What is Kernel Panic?
But, what about Kernel Panic? Have you heard the name before?
Kernel Panic is a low-level error (normally on faulty hardware) that the system is unable to recover from resulting in a system restart and can damage your data or even the system.
As a method of protecting the system from corruption, the system restarts without notifying the user.
The kernel panic produces messages reporting the error causes. This information can be useful for technicians for debugging but is hard to understand for inexperienced users.
