    Macbook Air 2010 version(64gb)

    computer suddenly rebooted, and won't reboot into OSX. there was a bootcamp partition which it can boot into, but after a while, it just freezes and requires a reboot.

    I have tried reinstalling the OS X part, but wasn't successful, i have tried the following:
    formatted the main partition and reinstall
    using internet recovery
    new usb installation

    none of them worked, and eventually comes up with this message(pic)...

    can anyone share any suggestions?

    Thanks

    That's a kernel panic, never a good sign.

    I suspect the SSD might be corrupted or the RAM's given up the ghost. Do you have an Apple Store local to yourself?

    Thanks

    EDITED: Either or, just go to see what the news is and what the cost is to repair, add up the costs and see what's the most economically viable solution.

    well, this is a 2010 model bought back in 2010, so I don't think they'll replace it for a new one.

    Crap sorry, I'm jumping between different threads and confusing myself.

    Basically if it was purchased in 2010 it's definitely out of warranty. I think it's only the 2011s that were exhibiting the problem with faulty Flash so not sure if it can be repaired free-of-charge.

    It's just worth taking in to see what they say, they won't charge you for the assessment so just see what they say and what the financial damage is.

    Sorry again for the confusion there, and I wish you the best of luck to get it sorted!
