Is there a work around where I can upgrade my Mac
2x2.66 Dual Core Intel Xeon

The installer does a system check and does not get past the first screen without displaying
"OS X Mavericks can not b installed on this computer.

Intel Core Solo and Core Duo processors are 32-bit and consequently Macs with these processors only are capable of booting in 32-bit mode. Intel Core 2 Duo and Xeon processors are 64-bit. You need a 64 bit processor to run Mavericks.

The oldest Mac Pro to run Mavericks is the 3,1.

In order to run Mavericks, Macs have to have both a 64-bit Intel processor and a 64-bit implementation of the EFI firmware that controls the Mac's motherboard.
