I have a new PowerMac G4 1GHz dual.
This morning I started up this machine and a kernel panic message appeared.

I tried to reboot, but it didn't work.

I ran Apple Hardware Test, but it showed me no problems.

Then I ran Jaguar original CD to use disk utility, but another kernel panic message appeared.

This is the kernel panic message:

System Failure: cpu=1; code=00000001 (Corrupt Stack)
Latest crash info for cpu 1:
Exception state (sv=0x218F4280)
.
.
.
.

Kernel Version 6 ...


What to do?
Please help me!!!

After having used Drive 10 to try to repair the disk, I decided to reinstall Jaguar.

I put Jaguar CD on the drive, hold down C, but the system is blocked on gray apple screen.

So by using the mac in firewire mode, I formatted the hd from another mac.

Same situation:
I put Jaguar CD on the drive, hold down C, but the system is blocked on gray apple screen, but in place of the apple there's a circle with a diagonal line inside.

What is it???

Please help me!!

That is the 'not able to find a bootable volume' symbol.

Try rebooting with the Jag Disk 1 in but before you boot from the cd, reset the PRAM by holding down CMD+Opt+P+R and letting the computer chime 3 times.

After the 3rd chime hold the C down to try booting from the CD.

Kernel panic message appears while booting from jaguar original cd.

Corrupt stack from cpu 0.

maybe cpu0 is fubar.

If it is brand new and less than a year old (and/or you have applecare, call applecare or take it to an authozed service center. about 1.5 yrs. ago i was having some funky issues with my PowerBook Prismo and I had to send back to apple twice to have the processor replaced. it was all under warranty and the send a next-day airborne express box to me to send it back.

hmmm....another thought: are the porcs og the dual g4's ziffed in? maybe pull cpu0 out (not sure which proc is cpu0) and then try it. keep in mind that I am just taking a stab in the dark here. i have never done this before and don't have any idea what effect it may have on your machine...

Last time I saw this kind of comportement, it was the memory. If you have several memory elements (sorry, I don't know the english word for this), try to start your computer with only one. If it still crashes, try another one.
Better : ask a friend to lend you his memory.

This kind of problem caused panics on a friend's ibook under OSX, and on a NetBSD server ... I won't be surprised if it was that again !

I hope this can help

I believe both processors are on the same daughter card. either both are plugged in or their not. I wouldn't belive this would be the problem.
Although, like you said, it is a possibility.

I say make a call to 800 SOS APPLE :D

Yes, both cpus r on the same card.

And I have only 512MB memory block, so I can't test with others.

I don't want to try to remove cpu, I could make something wrong, so warranty will not be available anymore...

I call apple store.

Thanks for your help.
