dual boot windows 7 snow leopard acer aspire 5738zg-444g50mn

Hello everyone!
I'm new to these forums and I would like to ask you a question.
I have this laptop: Acer Aspire 5738ZG-444G50Mn.
I have already installed Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit on it and using a real Mac I have restored the Mac OS X Snow Leopard 10.6.3 Retail DVD on a USB thumb drive, on which I also installed myHack. I made the partition table of the thumb drive GUID and the file system Mac OS X Extended (Journaled).
When I try to boot off it, I get the grey screen with the Apple logo, but without the spinning thing underneath the Apple. I waited for about 30 minutes, nothing happened, and my computer was automatically turned off. Later I realised that my computer was quite hot (I have never had high temperature issues with Windows).
I tried to install iAtkos 7 as well, but the laptop freezes at the same screen.

Please help me!!

Please boot with -v -x flags on the prompt and follow the messages. Try to remember ( if it reboots itself ) or just make a photo of the screen. We need the last few messages to know what's wrong.
