    Hey, i have a Mini which i use for Eyetv, i have pimped it for a year ago or something like that, suddenly for a couple of weeks ago, it started showing some kind og kernel panic failure.

    The other day i tried to re-install OSX, and now it wants to reboot everytime i try to start it up, try look at this video:

    I have tried to plug in a keyboard, and press D at startup, to try to make a hardware test, but it dont react by pressing D.

    Any advise what my next step should be, other then buy a new one :D

    Thanks for your advice.... Now it still wants to reboot over and over, but now i can force it to boot op by pressing D, and it runs a test, but it ends up with the reboot screen again....

    After i have reset like you told, it was possible to start up in "hardware-test-mode", and it told there was a ram failure, så i changed the ram, and it seems like it running smiithe again, after a clean install of snow leopard.

    Thanks alot for yuor help
