    iMac 24" mid 2007 woes
    Hi

    After a bit of advice re my (above) iMac.

    Last week working fine, this week rebooting on a loop with the attached details coming up on screen just before rebooting.

    configuration as follows:
    iMac 24", 2.4 ghz, 512 video, 320gb hdd, 4gb RAM running OS X 10.8.

    HDD is only about 50%

    Many thanks, in advance, for your help.

    Regards

    Rob K

    It looks like a kernel panic but I can't be sure of what it's telling us. Can you post the entire KP log entry instead of a photo?

    Thanks for your reply chscag.

    I am afraid that seems to be all I can get out of the iMac at the moment. All that happens when I boot up is a reboot loop with that small amount of information coming up, for maybe a second or two, right before it reboots again.

    If you are able to advise how I might circumvent the reboot loop and where to access the KP log I will try to pull off and post.

    Thanks

    See if you can get it to boot up in Safe Mode: Reboot, but hold down the shift key as soon as you hear the boot chime. If it boots in Safe Mode, you may be able to find out what's happening from the logs.

    Thanks. I ve tried reboot to safe mode as you suggested but no go. No sound on boot either. Just a short message saying there has been a problem booting last time and to wait a few secs or press any key to continue. It then goes on to apple logo then the text comes up that I posted as attachment above. Not good me thinks!

    Try using Lion Recovery and check out the hard drive for starters:-

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
