    Before you go through the steps in this article, do you by chance have Hands Off! installed? If so, these steps may be relevant instead.

    I experienced the same thing. It's an unrecoverable kernel panic. First 10.6.7 removed an audio output from my sound preferences then 10.6.8 triggered this kernel panic. After an hour at the genius bar I was told I needed a new logic board. Has anyone else experienced similar problems with either update?
