OS X Tiger :: Interpreting Panic Log From Kernel Panic Error
My G4 iBook has started giving me kernel panic errors, often immediately after starting up. I haven't installed any new software or RAM recently. I've done a clean system install (completely clean - not an archive and install) then downloaded the combo update for 10.4.11. But the kernel panics are still happening from time to time. I've looked at the panic log, but it means nothing to me Tue Dec 7 21:53:11 2010

Power Mac G5 :: Kernel Panic ?
I'm having kernal panics and not sure why of course Powermac G5 3.0 latest version of Tiger I recently added a bunch of RAM for a total of 5.5. Prior to that, no KPs. Even after installing, no KPs.

I then bought a nikon coolscan 5000 ED. It's connected via USB to 1 of the front USB ports.

The KPs are happening when I use my KVM switch (which is connected to my MacPro and PM G5). if both computers are on and i'm at the G5, when I switch to the MP then back to the G5, it's KPd

I thought at first it was simply the USB port so I disconnected and didn't have KP. Then I something connected to the FW400 port and it KPd. Then I removed everything from the front and it doesn't happen every time, but I am getting KPs.

I haven't tried removing any RAM yet b/c i'd like to research it first. I did run the remem test for 2 cycles and it didn't find any errors.

Here is the lastest KP:

OS X Tiger :: Mac Mini - How To Get Kernel Panic Off
Its the Mac OS X Tiger. Apple sent me the DVD to reinstall it a few weeks ago to get the Kernel Panic off and I'm not sure of how to go through getting this off? I've looked it up on many forums on different sites and it hasn't really helped me. So, how do I go about doing this?

Power Mac G5 :: What Is Kernel Panic - How To Fix It
Is it the CPU? I have a G5 which I bought three years ago. It would crash occasionally and I would get the frozen screen with the white type in several languages. Had to reboot several times.Today, I couldn't get the hard drive to mount. Called Tech. Brought it to Genius Bar. Was told to get new hard drive.

Power Mac :: G4 Kernel Panic After Lightning
A few days ago the lightning strikes in. My old PowerPC Mac, running on OS X Leopard won't work after it, he was turned on ...He says that I have to restart my Mac. I've tried a Safe Boot ( 3 times ) but nothing helps. Could it be that he has an internal damage???When I start him up he makes some strange noises ...

Power Mac G5 :: Getting Repeated Kernel Panic On Startup?
I am running a quad core G5 PPC. I updated to 10.5.1 last week when it was made available and had no problems until yesterday. I tried to empty the trash and immediately had a kernel panic. I restarted and that is when the problem became more apparent then a simple restart! The Kernel Panic continued to repeat itself on the startup screen. I called apple support and went thru all the steps with them including trying to boot from the OS X 10.5 disk, in safe mode, as a target, trying to reset the (I guess I forgot what we were resetting but I was told to hold down Apple-R and Option-P) as well as opening the case and holding down the small button underneath the RAM. Anyway, nothing worked. Even in target disk mode, it made my G4 Powerbook running as the main pop up with a kernel panic! I cant get to the finder to see what the kernel panic parameters are.

Power Mac G5 :: Refuses To Start After Kernel Panic
We inherited 3 G5 PPCs, dual 2.0GHz processors, 1GB memory each, Tiger 10.4.11. They were supposedly tested and guaranteed good. All started the first time - I loaded apps and set each up for a different person in the office. After the first 2 hours of usage, one of them developed a kernel panic, froze, and now refuses to start. It chimes, and the gray apple appears, the wheel begins to spin, then half the screen fills with text and it stops.

The first two lines are:
system failure: CPU=1; code=00000009 ()
system failure: CPU=0; code=00000001 (corrupt stack)

I tried starting from a Tech Tool disk and got nothing but a white screen with vertical black lines. Another attempt brought up some text, the ending lines of which were:
root: xnu-792.24.17~`/RELEASE_PPC
panic: We are hanging here...

Power Mac G5 :: Kernel Panic On Quad Core
This year and a half old computer has recently started having random kernel panics. I've run a hardware check, run disk repair, reset PRAM, repaired permissions, dumped several caches as recommended in various threads and unplugged a couple of peripherals (that are still unplugged). It was OK for a couple of days, then had an attack today. Following is the text in the panic log. Does anything jump out at anyone that would help me know where to look next? I see the word "error" several times, but it doesn't mean anything to me.

Power Mac G5 :: Can't Recover From Kernel Panic
My computer froze on me. I had to hold down the power button to turn-off and restart. Then I kept getting the "Need to restart your computer" message. Tried this a couple times and still could not get rid of the message. I then reset the SMU button and rebooted the machine. This did not work. After reading the discussions, I went and bought a new battery, let it sit overnight and tried again.

Power Mac :: Kernel Panic While Cloning HDD
I put a second hard drive in my Power Mac G4 Quicksilver 2002, and I decided to clone the old HDD to the new. The first time I tried it, it went on, never starting, just saying "calculating estimated time." In my foolishness, I closed the window, and ignored the warning. The second time I tried it, it went on for a good while, so I left it to it. When I came back the kernel panic screen was up. I restarted the computer, and checked the second HDD. It had about half of the Applications copied into it, so it was working initially. I booted with my install DVD, and ran disk utility and both disks were fine, no repairs needed.

This was the kernel panic info:

Power Mac G5 :: DUAL CORE Kernel Panic Mania
Bought a used G5 2.3 Dual Core off eBay. Picked it up and it ran fine. As far as I could tell, everything inside was stock. I swapped out the internal hard drive and reinstalled OS X, fine so far. I started doing some DVD backups and every once in a while, I would get the jet-engine fans with a freeze, usually on verify of the DVD. Didn't happen more than three times over the course of 35 DVDs or so, but at least once I got a kernel panic on startup (grey screen with the restart msg).

I started installing new software (Adobe CS3, FCP Studio, Poser 6) and the only thing I brought over from my last user settings was my Safari bookmarks. Now at this point, I am starting to get more kernel panics on restarts, altho usually they would go away after a restart or two. I installed new ram (4x Samsung 1G sticks) and the kernel panics continued at the same rate for a few weeks, then they started getting more and more frequent. The panics also 'stuck' more, requiring between 5-10 restarts before I got to the finder...................

Power Mac G5 :: Kernel Panic - System Freeze Up Or Unresponsive
A couple of times a week or so my PM G5 DP1.8 will freeze up and a gray screen will overlay stating that somethings wrong and I have to restart my computer, or sometimes, if it's asleep I'll discover the fans roaring away and it'll be unresponsive, in both cases my only recourse is to hold down the pwr button to force quit.I can then immediately start it up and it runs perfectly.

I have a PowerMac G5 Dual 2.3Ghz (PCI-e model) and I upgraded my RAM from 3.5GB to 11.5GB and since then I've had random kernel panics where I get the dark grey drop down and it freezes. Then their is a red light that turns on which is light #7 believe. Can someone help? The RAM is the exact specs as needed and they all show up perfectly fine in the system profiler.

Power Mac G5 :: Kernel Panic Caused By Dell Monitor
I have two Dell CRT monitors attached to my 2004 G5 (dual 2 ghz) by using both ports on the back of my G5. I had trouble opening a game I was playing, getting the error "out of scan range" on one of the monitors when the game tried to reset it to 800x600 resolution. I tried messing with the screen resolution in System Preferences, by changing it to 800x600 then back to 1024x768, but got more problems. It's hard to describe, but it wouldn't display properly, with lots of horizontal lines. So I tried to restart. Then I got this screen of death written in nerd-ese:

Power Mac G5 :: Getting Kernel Panic On Login Screen While Booting
My poor old Dual 2GHz G5 is about dead. Last week I started getting kernal panics all the time. I did everything I could find on every site I could find. Finally the archive and install of the OS seemed to work, but 2 days later, kernal panic. Now when I turn it on, it will usually make it to the login screen, but moments later, it will panic.

I have:
Repaired permissions
removed each stick of memory
zapped PRAM
reset PMU/SMU
Re-seated every plug and connection I could find
Removed it from my UPS
Made sure all airways were clean
Archived and Installed the OS

On a side note, I am wondering if it is the crappy old graphics card causing the issue. A couple times lately the screen went all goofy (moving a window around caused trails to 'paint the window'. Also when I attempted to install from the OSX disk the other day, the aurora background suddenly went grey and then the machine crashed. I tried using the OSX install disk to wipe and start over, but the machine crashed before it even finished testing the install disk.

Power Mac G5 :: Kernel Panic - Unable To Restart Computer?
I restarted my usually reliable iMac yesterday to discover I have a kernel panic (which I had never heard of before). I have tried absolutely everything to restart the computer, including option+command+P+R, shift, control, harward tests (which say everything is normal)but nothing is working. If I upgraded to snowleopard would this fix the problem?

Power Mac G5 :: Kernel Panic Occurs When External Devices Involved
I know this has already been covered at length, but even with all the useful information, I could still use some input for troubleshooting kernel panics on my G5 (late 2005) dual 2.3 with 4.5g ram. What follows is based on all the FAQs and tips I've seen so far. First - The kernel panics only occur when external devices are involved. These include three different Lacie drives, and a MOTU ultralite audio interface. If I do not power these devices (or combinations thereof) I don't get a panic. Second - These panics began right after updating to Leopard earlier this year. Third - I initially suspected a driver incompatibility issue in Leopard with a Sonnet Tech eSATA card (PCIe). Two of the drives have quad connections. But even when only connecting the drives to the FW 400 and 800 ports, I will get a panic. I've tried multiple combinations.

Fourth - And this is something I've recently suspected - RAM? The external drives store all my sampled libraries, so they are only used when I'm loading more sample data into available RAM. While I've been focusing on the drives, I'm wondering if it could actually be the way that RAM is accessed for these specific tasks (nearly all of it with projects that use a lot of instruments). On the other hand, The panics can occur even after I've quit Logic, and all relevant hardware is still powere). I've also noticed that an open, though idle Logic project, will often result in a panic. I read recently where Leopard is very particular with memory - I have two sticks that the manufacturer assured me were compatible, even though they've always showed up at a slower clock speed (3200). BTW, I have never been able to do a successful hardware test with the original G5 CD, as it crashes my computer every time. A defective logic board was also replaced on the G5 in early 2006.

Power Mac G5 :: Kernel Panic When Connecting Any Firewire Hard Drive To G4 Tower
I'm running OSX 10.4.11 on a G4 tower, 1.4Ghz upgrade processor, 2G RAM.

Anytime I connect ANY firewire hard drive I get a kernel panic. This includes iPods, and several brands/types of firewire drives. I even installed a sonnett firewire card in case it was the onboard controller; still get the same result.

A firewire camera (iSight) works fine on any of the same ports.

I've tried disconnecting everything, no luck.

The same drives work just fine in the USB connection, and with a USB 2.0 card.

OS X :: Kernel Panic When Trying To Install 10.5 Leopard
Bought a new Macbook Pro 2.8 a few days ago (newest one with longer battery), it shipped with Snow Leopard. However, I believe the Hardware is still the same as before Snow Leopard was released, so it should work with Leopard 10.5.

If I try to use a Leopard disc it just doesn't boot, or it comes up with a kernel panic. I even installed Leopard on my 2.5" in my Mac Pro first, then tried booting it on the macbook pro. Same thing, kernel panic. Have they added some kind of lock to the hardware that stops Leopard from being loaded? I thought they would only do that when new hardware is released.

OS X Tiger :: Kernel Panic During Waking From Sleep
I saw that there was a recent thread on kernel panics, and I have studied it and got about as much info as I could glean from the great links in the thread. Kernel panics are new to me, but I am not new to mac. Here's what's happening with my Mac Book Pro.

May 5 - in a meeting - online wirelessly using Firefox latest version, Thunderbird is open as well. - closed MBP - opened a little later and got the message that the macperson sitting next to me recognized as a KP. I restarted - loud beep and restarted ok. I put it out of my mind. Been working fine
May 19 - this morning - same scenario as above except this time I was plugged in for power - waking up from closed and sleep I got another Kernal Panic. I checked panic.log and saw it had happened on April 12 as well, but never before. While I cannot remember what happened on April 12, I do recall that last month I did have a crash when waking from sleep, but did not see an error message.

-I have no usb or firewire devises hooked up, but I am connected to my Epson printer wirelessly through printer sharing and my isight G5.
-I have checked all the crash logs and they are difficult to decipher, but I did not see anything that happened the same on all those days besides the crashes.
-I checked my installer logs and I have not installed anything accept Apple Updates anytime recently. -I verified my disk - all ok.
-I repaired permissions.
-I downloaded and ran Memtest - it says all is well with my memory (1gb, allthough it said it was testing 443mb). It is not new, but what came with the MBP.

Is there anyone who has heard of Kernel Panics happening during waking from sleep in particular? Can it be that just repairing permissions will have fixed it?

OS X Tiger :: Persistent Kernel Panic On Startup
Can I get some advice on how to diagnose a persistent kernel panic on startup?
About this Mac
Version 10.4.11
Processor: 1.67GHz PowerPC G4
Memory: 1.5GB DDR SDRAM

The PowerBookG4 starts up when selecting the local hard disk via Startup Manager (press and hold Option key); PowerBookG4 starts up when inserting the install disk 1 and selecting the local hard disk via Startup Manager (press and hold C key); PowerBookG4 starts into safe mode (press and hold Option+Shift keys). I have verified and repaired disk permissions and the disk itself. This behavior occurs consistently with or without external devices connected. I can work in my applications ok and everything appears to function as expected once I get the PowerBookG4 booted, but I am concerned about how long it may continue to function - got a lot to do!

OS X :: Kernel Panic Power Icon Pops Up When Booting From CD
Today I was preparing to get rid of my bootcamp'd windows7, change the partition size, and install XP. Well, I decided instead that I would just get a fresh OS X install, and install XP through the new bootcamp. So, I popped in my XP disc and went through the partition manager that comes with it (I don't know how to do it through mac) deleted all my partitions and installed windows so I could operate the cd-drive, and put in my OSX install disc.

(Perhaps I should mention I formatted it all to NTFS, thinking I could just reformat the whole thing with the OS X install like you can with windows). So, now I have a full NTFS partition, XP works fine. I can put in my OS X cd, restart and attempt to boot from a cd either from holding down option, or c at boot. When I try to do this, it pops up the kernel panic power icon, and gives me the "restart your computer" message. In recap my computer kernel panics on boot from cd.

Here's the question: Is this a true kernel panic, or is it due to the fact I don't have a partition available for mac to boot from? I didn't change any hardware, it was working perfectly fine prior to the -attempted- reinstall, and my XP install is working fine (minus the drivers), and after some research kernel panics tend to happen after hardware failures, in fact I had one happen a few months ago when my video card bit the dust.

OS X Tiger :: Continuous Kernel Panic After Restart (after A Software Update)?
I am using Macs since last 9 years and have resolved various startup problems. Now, for the current problem, here is the update:

1. I had installed the latest security update and latest safari update before this startup problem (Kernel Panic) happened. After the software update forced restart the computer did not shut down correctly, and since then has not started up.

2. For starting up, I tried the following. (Shift - Safe Mode, Resetting SMU, Resetting PRAM, Boot with X - Showed the Hard Disk for booting but got stuck later) - None of these worked. I tried Single User login / Verbose Mode and it worked to show the text on black screen. The text read as follows after the text Firewire lucent now active...

Software :: Kernel Panic Repeatedly After System Froze During SL Install
Every time I boot up, the computer goes immediately to this screen: In short, I was running leopard, and installed 10.6. Caused problems with Word and system fonts, so I called Applecare, who were of no help and basically told me to contact Microsoft to get the problem fixed. I decided just to do an Archive and Install of 10.5, so that I'd at least have my working system back and in order. Did that, and was going through and drag/dropping folders from the "Previous Systems" folder into my new one on the recently installed 10.5 setup, and the computer froze while some of the library files were transferring. I powered down, and it KP's after time I attempt to turn it back on.

OS X Tiger :: Kernel Panic - Reinstall - Powerbook Won't Boot
my younger brother though it would be funny if he moved around my "library" folder. I believe he tried to delete it.Long story short my Powerbook wont boot. It goes to the kernel panic screen and I have no idea how to reinstall my os. Can any one direct me on how i would install tiger again. Can I just download OS X or is that something ill need to purchase? ( I bought my powerbook used with no os disc).

OS X Tiger :: Kernel Panic - Computer Won't Stop Freezing
I have an iMac G5 isight that is constantly having kernel panics. The errors seened to occur when I bought a a new Airport Extreme base station but it may have happened before that. The AE is brand new where the iMac is a G5. I have started the computer up with out Airport on and still had the kernel panic so I do not believe it is the AE. I have wiped the drive, zeroed out the HD, removed the extra RAM (only soldered RAM installed right now), reset the PRAM, reset the SMC, removed all peripherals and am currently looping Apple hardware test right now (currently showing no issues after 3 hours). It seems to happen when I am in the middle of installing things but also at other random times. Please see the panic log below. I have a long log but this is the most recent one. The computer only has Apple products on it that were installed from the system disk. No third party on there.

OS X Tiger :: Kernel Panic - Input / Output Error On Disk Utility
So I was using my iMac the other night, and this screen: [URL] popped up. It seemed to conincide with the (unsafe) pulling out of a USB. From what I can gather this is a kernel panic. I can also gather that these are bad. I've run Disk Utility and it says that the HD is okay. (I want to backup, but the USB HD I'm trying to copy to supposedly isn't in the right format (when it is; FAT32), and when I try to format it using Disk Utility it comes up with a "input/output error". Anyone know what this is about?)

Snow Leopard :: Kernel Panic After New Hard Drive Install To MacBook
I just installed a WD Scorpio Blue from Best Buy into an original core duo Macbook. I restored from time machine using the Snow Leopard boot cd to launch the backup. It saw the new drive, I partitioned it into 1 partition then ran the restore. It restores fine but when it tried to reboot I got a kernel panic time and time again.

Any thoughts? I pushed the drive in as far as it would go, but I don't know if maybe its loose somehow? or is there something up with the Scorpio Blue...after purchasing I read that there might some issue with confliciting free fall senors but the computer was sitting on a solid desk when the panic happened. I got the apple on bootup and then bam kernel panic.

Software :: Kernel Panic At Bootup / Can't Boot From Install Disk
I've got a Powermac G5 desktop. I recently purchased a used keyboard for it off of Ebay. The computer was working fine with just a mouse. Shortly after the keyboard was plugged in, I got a kernel panic, and had to restart. I restarted, and immediately got a message saying "you need to restart your computer", and followed by another kernel panic.

Now, I get a kernel panic and "restart your computer" message, even if the keyboard is unplugged.

I was planning to do a clean install of OS X anyway, and figured that since the computer is completely useless at this point, now would be a pretty good time to go ahead and do it. So I tried to boot from the install CD by inserting the CD and holding down the 'C' key. No result -- it doesn't show me the "boot menu", and instead proceeds as usual, to it's "Restart your computer" message and subsequent kernel panic.

So I then tried rebooting and holding down the "Option" key, and managed to get to the boot menu. I selected "Mac OS X Install Disc 1" and clicked the "--->" button ... kernel panic again.

I'm at a complete loss for what to do next. Any help with this would be much appreciated. All I want to do is reinstall OS X.

How can there be a kernel panic from the boot CD? Apple didn't make it where it tries to use the kernel from disk during install did they?

I'm coming from a Linux background, and am not at all familiar with OS X, so forgive me if I've left information out that I should have included. Please let me know if this is the case, and I'll do what I can to provide it for you.
