This starts OS X with the 32-bit kernel.  The following KB applies to 10.6, but there are reports this works with 10.7 as well.


[extracted from http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3773]

If your Mac uses the 64-bit kernel by default, you can start up with the 32-bit kernel by holding the 3 and 2 keys during startup.



With respect to the question above about Core 2 Duo vs. Core i5, the default kernel mode for Core 2 Duo is 32-bits. This explains why the Core 2 Duo has no issues, while the Core i5 must be forced to use the 32-bit kernel.

These Macs use the 64-bit kernel by default in Mac OS X v10.6.
