But I can't get it to work, do any of you guys have experience in this? Im using hexxeh version of chromium. Any help is highly appreciated!

I've tried already mate! There is no way to install the proper Chrome OS. You can only try your luck with Chromium and there currently are two version of it: Vanilla and Lime. Try both of them (Lime has more hardware support) and see if you're lucky enough to get your laptop running one of them. However there is a high chance Chromium won't run on your Acer. Another way to go is this: http://www.howtogeek.com/179935/stupid-geek-tricks-how-to-turn-a-windows-8-pc-into-a-chromebook/ =)
Hope that helped!
