Hi- My friend recently purchased his first Mac and loves it and the silver iPod mini he got with it. Unfortunately, the iPod hard drive died and now after we turned on ICS for something we were working on, a kernel panic has been occuring every time he connects to the internet.... not always at the same time, sometimes within an hour or within in 30 seconds. He's got Tiger 10.4.2 and a dial-up connection on his 1.25 GHz Rev. B Mac mini. Any ideas? What about the iPod? it makes a weird, almost like "alarm" sound. Makes me think it's the hard drive. Also, we've looked on the iPod mini support pages and have tried everything it says to do. Looks like the HD is shot. Did he just get two lemons?!?! Thanks.
