Re: Was a perfect Type 11 install; Now panics at darwin boot - 02-07-2009, 03:37 AM
Running Disk Warrior gave me some noticeable gains in speed. After the OS and files and apps were installed I was up to 50% fragmentation of the directory.
But it repaired it so well that I had to reinstall DellEFI... lol
But now come to think of it, how could an SSD HD slow down if its fraged? It has no spinning parts, no plateau's. How could that affect its speed? I dunno.

OK, i am getting this error to, but on a brand new Mini with a dell 64gb. Strange, if I use the Type11 iso, to then boot into Osx it is fine, but if I try a direct boot into OSX, get the Kernel panic. Using DellMiniBoot123v8.01.iso and DellEFI1.07.1

Similar kernel panic - 05-13-2009, 03:13 PM
I've got a similar kernel panic, with similar circumstances. I had been happily running for a couple of weeks. Then, for the first time, I started doing iChat video. While we were doing a video session, my 6-year-old son said it just stopped. Sure enough, I've got the "you need to press the power button" grey screen. It hasn't worked since. Some might accuse my son of dropping it or whatever, but I am pretty confident he didn't. For good measure, I took out and reseated the WiFi board and it made no difference.
Well, no amount of booting, safe booting, DellEFI updates, etc. seems to work. I can do two things to make it boot and run happily:
1. disable the WLAN in the BIOS
2. boot normally but don't connect it to my WiFi network at home (i.e., don't enter the WPA key)
If I boot it up with WiFi enabled and it connects to my WLAN at home, I get about 2 seconds and then it crashes. If I boot it in verbose mode and it already has the WiFi enabled (so it connects as soon as it can during the boot process), I get a kernel panic (attached).
Last night I used the BootMaker 0.3.3 to make a USB bootable image and installed from my 10.5.0 retail disc. I reformatted the 32G SSD with no errors. I haven't been able to get the 10.5.6 update on there, yet, but it's the same kernel panic if I use WiFi.
Do I have bad hardware somewhere? Everything else seems to work fine.
