Asus P9X79 WS + Xeon E5-2609 (problem)

I'm having problem installing 10.9 on this system. The specs are:


Motherboard: Asus P9X79 WS, BIOS 4404 (2013/10/18)

CPU: Intel Xeon E5-2609 v2 LGA2011 2.5GHz, Ivy Bridge-EP

Memory: (2) Kingston 4GB DDR3-1600 CL11 ECC DIMM

Video: EVGA GeForce 210 1GB PCI-E

Storage: Kingston Digital SSDNow V300 120GB SDD


With myHack 3.3.1, I made an installer USB and replaced the kernel with the experimental one (supposedly this one) in the dmg package by Rampage Dev. With standard boot parameters, I can reach the Welcome screen of the installer. But after clicking the circle arrow to proceed, it will crash and display the installer log, which is attached. The main error seems to be indicated at line 103 with 'Code Signature Invalid'. I've tried:


1. Using -x and other parameters.

2. Newest kernel by stinga11 (link).

3. Disabled any auto OC functions in BIOS.


I don't know what else to do. Apologies if I'm missing something obvious.

Thanks for your input. What CPU are you running?


I've used 'GraphicsEnabler=No' but it leads to a black screen. Considering that I make it to the Welcome screen, I don't think video is an issue here. Is not the -f parameter the same as 'UseKernelCache=No'?


I will try another bootloader.
