Mountain Lion on Acer Aspire 5740G with Windows 8 PRO 64bit

Hi, if I joined here as well as to test the tools of the site I did it also because I have not slept in three days to be able to install Mac OS X Lion Mountain on my computer, I tried them all really but with my limitations devices ... in fact I do not have a USB stick with 8 GB, but I have 2 usb sticks 4 Gb (I read that you could do the same), I just broken a DVD rewritable 4.7 GB dint of format so it cannot be used .. I do not have even the dual layer to try. I have read and I also saw a video (below) explaining how you can install on Mountain Lion partition directly from Windows with 'image of the VMware virtual machine, and I tried, but once you're in the virtual machine if I go to Disk Utility and press "Partition" near "Erase" to set the partition in "Guid Partion Table" Disk Utility freezes and will not let me format the chosen partition in Mac OS Extended (Journaled) to be able to install Lion Mountain ... after various guides I've read that if you switch from MBR to GUID you delete everything, but I only have a hard disk of 640 Gb with many partitions, so I think this is the problem .. I found a patch to use a hard disk MBR but it is not clear how much ... my features: intel i7 620m dual core, ATI HD 5650, 4 GB of RAM, hard disk of 640 GB. As characteristics should not have problems to make an hackintosh ... How could I do?
