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


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:
