Hi

 

In case you have not managed to fix this. I just had the EXACT same thing happen to my wife's iMac overnight. And I meant exact! Won't boot to target mode, or most anything else. Verbose mode will work to give you the uuid message, CD install disk will kernel panic the machine.

 

In the process of fixing I re-learned a valuable tenet of debugging....start with the easier to check things first!

 

In short, I finally tracked it down to being one of the 4 8G Kingston sticks in the machine. But in the meantime, I had tried everything, including dismantling the machine to check both the SSD I installed 12 months ago and the 2.0TB HD; thinking that perhaps one of those had locked up the SATA bus completely.

 

So in short, check you RAM by removing it ALL, then put one stick in at a time! In my case, it was evident immediately as the first stick I put in started booting the machine fine.

 

Good luck and let us know if you fixed it and if it was the same issue!

Hi Voodoo88, I have exactly the same issue, and stuck for a while, not sure how you created your installation image, if you restored from orignial InstallESD.dmg in available OS X to U disk, you may encouter this issue. I created my U disk with myHack, it worked and installed successfully.
