More than likely if it's kernel panicing right at startup, it's bad RAM. Try replacing that if you have some extra just to see if that works.

Unfortunatly I dont have any regarding the 3 Icons what do they do I cant switch to any, The icon with the crossed hdd seems the only one when hitting enter takes me back to the kernel

No clue, I don't really use Linux, and definitely don't use it on a Mac.

But it sounds like bad hardware, most likely RAM.
