    I just had to restart my computer (Macbook Pro 13") for the first time in history.

    Getting this message box on the screen forcing me to restart it:

    "You need to restart your computer. Hold down the Power button until it turns off" [...]

    Here´s the error report for it:

    You can't really make sure it can never happen again. Things like that happen from time to time, and if its your first ever kernel panic, I wouldn't worry about it too much :p

    Probably a hard drive issue as the unloaded kernel extensions are referencing IOkit.

    Boot to the install disk (put the disk in, restart the machine, and hold option after pressing the power button), click through the first menu until you see the menu bar appear then click Utilities > Disk Utility. Select your internal drive and hit 'repair disk' on the lower right hand side of the screen.

    Let us know if the repair is successful

    Seems like Parallels is the culprit. Do a PRAM reset.
