Please explain with screenshots how to do this and how and in which order and where I have to place and activate the quarry and the landmarks. I have read that this is possible, but I fail at replicating this.

Does your modpack contain Quarry+? Because only Quarry+ can go bigger then 64x64 AFAIK – Arperum Jul 2 '14 at 9:35

The Buildcraft quarry doesn't support areas larger than 64x64. Quarry+ adds a block called Quarry+ which can support up to 256x256.

If you have Extra-utilities installed then use the Ender Quarry, it can support an unlimited* (read stupidly large) area.

It is not possible to build a quarry larger than 64x64, which is stated on the wiki:

By default, it (the Quarry) will mine out a 9x9 area with a frame of 11x11. However, this can be extended to a max of 62x62 mining area with a frame of 64x64.

I would recommend placing a number of quarries adjacent to each other and connecting them together with pipes.

You can't. What you can do is put down multiple quarries, however.
