    I have a MacBook Air 11 inch (Mid-2012) model and I get the following error message displayed for a few seconds on the screen, soon after I power it on. The computer automatically restarts afterwards and the same cycle keeps repeating.

    Below is the screenshot of the error:

    I would really appreciate a response/feedback.

    Can you boot to your Recovery system?
    (Restart, while holding Command-R)
    If you can, run Disk Utility, and try a Repair Disk.
    If that completes with no problems found, Quit Disk Utility, which will return you to the recovery menu.
    Then, you will likely want to Reinstall OS X. It will use your internet connection to download the system, then will continue with the reinstall. You won't lose your own files and apps, but the reinstall will simply reinstall the system in place.
    Assuming your boot drive is still good, that should fix your kernel panic issue.

    Thanks for the prompt reply. At your suggestion, I was finally able to reinstall the OS and clear the kernel error without losing any data.
