Kernel Panic at boot screen
Hey there everyone, I've got a KP problem. I've seen a lot of posts about this already but it was recommended that I do a new post, so here goes.
When I boot the machine, I get the chime and the apple logo on screen with the spinning wheel, and then it KP's me. Screen goes grey and tells me I need to restart my computer in 5 different languages.
I have checked the RAM in the machine manually, and it all seems fine
I've done the Apple Hardware test and it says everything is fine (extended)
Can't boot to CD - Just sends me to Kernel Panic screen.
Can get to root via *cmd-s* and have done a fcsk, and it said everything was fine.
I have done a verbose boot, and it hangs after:
NTFS driver 2.1 [Flags: R/0].
NTFS volume name , version 3.1.
This seems pretty strange to me, as I thought NTFS was just a windows file system but I could be wrong, need more knowledgable people to tell me what's up!
I have a bootcamp setup, and I can get to my XP OS just fine, (Holding option at startup and selecting the drive) although the graphics is very shoddy, and just looks odd (Kinda like windows safe mode)
This makes me think it's a Graphics Card problem, but it works. Not well, but it works. Would the graphics card cause some sort of fault so that I can't load up the OSX?
Not sure how the problem came about. Was using the computer fine earlier in the afternoon, and when I came back later that night it had frozen with some graphics glitches. When I restarted, it kp'd me, so i shut it down and let it cool off. When i turned it on, it loaded the os Fine. I went to disk manager and verified/fixed the permissions on the drive, and was just logging into my Time Machine to see if I could load up a previous backup, but died on me. Screen flickered on and off, had some mouse movement, but then it halted altogether.
Since then, doesn't matter how long it's off for it KP's me
To me, if feels like a hardware fault and more specifically the graphics card. I just don't understand how it can work, and not work at the same time.
Starting in Verbose mode, I've noted a few lines that I think might be of some importance.
"localhot DirectoryService  WARNING - dsTouch: file was asked to be opened </var/run/.DSRunningSP1>: (File exists)"
"mds: (/.Spotlight-v100/Store-V1/Stores/747D63f******)(Error) IndexCI in ContentIndexOpenBulk: No index*
Single User mode
When starting in single user mode and after typing "exit" while in root, I get these errors
"mds: (/)(Error) IndexSDB in si_consistencyCheck: Starting internal consistency check for //
"' : Finished internal consistency check for //. Check: 0 Missing:0 Inconsistent:0 Leaked:0
It hangs there.
Es esta una buena pregunta?
