    I'm getting this error message: 'panic(cpu 0 caller OX0039C213): Unable to find driver for this platform "ACPI", overlaid on the kernel panic screen at startup.

    I can't reboot into safe mode. In single user mode and verbose mode, the same error message appears and I can't type anything after it does.

    This happened after I HAD a kernel panel, booted into safe mode, uninstalled recently installed applications (norton antivirus and stuffit) and deleted items from library/startupitems.
    i then restarted to see if it would work normally, but now i can't even boot into safe mode.

    i'm posting all of this from the windows partition of my macbook, which works fine.

    HELP! my macbook is (sigh) not even 2 months old.

    Reinstall Mac OSX. Norton is known to "kill" OSX from time to time and is not ever recommended to install.

    Toss Norton in the trash. Then format and reinstall...
