and by helping each other in that goal we help ourselves. But the community as a whole has little patience for hand holding.
2. That we hackintoshers are all scavengers with sub-communities that focus on particular hardware. Your machine doesn't have a community behind it. Given how little you know about hackintoshing, then it might be hard to get it completely working. That is why most people who hackintosh research before buying stuff to get products that have an active Hackintosh community.
3. Hackintosh is freaking hard. Linux is NOTHING compared to Hackintoshing- I know I was part of the Ubuntu forum staff for a while.
OSX and Apple are actively
fighting our efforts to use OSX on non-approved machines. The hoops I have jumped through to get my hackintoshes to work (including: hours of command-line work, kext editing, at least 60 OSX installs to fix issues, tons of DSDT hacking) have been the reason to do it!
You do not
get into hackintoshing because you want a cheap Mac- Apple makes hackintoshing hard enough that generally you will waste far more effort hackintoshing that it costs to just work extra to buy a Mac.
You hackintosh to get things Apple won't offer (such as my ION Netbook or my mid-range Hackintosh tower desktop), and for the thrill of the ride. You do it because you can, because OSX rocks, and because it is a way to actively fight the walled garden of iLand.
With all that said, looking at your system it seems like it has common parts to many popular Acer machines. The chipset is probably supported: search for either the Acer A150 (if it has a 9 inch screen) or D150 (if it has a ten inch screen) on the forum. Any guides/kexts/etc you find will most likely work. I personally have a D150 and it makes a decent hackintosh (except for a lack of sleep) and dual boots easy.
But it takes time to get there. And step one is realizing that Windows 7 won't help you at all- you fix OSX within OSX.
