    My macbook keeps coming up with the following kernal panic which shows as an error before you can even log in and starts a loop of restarts. Usually 2 or 3 before it allows you to log in past the encryption. I replaced one of the SSD's which seemed to fix the issue for several weeks and now it has returned with exactly the same issue. Can anyone shed any light on this issue? Help is very appreciated.

    Looks like bad RAM, but the SSD insatll could be an issue too. Try removing one stick, boot, then the other, boot again...I think a visit to Crucial might be in order.

    In the core of a black hole.
    Run Apple Hardware Test to see if there are any Hardware issues, if no errors show up you are likely OK, then the problem is the OS.

    Many times it points towards hardware but I don't see anything here in this report.

    Run AHT first by holding D at startup.

    I have tried with the RAM before and its not an issue. Also have swapped SSD's to different brand before which didn't fix it.

    But, what I have done now is switch off the filevault. Which appears to be working... I shall keep you posted.

    Ah yeah, filevault which seems to have problems with certain SSD's, should have known.
