    I tried installing leopard on my first generation mbpro. It has a core duo, 2ghz, 2gb of ram. After the installation, the computer would have a kernel panic almost every hour. From the reading I have done, it seems like ram is the most common problem of a kernel panic. I have switched out ram sticks, and still have the kernel panics.

    I have since gone back to Tiger, but am still having kernel panics.

    I am not sure what else to do in order to try and solve this problem.

    Thanks for any help

    Do you have the hardware test disc?

    Are you doing a clean install?

    My MBP was kernel panicking on me the other day, a full fresh install of Snow Leopard on a wiped drive and then a time machine restore seems to have fixed it.

    Otherwise it could be something deeper in your system that is causing issues.

    I have all the original discs, so I should have it.

    When I installed leopard I did a fresh install two times and did snow leopard once. Going back to tiger I did another fresh install.

    I don't use this computer anymore since I bought a mini over the weekend, but hopefully no serious hardware problems as I would like to sell it for a couple hundred
