Hi everyone.


After reading dozens of threads about kernel panics I couldn't find any appropriate post.


So you see, I've got a unibody MacBook late 2008 and as the thread name states I'm experiencing kernel panics on startup. The weird thing is, these panics occur totally random and I can't induce them. Usually I have an apple keyboard, apple mouse and a WD 1TB drive (TimeMachine backup) connected via USB plus an external monitor and magsafe power. Even after disconnecting all that stuff I receive kernel panics.


I haven't had any kernel panic during normal operation so far. As soon as I get the system up and running nothing happens. They just keep coming every second or third startup.


There are 9 crash reports in my L/Logs/Diag.Reports. You can see the last kernel panic report here:
