Q: Kernel failure after Time Machine restore


Hi all,

My iMac recently had a hard disk failure. I took it to the local Apple Store where they replaced the drive and reinstalled Mac
OS X. When I got the machine home all was working well... until I tried to restore from a Time Machine backup. The restore
process completed, apparently successfully, but when I attempted to boot the computer I got the following, which having
Googled, I believe is a kernel panic:

panic(cpu 1 caller 0x47f5ad): "Process 1 exec of /sbin/launchd failed, errno 8\n"@SourceCache/xnu/xnu-

I'm really at a loss as to what to do now, but I am panicking somewhat as I need the computer working ASAP and am
paranoid I may have lost my entire music and photo collections.

Any advice and solutions would be hugely appreciated!

Cheers.

A: I've managed to solve this problem - thank goodness!

In case anyone else is having this problem this is what worked for me:

Start computer and insert Installation Disk provided when the computer was purchased;
Restart computer and boot to disk by holding down 'C' whilst booting;
Run Disk Utility from top meu and erase hard drive;
Restart computer - booted to CD straight away for me;
Reinstall Mac OSX;
During reinstallation select to restore from Time Machine backup.

Everything seems to be running fine for me, with no data lost.

Simon, thanks a million. I went through the same problem, and your work around succeeded on my MacBook Pro as well.

I use restore function (TM) from MAC OS Installer utilities.

If I use restore function (TM) as part of installation sequence I get error: ...other MAC is running newer version of MAC OS X.

(fact: DVD disk 10.5.7, backup TM 10.6.8)

Any suggestions are highly appreciated.

I had the same problem and surreysimon's solution did not work for me. Instead, I ran into same issues as Peter DK. After trying many
different combinations, I finally found a solution. Basically use Time Machine that comes with Lion to restore. Note: we are just using
Lion's TM. Not installing Lion.

Get OS X Lion and create a bootable DVD (Google it on how)


http://www.macstories.net/mac/os-x-lion-installation-guide-boot-discs-and-qa/
Boot from OS X Lion CD (hold 'C' while booting the computer)
Use Disk Utility (4th item in Lion's OS X Utilities) to erase the target drive/partition
Restore From Time Machine Backup (1st item in Lion's OS X Utilities)

Doing this restored my Mac exactly as it was, i.e. w/ Snow Leopard and all my apps and data intact. Here's an explaination of what I
think happened.

My Mac originally came with SL 10.6.5 DVD. I've been keeping up w/ software updates, which brought my Mac to SL 10.6.8. I used my
original DVD to restore TM backup which caused kernel panic. My guess is the TM included with SL 10.6.5 is not able to properly
restore TM backups made with SL 10.6.8. If I had gotten SL 10.6.8 DVD, I suspect TM restore would have worked fine. Instead, I used
Lion DVD to restore TM backup which worked just as well.

surreysimon's solution didn't work because of the same issue. I followed the steps using my original 10.6.5 DVD, but TM restore
function as part of installation sequence would error saying the backup is newer version of OS X; same error Peter DK saw. Using
migration utility after installing and updating SL doesn't work. It only restores data and not the apps.

In case you are wondering, I upgraded my other Mac to Lion but keeping this one on SL. I'm seeing too many nagging issues with
Lion which I hope Apple will fix before I upgrade this one.

Had this exact situation and this solution worked perfectly.

For 10.6.8, use Lion bootable install media.

A couple differences in my case:

- I folowed the instructions to create a bootable Lion USB drive instead of a DVD. (The only other Mac I had available was an older Mac
Mini which cannot write DVDs.)

- To choose the boot drive in my case requires holding down the Option key rather than 'C'.

In most cases, all you have to do is install a fresh version of OSX "over" the restored one -- no erasing necessary.

See #E8 in Time Machine - Troubleshooting.

I have a Mac Pro so I can't eject the disk drive to install the OS X cd. What do I do?

I had the same error after replacing my hdd and doing a restore. I wonder if my problem was caused by a change in hdd name. When
I installed the new hdd I gave it a clever name, but the restore I used had the standard name, "macintosh hd." I erased the drive
returning it to the default name and i am restoring again now. We shall see what happens.

Is it probable that this caused my issue?

P.S. Watching House while working on your computer makes you want to write all the symptoms on a white board to solve the issues.
