I've been having an issue with kernel panics dating back with the 10.4.10 update. After updating I would receive a kp within 30 sec of restarting. I called apple and they told me 10.4.10 was mostly an update for the iPhone and that I don't need to update if I don't have an iPhone. So since I've been running 10.4.9 with no problems.

But now the issue is that I purchased Leopard and when I booted off the cd to install, I get a kp within 30 sec of trying to install. I did an hardware test and nothing showed up. I did a mem stress test on XP and it ran fine. Any ideas?

my mac:
Intel 2ghz Flat Panel iMac (the white one)
2 x 512mb DDR2 Memory (I've upgraded one to 2gig but the original memory creates the same issue)

Thanks

I would run the Apple Hardware Test - you'll need to use your original system disc(s).

Kernal Panics from a system update are not normal. OS 10.4.10 included a lot more than just updates for the iPhone.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

I ran the Apple Hardware Test off my original cd that came with the iMac and nothing came up.
