    Hi folks,

    I have an iMac Late 2012. Today it just crashed and doesn´t start anymore. I always get an kernel panic:

    As I understand it, has something to do with the storage (may be the SSD or HDD)?!
    I already checked the RAM. That seems to be ok.

    Also tried:
    Shift+S
    PRAM Reset
    CMD+R
    Disconnected from power

    Is there any other thing I could do by myself?

    Thank you

    Regards,

    Dhalsim

    I see that you tried everything but safe mode, however, I don't think that will work either if Single User mode didn't. Do you have a Fusion drive in that machine? You might need to make an appointment with the genius bar at your local Apple Store, but first try this: If you have a bootable external hard drive, attach it to the iMac via USB and see if you can boot with it.

    Hi chscag,
    Thanks for your help!
    I tried safe mode, didn´t work. Same krenel panic.

    I will try to use a bootable usb drive.

    Also, disconnect all external peripherals (other than the keyboard and mouse) before booting to see if that makes a difference.

    Hi,
    Yeah, tested that, but doesn´t help. I made an appointment at an Apple Store now.
    Lets see what they say. Unfortunately it the iMac has no more guarantee. :/
