Hi Adil,
	There are various obstacles to minimizing your structure.  The specific problem above is that Chimera doesn’t know to generate the missing inter-residue forcefield parameters between the non-standard TPO residues and their neighboring standard residues.  The solution is to change the TPO backbone atom types from their antechamber-assigned GAFF atoms types to the corresponding regular AMBER atom types (c->C; n->N; c3->CX).
	First you should work from the attached modified file that Elaine Meng created where truncated residues in your structure are changed to alanine.  Then execute the following commands to add hydrogens, remove one spurious hydrogen, add charges and atom types, change the atom types I mentioned, and then minimize:

delete @h2p
setattr a gaffType CX :TPO at CA
setattr a gaffType C :TPO at C
setattr a gaffType N :TPO at N
