    i've owned the mac pro for about 4 days now. and so far i've had 5 kernal panics already.

    the first thought is prob, "bad RAM". well, it's not. i do have 5GB RAM currently, 1GB from Apple and 4GB from 18004memory.com. however, i have ran memtest rigorously on all RAM, and RAM combinations, and they all passed with flying colors.

    just for info, these are connected to my MacPro:
    -5GB RAM
    -SIIG PCIe 3 port Firewire800 card
    -RME Fireface800 (audio interface)
    -M-Audio FW1814 (another audio interface)
    -Logic USB key
    -iLok
    -HP deskjet 3520 printer

    ...i went to Console, and checked out "panic.log" to see what made the kernal panics. while i'm not efficient at decoding these panic log's, but i did see some patterns.

    4/5 times, it mentions "com.m-audio.driver.firewire (1.7.4)". and 1/5 times, it's "com.apple.NDAResman", which i have no idea what that is. so i would suspect it is a bad M-Audio driver.

    however, in every single log, the common thing that shows up is "dependency: com.apple.iokit.IOPCFamily". i wonder if this is the problem.:confused:

    i have included my kernal panic log below, so you log wizards, please help!! i don't want any grey screen of death anymore...:(

    Despite having run memory tests, have you tried taking the third-party RAM out?

    I'd start by taking out the M-Audio interface and seeing if things get better. Do you have the latest drivers for this peripheral? Also, for the record the memory tests are pathetic at finding bad RAM. They often pass bad RAM off as acceptable, as Nermal the Intuitive Yet Sometimes Snarly implied. Nevertheless, I don't think RAM is the problem here. :)

    yeah, that's what i'm doing now; M-Audio is disconnected unless i really have to use it (for some clients).

    i do have the latest driver, and i've also emailed their Tech Support regarding the issue. i know M-Audio's notorious for making shoddy drivers, but i must say they are getting better tho (been using it for 4 yrs now).

    anybody wanna take a shot at what com.apple.iokit.IOPCIFamily is? since i have 2 audio interfaces, i wonder if i need to do something with "aggregate devices" implementation Apple mentioned for the new OS?

    I'll go out on a limb and say it's merely a flow-on from the M-Audio interface crashing. FWIW, I can't seem to find your model on the M-Audio website. I was hoping to do a little research so, since I know nothing about audio equipment, does it go by another name or could I find it somewhere else? :eek:

    Man all this Kernel Panic I see with many people using Third Party Ram. Make me glad I hold out and wait for cheaper price that is Apple made.

    again, i doubt it's the RAM. i've tested each combination thru at least 10 instances of memtest. and all passed. yes, i tried Rember, Terminal, and Single-user mode. all tests passed.

    mad jew, here's the link (FW=Firewire):

    I want to add yet again that my first installation of OS X (the one that came on my HD) was corrupted and had to be reinstalled.

    I was getting panics and other problems

    Thanks theblotted. Tell us how it goes with the M-Audio interface disconnected. :)

    believe me, the first thing i did after receiving my Mac was reinstalling the entire system. i can't stand having all these Apps on my OS that i'll never use.

    actually, i reinstalled my entire system last night, due to Monolingual corrupting my Rosetta (note to everybody: don't use "Architecture" unless you wanna lose Rosetta on Intel)...

    so far, it's working well... kind of. i actually didn't have M-Audio device connected, but i still got 1 kernal panic. after that, it's been smooth sailing with even the M-Audio connected (knock on wood).

    i also got word from M-Audio ppl, saying that their drivers don't support multiple FW interfaces connected... which kind of defeats the point of Apple's aggragate device or let alone having different interfaces for work (RME as main interface, M-Audio for ProTools, etc.)

    I'm gonna go way out on limb here and suggest you give Apple a call. After all, it is a new computer eh? But before you do, try taking out the ram (even though you know for sure there is nothing wrong with it). Run your Mac for a day or two to see if you can duplicate the problem. When trouble shooting you always retrace your steps. Maybe even go so far as to return the computer to it's default state... like it was when you got it. You might even consider doing a software restore. If you get kernal panics with everything at factory settings, then you have a defective computer.

    FWIW, I've had my MacPro for almost 2 months now and have had ZERO kernal panics. Since you have so many in such a short time, you've got major problems. Major problems are easier to solve if you simplify and eliminate the obvious.

    There ya go. It sounds like that's the problem. Just avoid having anything else plugged in when you use the M-Audio kit. :)

    funnily, after my reinstall, the only kernal panic i got was from RME Fireface's driver; no mention of M-Audio driver.

    see here:

    strange, cuz i do have an extra PCIe FW card to run the different interfaces, so they don't "fight", per se... perhaps i need to look into aggregate devices?
