Random Kernel Panics and no idea how to proceed...

Recommended Posts

Hello everybody,

 

I am experiencing some very frustrating behavior from my 10.7.2 Lion Hackintosh, and I have no idea how to approach the problem... any help would be greatly appreciated.

 

Some background information about the system:

 

Gigabyte z68XP-UD3

Intel Core i7 - 2600k

16GB Corsair memory (2x8GB)

Gigabyte HD6870

Seasonic x750 Power Unit

Dell 3011 + Dell 2412 monitors connected via the two Displayports

 

Operating System on a Intel 80GB Solid State Drive

Data, including "user home" on a 2TB Seagate Hard drive

Another 1TB + 500GB old hard drives used for random stuff

Time Machine backups on a Hitachi 3TB drive

 

Wireless Apple Keyboard and Trackpad connected via a Belkin Bluetooth dongle (inserted in one of the Dell 30" USB ports)

 

Installed last spring following a tutorial found online, using ###### and then ######. The system is recognized in About this Mac as a Mac Pro, early 2008.

 

The problem:

 

Kernel panics. I cannot find any single common element between the different instances when it happens. Sometimes it's just one hour between two kernel panics, sometimes the computer does not have any problem for a week. Lately it seems they are becoming more frequent though, hence I decided it's time to fix this. It's not temperature related (I checked temperatures) and does not happen more often when the computer is pushed (in fact I had a kernel panic while the computer was totally idle). Can't tell if it's a software problem or a hardware problem. Have no idea how to diagnose the kp. I did try to read up on the forum but with little success.

 

Any help would be greatly appreciated, because I now fear I might just be losing the patient (as I said, the kp seem to become more and more frequent).

 

I am still on 10.7.2 because I was working at something very critical and I really needed to minimize down-time risks. But ideally I would like to go to Mountain Lion now... but I do not understand if it would likely help solving the KP problem or instead make it worse or more complicated to diagnose...

 

Sorry for the noobness, it's my first OsX system and have still little capacity to troubleshoot it.

    • I used to sell a weight loss product that's one among Herzolex Ultra most effective and only available. We have a tendency to parted ways in which not because their product became less effective, however as a result of they decided to travel with different marketing strategies. Herzolex Ultra Erfahrungen I was comfortable with that product. It work my personal perspective of sell something that you'd recommend to friends or family, or use yourself, even if you were not being paid.

    • 72 bytes looks just the same to me, Ok just define one additional struct for all the four blocks (or an array of structs). edk2 only parse the "Standard Timing Identification"  maybe for a good reason for their purpose. Thanks for testing. As soon as I finished the new code I need more tests 
    • Buongiorno, ho un PC Fisso Hackintosh perfettamente aggiornato, ma ho un problema che mi affligge ormai da qualche aggiornamento. Nel momento che riavvio il PC o comunemente lo spengo, al riavvio lo sfondo è quello predefinito e di conseguenza mi tocca modificarlo ogni volta per farsì che rimanga fino al successivo riavvio. Ci premetto a dire, che sto usando due monitor collegati, non so se questo può influenzare la situazione. Grazie anticipatamente.
