    I'm trying to install Snow Leopard on my Mac Pro (2007). I have bought a new Seagate 1Tb HDD, and now I'm having the next Kernel Panic:

    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x558993): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/snu-1456.1.25/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1389

    BSD process name corresponding to current thread: Unknown

    Mac OS version:
    Not yet set

    Kernel version:
    Darwin Kernel Version 10.0.0: Fri Jul 31 22:47:34 PDT 2009; root:xnu-1456.1.25~1/RELEASE_I386

    System uptime in nanoseconds: 182058372

    And I have the message: "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button..."

    I don't have the original CDs.
    It only has installed the original RAM, and the new HDD.

    What can I do?

    Thanks for all.

    This is most likely a machine specific install DVD that doesn't fit your machine. Get a "Retail" version.

    So, what I shoud do?

    Buy it directly form Apple Store? Or call them, give the serial number and the send me the original CDs?

    That would be my first approach. Calling Apple is always a good plan (if you are on the legal side). If they can't help you, they'll at least point you in the right direction.

    Otherwise hunt for a SW "Retail" on eBay.
