Question: iMac 201 continually restarts after upgrading to High Sierra

My 2010 iMac, with 12gb Ram is continually restarting after I upgraded to High Sierra. At times it will emit very loud beeps and then shut down, other times there is no warning beep, it just shuts down and restarts. It does this while in sleep mode and at times after it has been sleeping for 5-6 hours with the warning beep loud enough to awaken me in the other end of the house and it will do it when not in sleep mode but not in use either.

iMac, macOS Sierra (10.12)

Nothing stands out other than having a lot of Internet Plugins, some likely are outdated and not used. Uninstall any that fit that description. Millions (including myself) have had zero issues with HS so although there may be a few, the likely reason is the system was unstable to begin with. What I'd recommend is resetting the PRAM and then restarting in the Recovery Partition and reinstalling Mac OS . Perhaps your install was corrupt.

Thanks. I will do the boom driver


Where can I find instructions on reinstalling? I have not reinstalled the macOS other than updating since I bought this Mac in 2011

Instructions were provided in my last post. Restart in the Recovery Partition (Command +R on restart) and install.

OK, I reset the PRAM, uninstalled the Boom and reinstalled MacOS in the Recovery Mode. I will have to wait and see if this issue reoccurs now. I think I will leave the Boom device uninstalled at least for the time being in case it was the cause.

After reinstalling OS the system worked fine for several days. I reinstalled Boom2 and after one day the issue returned with extremely loud beeping and a shut down. I uninstalled Boom2, reset the PRAM and will see if it appears again. It seems the issue may be a compatibility problem with Mac HS and Boom2?
