Just when the desktop appears, I get the kernel panic notification. Trouble is, I'm traveling right now and so I don't have the restore disc and the timemachine backups. I tried to boot from lion restore by pressing the alt key whilst rebooting but the only option is the HD. I tried the safe mode shift key to no avail. I tried to use disk utility through a USB key but can't fix the disk because it's grayed out prolly because I have disk encryption activated and the code is in the HD (yeah I know, dumb as hell). I'm running out of options what can I do? This is really a classic case of murphy's law!
