So I accidently wiped out my hard drive and now I can't install it back.

    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities

     

    As I can see, you have an Early 2011 MacBook Pro, and looking to the Darwin version (10.0.0), you are trying to start from a Snow Leopard DVD with Mac OS X 10.6. Your Mac requires a special Mac OS X version that it's only available on the DVD that came with your Mac, so that's the reason you are seeing the kernel panic. Call Apple to get replacement DVDs > http://support.apple.com/kb/HE57

     

    After you get the replacement DVDs, insert the Mac OS X DVD, press C key while your Mac is starting and install Mac OS X. When it finishes, open  > Software Update and install the most recent version

    You must keep your Mac OS X discs because you will need them if something happens with the Mac

    If you ever installed Lion or Mt Lion and you installed firmware updates you can use the Apple Online Internet Recovery system to reload Lion, maybe not Mt Lion.

     

    If you ever install Lion or Mt Lion and you only erased the Macintosh HD part of you drive you can still boot the system to the Built in Recovery HD partition on the internal drive.

     

    To boot to the Recovery HD partition at startup hold down the Command+r keys.

     

    To boot to the Online Internet Recovery system hold down the Command+Option/Alt+r keys at startup until you see a Spinning globe in the center of the screen.

     

    For either have the system WIRED to your internet router, Ethernet cable from computer to router.
