Thank you Pike R. I will tackle your suggestion forthwith.
Further to my last post I found that when I booted standalone I got the message "kernel patcher reentering" with a "hit any key to continue" message. Hitting a key the kexts continued to load and at about twenty three pages of kexts loading the screen halted on the voodooTSCsync.kext. System did not crash but it was frozen. I found that if I removed the kernel patcher module and deleted the voodooTSCsync.kext the system would boot and load without any need to hit any key but it crashed... Thus your suggestion has given new hope.
Instead of VoodooTSCsync.kext you can use 'TSC_sync_timer=0' (case sensitive/without the quotes) in com.apple.Boot.plist
