Hey all, I'm helping a friend with a recurring kernel panic issue she has with a 13" Macbook Pro 2012 2.5Ghz i5. The kernel panic happens at random, and the computer will usually just shut down or reboot immediately. Sometimes there are black spots or artifacts that appear on the screen. The kernel panic screen doesn't always appear, but when it does, it's not the full black screen, but simply the light grey kernel panic screen. However, the kernel panic never leaves any logs in the /System/Logs/DiagnosticReports folder. I do have evidence of one kernel panic however, after running the nvram -p command in Terminal. I do see the raw data from AAPL,PanicInfoº002</key> entry. I might have had more, but I reset the NVRAM in an attempt to resolve the panics, but this most recent kernel panic occurred after the reset, which is why it is present in the nvram log. Is there a way to parse this log, or to convert it to a readable format? If so, I'd be happy to post the output so that another knowledgeable user could assist me with this. My other question is, what kind of kernel panics do not dump logs in the DiagnosticReports directory? Does that signify a hardware error? I haven't found any issues with the OS itself, and there are no third party drivers or kexts installed. A random system restart did occur even in Safe Mode as well.
