Acer 5920g problems installing myhack Mountain Lion

i have been trying to install Mountain lion on my spare Acer 5920g laptop to have a play with mac osx.

 

I have been unable to get past the "PCI Configuration End " message screen.

 

i have copied both the AppleACPIPlatform kext v1.3.2 and  IOPCIFamimly kext from a snow leopard install on a Gigabyte G31M ES2L to the extra/extensions folder in the USB MyHack installer and then ran the MyFix option targeting the USB installer. 

Same " PCI configuration end "message.

 

I also tried running the Myhack MyFix option targeting the actual install and then cloned the drive to a laptop drive and then attempted to boot the acer with the new drive but again same message.

 

I managed to install snow leopard 10.6.3.0 on the laptop but was unimpressed with the speed in comparison with windows 7.

Is windows 7 better than Snow Leopard?

Computer specs:

 

Acer 5920g

4 Gb ram

T5750

Nvidia 128mb 8400 GS

160 GB Hard Drive

 

I am a complete newbie on mac osx so any advice most appreciated.

 

Is it possible to install mavericks/yosemite on this laptop ? 

 

 

 

Not much hair Left.
