Since I can't boot the DVD, I was able to boot by hitting F8, then booting using options -v -f -x. This let me log in with safe mode.

 

Once in safe mode I did the following;

 

edited /System/Library/Extensions/IOPCIfaimly.ktext (removed the change that caused the problem)

 

did sudo rm /System/Library/Extensions.mkext

did sudo kextcache -k /System/Library/Extensions

Repaired my permissions and rebooted.

 

I am still getting kernel panic when booting normal and have the message "IOPCIFamily can not be found". The boot error is linked below.

 

Any thoughts on what to do?

That looks more like a AppleACPIPlatform.kext error. List some specs on your system and how you installed so we can get a better idea of what is going on. In general, when I get this error it means my kernel is not built against the AppleACPIPlatform.kext that is on my system or vice versa.
