Kernel panic at boot, safe boot works fine

Post by paolobrolin » November 29th, 2011, 5:46 am

Hello all,
I'm a new face here and have been fortunate enough to never really need support, however at this point, I'm completely lost. First of all I want to apologize if my English is bad, Swedish is my native language.

My specs:
MBP 5,1 (late 2008) 15.4"
CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo 2,53 GHz
Memory: Apple native 4GB
Boot ROM Version: MBP51.007E.B05
System Version: Mac OS X 10.7.2 (11C74) Lion
Kernel Version: Darwin 11.2.0
SATA HDD: ST9250410AS Seagate Momentus 7200RPM 250GB

I have a very annoying problem that I dont know how to solve. When I try to boot my MBP normally I get kernel panic before getting to the login-screen. The kernel panic occurs 1-2 minutes into loading while the gray Apple-logo still is on screen.

Booting in safe mode works just fine (wifi, wired network and other critical os x functions works - While gfx-, audio-, spotlight-, etc. kexts are disabled). This problem occurred a few months ago while using the MBP normally (e.g. browsing the web). Since then I have done the following troubleshooting:

1. Switched to other HDD:s with both Snow Leopard-/Lion set-ups (fresh installs, same kernel panic)
2. Tried to reinstall from USB (same kernel panic)
3. Zapped PRAM

My thoughts: Some non-essential component in my MBP is malfunctioning, but since it works just fine in safe boot mode I figure that if I disable/remove the right kext(s) it should boot up fine in normal mode as well? (without the functionality of the component(s) that is disabled)

Im having a hard time to localize the origin of the error since I dont have any experience of interpreting Mac kernel logs.

Maybe you guys have any answers? Ill be eternally thankful for any thought, advice och help I can get!


I have recorded logs from two different crashes:

Kernel panic #1

Re: Kernel panic at boot, safe boot works fine

Post by wove » November 29th, 2011, 10:26 pm

A couple of the panics seem related to this from your log:

"Error getting a reference to IODeviceTree:/options"

The IODeviceTree begins as part of open firmware. You can access it by holding down command-option-o-f during boot. The following commands issued from the Firmware prompt will reset the open firmware:

reset-nvram
set-defaults
reset-all

Your Mac will then restart.

Problems with the device tree could also be caused by hardware problems. Booting into single user mode by starting in single user mode (startup holding down command S) and running this at the prompt:

fsck -fy

Will check and repair the hard drive.

Re: Kernel panic at boot, safe boot works fine

Post by leonAzul » December 16th, 2011, 4:40 pm

All Intel-based Macs are EFI-based. Open Firmware will go extinct when the last of the PowerPC Macs have been retired.

To reset the PRAM, "cnd + opt + P + R" does still work, and might actually help since a reset would cause the computer to rescan the motherboard for available devices instead of looking for something that is not there anymore.

There is an error trying to launch "com.cisco.anyconnect.vpnagentd". The log reads:

Nov 28 11:48:55 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.cisco.anyconnect.vpnagentd[54]): posix_spawn("/opt/cisco/vpn/bin/vpnagentd", ...): No such file or directory
Nov 28 11:48:55 localhost com.apple.launchd[1] (com.cisco.anyconnect.vpnagentd[54]): Exited with code: 1

Does this look like something you have installed?

I am wondering if this is really the case, or whether it indicates a problem with one of your network interfaces, perhaps EN0 (the ethernet card on the motherboard)? Was there ever a time when this computer expected an external NIC at startup?

Just to clarify, when you wrote "safe boot", did you mean "single-user mode"?

Here is link to the key bindings available at startup for an MBP.
