I have found all your posts incredibly helpful up to this point.
I have Lion 10.7.2 running almost flawlessly on my boyfriend's X61, however he encounters occasional kernel panics and from what we can tell it only happens when he is using a windows file e.g. a word document or excel file.
Does anyone know how I could possibly correct this?
If you need an more info let me know.
Thanks so much.
If I were you, i'd try to update office to the latest version (it seems to be office related) and maybe try and open those files in different programs (maybe Preview, Pages, Libreoffice (free download at http://www.libreoffice.org/download/
... ) if it opens without problems, then it's office related and maybe you should ask directly to your program's support service. If it still crashes, it might be filesystem related (Do you have those files in your windows partition? -> then try and copy them to other media first, if it works after that, try to update/change the way you access that filesystem).
Also, try to see what is your system telling/logging, you can do it through the terminal or Console.app, both of them in /Applications/Utilities.
I see that there were some problems with your filesystem (probably your system crashed on prior reboots), I can't tell you exactly what is going on from your screenshot, (I am no pro anyways) but maybe, if you get to boot your system from a usb, and reinstall at least the /S/L/E files and DSDT.aml, and if possible, reinstall the system. That way you can get a "cleaner" output, that might expose in a clearer way what is wrong in your system.
If you boot from a usb, you might also open the Terminal.app from the installation system's "utilities" menu, where you can access to your system logs to get a full log output (logs are in /var/log/kernel.log and /var/log/system.log, in your booted installation system you'll find them in /Volumes/lion OS root/var/log/kernel.log and /Volumes/lion OS root/var/log/system.log). You can use any typical console command to get the output of those files, like cat
. Or you could copy them to the installation media and open them in another system/installation (I suppose you have access to one, as you are posting in this forum
