I am currently trying to reload my Mac with the MAC OS X discs and i have been reading arouond because i have no idea where to start. I started the computer and tried to boot to disc, which is seemingly working until the kernal panick message comes up. It happens sometimes when it has fully booted and is leting me start the reload, and it is sometimes happening before it even finishes thinking when i tell it to Boot to disc. From what i have read about these panick messages it is a hardware issue, is there anything else that can cause them, and is there anything that can be done outside of replacing hardware? If you need more information then i can tr and give it to you I just don't know where to start in what to tell you, but please help if you can it would be most appreciated.
