I'm on the verge of taking my Mini in for a service, but wanted to get a second opinion before throwing away money on something I may be able to fix myself. The trouble started when I tried to copy a movie to a CD-R using Burrrn. The disc started spinning and vibrating like crazy and sounded like an aeroplane taking off. The computer froze so all I could do to avert meltdown was turn it off by holding down the power button for five seconds. When I tried starting it up again I was faced with the kernel panic of death screen. I can't boot it up via the primary HD or DVD using the startup manager. My OS X Tiger DVD fails to boot (the grey screen, Apple logo and spinning gear appear, but it won't progress beyond this stage) and I can't run the hardware diagnostics test from the install disc. I've tried all the usual tricks: clearing the firmware, disconnecting and reconnecting everything including the power plug, starting up in safe mode/single user mode and so on, and still I can't get into the operating system. I'm at the end of my tether. Could someone please do me a favour and take a look at the screenshot below showing the verbose mode log and tell me if there's anything I can do to salvage my defunct Mini?
