    Hi everyone

    i have a 2011 15" macbook pro. I was running lion and today i was installing the new thunderbolt and airport utility update via software update. there was some problem during the installation and my mbp started giving kernel panics after that. I have reinstalled snow leopard from my install disk and now the problem is solved.

    What is the cause for kernel panic?? should i worry or just move on??
    do i have any hardware issue??

    If you get a screen that looks like this:

    It's called a kernel panic. If it doesn't happen again, or very infrequently, don't worry about it.
