    There are a few different options, let us know if it helps.

    Personally, I believe you will need to wipe the drive and reinstall. Or, if you can boot to a different drive, you should be able to pull your data off the "afflicted" drive.
    I've tried all the above. doesnt work. still gave me kernel panics. i cant even boot past recovery.

    BTW: Were those models also affected by the bad graphics/logic board that Apple had an extended replacement for that was available and done on my 2007 15" MacBook Pro model? And if so, was the replacement done? That plan as long since expired.

    Just a thought.

If something like this happens (not hardware based KP's)...and booting from a clean/problem-free external HD doesn't help...then I'm thinking something firmware-based could be the issue.

    For example...if a firmware update/upgrade was applied...and it was either the incorrect firmware upgrade...or something happened in the middle of a firmware upgrade (computer was shut off for example)...then maybe these KP's could be the result.

    Of course many times KPs are hardware based (many times bad RAM based)...and RAM was already mentioned as swapped out by the OP. if this situation is a hardware based KP issue...then maybe it was an unfortunate coincidence that these KP's started at the same time as the Linux install.

    i too had a feeling it was caused by the linux install but really not sure what happened. this macbook have gone through thick and thin with me. one of the most solid laptops. trying out different fixes and until i decide to retire this macbook. i am just certain theres no hardware issues else i would have known.

    maybe you're right kp was caused by linux install or incorrect firmware upgrade. i remember that i didnt do any firmware upgrade. or maybe it was in the midst of firwmare upgrade i shut down or restarted i aint too sure. i had it upgraded with an SSD. so how do i go by fixing it? please advise. is there a way? i've tried connecting my drive via usb, recovery, new hdd all gave me KP.

    Will it even boot into Target Disk Mode??

    Press and hold down the T key at boot time.

    PS: is there any startup boot chime with your boot attempts???

    I'm wondering if the Linux install tried to install GRUB, got half done, got broken, now when it tries to boot GRUB tries to do things the Mac can't/won't handle and ends up in a KP. The KPs shown all seem to be occurring in different places, but none of them have even identified what version of macOS it's trying to load. At this point I'm wondering even if somehow the machine can be boot from an external completely? Not recovery, not Safe Mode, totally external, like a USB drive or thumb drive.

    Whatever it is, it's happening really early in the boot process, according to the KP reports. So has an external boot process been tried?

    hi jake, you might be right. it's slowly coming back to me. i too got a feeling it had to do with a broken linux/grub. but didnt think much about it. this might be the last straw. i've ruled out most of the hardware problems. stripped everything apart from the wifi bluetooth ram dvd drive hdd.

    gonna try to create a copy of linux on a usb thumbdrive and try to boot. i will keep you guys posted.

    +1, and I must admit that I'm inclined to agree with you and your diagnosis Jake.

    BTW: Are all non-essential peripherals disconnected???
