Kernel Panic, System Definitions, 10.9 EVGA SR2 XEON

Hello, Ok so everybody check out this Kernel panic I am getting>>> I have made a custom boot USB installer for 10.9 which ive already ironed out a few issues on, I am converting my Dual Xeon Evga SR2 to mac finally and am having a system definition problem (panic). any ideas? 


appleacpiplatformexpert start failed ::

"Apple platform expert startup failed, unable to find driver for this platform, system MacPro 5,1 ..."

Ive tried changing the smbios.plist file ? and to remove it entirely, then... it just crashes under a mac mini definition 1,1 similarly... Maybe a specific edit? see the picture for details:

In the bios its set to one processor etc , no hyper-threading etc etc etc etc , any ideas ?beachball.gif  (But it has the EXACT same error if all processors and HT are turned on anyway)

I had to make a custom thumbdrive to get it to work, then added some kexts and bootflags on there, maybe i introduced something i shouldnt have? 

its going to be a rad server when this works! Any thoughts much appreciated ! Chimera 2.2.1 + MAC os 10.9 install DMG 


added flags for graphics, & other stuff which seemed to work, but now im stuck on this one.
