Kernel Panic, System Definitions, 10.9 EVGA SR2 XEON

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

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.

-Morg. SEE PIC. (sorry a little blurry) BEST>

    • i think the "red light" you are referring to is that you have a optical SPDIF output (3.5 mm) combo jack. it most likely will be "red" when audio is active. 
    • Domanda , ma il tuo configplist lo ha settato cosi Gengik????
      Noto molte cose atipiche , tipo aperto con Clover configurator nella sezione ACPI il nome DSDT.aml NON è selezionato , quindi in teoria NON dovrebbe caricare il DSDT che hai in Clover ACPI Patch , se usi SSDT x la CPU NON dovrebbero servirti quelle personalizzazioni sempre in configplist sezione CPU ...
      Secondo me dovresti partire da un configplist pulito , xche sempre secondo me c'è rimasto delle schifezze di qualche tool x installare facile    EDIT
      Scaricando il configplist di jolly NOTO ha impostato +o- come intendevo fare io , sistemando quello  sopra elencato e bammmmm NON avvia , mi forniresti x favore Hack info che trovi nella mia firma ???
    •   Can you share the Clover folder that lets you boot?
    • yes it is. i can boot using a backup from a backup of my clover. i am just trying to fix the VGA /HDMI so i tried using the clover i got from Allan
    •     I mean't to fix that. The new attached EFI only contains new USB patch that will unlikely fix anything unless your hackintosh is installed on a USB drive. If it is installed on your hard drive, as I said, try playing with the patches I attached in the screenshot (i.e. disabling some of them).   Your SATA Mode is AHCI in the BIOS right?
