    Hi all!

    The last time I have some random crashing on my iMac. I really don't know what's happening here.. I already tried to reinstall MacOS (format the disk and reinstall it) - but that didn't work.

    I copied the details of my computer crash and pasted it on pastebin here;

    I hope that somebody can point out what's happening here, thanks! If you maybe need some info, pls comment below!

    Looks like it might have something to do with a driver for an attached USB device. Disconnect all your USB devices except for your keyboard and mouse and see if you can start while holding down the shift key.

    Thanks JohnDS! My iMac will start no matter what. The crash is just very random and not every day, week or month.

    I have multiple USB-devices attached all the time, like; External Sound driver; Scarlet 2i2, USB hub, Logitech receiver, 2 external HDD's.

    It's a bit hard to wait for nothing, since the errors are not common on my iMac.

    Is the hub a powered hub? If not, you may have a problem with your USB bus not delivering enough power for multiple devices.
