Apple update 10.6.8 and Lion (10.7) cause Kernel Panics on MacPro 1,1

I bought my MacPro (MacPro 1,1) in September 2006 and nearly 5 years down the line it’s still going strong, or at least it was.

Some recent projects I’ve been involved in have required some serious processing power to render gigapixel images and the original 2xDual Core XEONs weren’t up to it. I found a matching pair of cheap E5345 QUAD core processors on eBay and fitted them (that’s another post that will be on here soon along with photos of the CPU swap out process). I threw some SSD’s in a RAID array in there for good measure too and the combination of those two things made a phenomenal difference to the rendering times. My Snow Leopard 10.6.7 install was nice and stable, not a single crash/hang/kernel panic or reboot.

Then Apple released a Snow Leopard update 10.6.8 to “ready you for Lion” so I dutifully upgraded the 10.6.7 I had installed on my SSD’s and it all went terribly wrong. The system now erratically rebooted itself and a look at the logs showed Kernel Panics all over the place. I have a second OS X 10.6.7 for emegency situations, booted into that and ran that for a few days and it was all fine. I rolled back my 10.6.8 to 10.6.7 using a TimeMachine backup and everything was stable again.

I thought it might just be a *glitch* with 10.6.8 and patiently waited for Lion. When Lion was released I decided to not take a chance upgrading my stable 10.6.7 and so I wiped 2 of the drives I had in a RAID array and installed a fresh copy of Lion which I downloaded from the App Store (if you want to know how to create a bootable Lion install from Apples Lion download leave a comment and I’ll post that soon). Even the fresh install of Lion was showing a random kernel panic every 5minutes to an hour and rebooting the system.

I thought it might be that 10.6.8 and Lion didn’t like the SSD drives that were still mounted even though they weren’t the boot drives. The MacPro 1,1 came with 4x drive sled bays for SATA hard drives but there were also another 2x hidden SATA ports on the motherboard that I connected the SSD drives to and mounted them in the spare optical bay. So I unplugged the SSD drives from the 2 hidden SATA ports and set about using 10.6.8 and Lion (each OS on a different RAID partition) but still both were rebooting because of a kernel panic.

I’ve opened up a report at http://bugreport.apple.com/ and they’ve requested my kernel crash logs which are in /Library/Logs/Diagnostic….

These from 10.6.8

This post will continue to get updated as and when there is a cause or solution found to my crashing.

3rd August 2011 – Have heard from others who have upgraded a MacPro 1,1 like me and running Lion without a problem. They all seem to have upgraded their graphics card to Apple’s ATI 5700 card so I ordered one of these from Apple today for a whopping £203 which should hopefully arrive tomorrow. Once installed I shall boot back into my fresh Lion installation for a few hours and see if there are any more crashes.

4th August 2011 –  I received  the new 5770 Apple upgrade kit and will set about installing this later on this evening and report back……..
…the 5770 was installed without a hitch and the MacPro booted up first time with no errors. I logged into my stable 10.6.7 and tinkered around playing 1080p videos full screen on my 30″ ACD and lots of GPU intensive tasks and it seemed much smoother at HD video playback etc. After a few hours I decided the card was working as it should so crossed my fingers and booted into my Lion installation. Again all seemed ok, nice smooth 1080p playback, I even tried some 4k video playback and it was smooth full screen. After about half an hour I thought maybe it was all stable so I thought I’d do a bit of housekeeping and repair any disk permission errors using Disk Utility. However, Disk Utility still refuses to verify or repair permissions of RAID arrays in Lion. There’s a lot of info on the Apple discussion forums about this so I opted to try verifying permissions from Terminal and it found some errors. So I then tried to repair those errors via terminal and left that running and went to bed. About 2 mins later I heard the tell-tale “boing” of the Apple start-up chime…it had crashed and rebooted whilst trying to repair permissions.

5th August 2011 – I went back to the machine this morning and sure enough I was presented with the log in screen as it had rebooted after a kernel panic. I logged in but there was no prompt to submit a crash report to Apple as there normally is and there is nothing logged in /Library/Logs/Diagnostic/ where the kernel panic reports normally live. So I can rule out my graphics card as the KP (Kernel Panic) happens with both original 7300GT and brand new Apple ATI 5770 cards. Time to start eliminating other items. Next on my hit list is RAM. I only have 7GB installed and it all seems ok when I’m booted in 10.6.7 and the Apple Hardware Test that comes on the OS X install CD returned no errors but for completeness I thought I’d run some extensive memory tests. I downloaded two programs Rember and Memtest, the former is a GUI for the latter. I tried running Rember from within OS X and it returned no errors but as some of the memory is not accessible whilst booted into the OS I installed Memtest and rebooted my computer into single user mode (hold down CMD+S when you reboot). Once in single user mode I typed

1
memtest all 2

to run memtest tests on all memory sectors twice. I’ve left that running and come to work but I’ll report back later if it found any errors. If there are no RAM errors I might take half the modules out anyway, boot Lion and see if it KPs and if it does swap with the other half of the RAM and see if that KPs. If it does it KPs with every single module then I doubt it’s a RAM issue. I’ll then look to install a non-RAID drive and install a fresh copy of Lion on that to see if the KP still happen on a non-RAID drive. I still think this is an Apple induced issue with 10.6.8 and Lion, I’m going to start looking into whether 64bit EFI might be to blame (the MacPro only has a 32bit EFI but 64bit capable processors).

Memtest completed two complete thorough RAM module checks and all passed without a fault so RAM ruled out.

19th August 2011 – Right I’m still getting KPs on my Lion test install and am sticking with 10.6.7 for now so I can keep working but I’ve now pretty much ruled out any hardware faults.

  • I bought a new ATI 5770 to replace my 7300GT and still KP.
  • I removed my SSD RAID array on the 5th and 6th SATA Ports and still KP.
  • I tried booting with only Lion HDDs in and removed the 2nd RAID array and still KP.
  • I bought another 8GB RAM and ran with just that in on its own and still get KP so RAM ruled out.
  • I ran fans at near full speed and COU core temps stayed below 40°C and still KP.
  • I ran fans at default speed and cranked my CPU usage to 100% for about 4 hours and no KP in LION so I doubt the CPUs are bad. Once I stopped the CPU stress test I opened Safari and browsed the web a little and it KP’d.
  • I’ve run with WiFi and Bluetooth disabled to see if those were a cause but still got KP. I might try removing them from the motherboard completely though just to check but they are genuine Apple modules.

I also tried tinkering around copying IOPCI kexts and IOPLatformFamily kexts and copying copies of these from a working 10.6.7 installation over the Lion versions but that didn’t work either.

Where does this leave me? Basically nowhere. I’m still buggered if I use 10.6.7 or 10.7.0 or 10.7.1 and get regular KPs. I’ve not managed to go more than 1 hour without a KP, except funnily enough when I was stress testing the CPU and it could happily sit there all day at 800% CPU usage. Having now bought another 8GB of RAM and run with just that in and the original 7GB removed I can rule out having bad RAM, plus the fact it works in 10.6.7 for days without a KP means it definitely software related.

I still haven’t got around to breaking apart one of my RAID arrays and trying to install Lion on just a single non-RAIDed drive. I do still think RAID could be part of the cause, since in Lion I still cannot verify or repair disk permissions on a RAID array using disk utility but I can using diskutil command in terminal but most of the time I get a KP about 90% through….suspicious. But then my hopes are dashed by people like @poo in the comments who has the same issue but doesn’t have any RAID arrays. But then again his problems may be something completely different.

For now I’m sticking with 10.6.7 and every so often trying Lion and some tweaks but having now spent £203 on an ATI 5770 and £180 on another 4GB RAM I’m reluctant to waste much more time or money on this and just hope Apple find a solution/cure soon?

1st September – I’m still running 10.6.7 and had no time to do any more experimenting to resolve my KPs but I have just had a reply from Apple Tech via bugreport.apple.com (some 6 weeks later) and they now need a complete Kernel Core Dump which I’ve never heard of before and they’ve included some complex instructions on how to setup a 2nd Mac running OS X as a Kernel Dump Server which has to be connected via ethernet to my MacPro and then modify the nvram of my MacPro so that all kernel dumps are sent to the IP address of the 2nd computer. That way they grab every single kernel instruction and upload that to them. The file could be up to 1GB in size so they’ve given me ftp details to upload the file. So it seems Apple are investigating this which is promising. I’ll update once I hear any more.

13th September – I eventually found time to copy clone the contents of 2 of my drives that were in a RAID array to my Mac Mini Server and pulled them out. I installed an old 80GB Seagate Barracuda drive in HDD Bay 3, booted into my good 10.6.7 and used Disk Utility to format it as HFS with a GUID partition. I then downloaded the latest Lion installation package (10.7.1) from the App store and installed that on the newly formatted drive. Once booted I ran the terminal commands as instructed by Apple Tech Support so that any crash logs will now be saved across the network to my Mac Mini Server and am currently waiting for a kernel panic. Sod’s law it won’t bloody KP now! I’ve unmounted the other remaining drives in the MacPro so that to all intents and purposes this is now just a MacPro with a single 80GB (non-raid) drive installed. Guess I’ll just have to keep playing in Lion to see if it’s become any more stable. NOTE – Disk Utility now lets me verify and repair permissions on the Lion disk which it didn’t before when I had Lion installed on a RAID array. Watch this space.

14th September – Dammit! After using it for several hours last night it seemed fine, went to bed, woke up and it had kernel panic in the night and rebooted, the crash log for submission to Apple mentioned “spinlock acquisition timed out” or similar I’ve seen that many now I don’t take much notice to them. I checked my MacMini Server which is meant to collect the core kernel dumps and there was nothing. Even though I had changed the nvram settings as per Apple’s request so my MacMini Server would collect all the core kernel dumps, I’d forgotten to restart the computer after making nvram changes. So I restarted again, and then forced a test kernel panic (if you want to read up more on how to setup a 2nd machine to collect your core kernel dumps read this) to check if the core dumps were now going through to my MacMini Server but they still weren’t. I’ve left a message with Apple tech for help on this matter but in the interim I’m going to try and setup a MacBook Pro as a dump server and see if that works. Anyway, we can rule out RAID as being the cause of any KPs. I know one or two commenters below said they get KP and don’t use RAID, not that I didn’t believe them, I just had to run through all my elimination processes. RAM replaced, new HDD (non-RAID), new 5770 Graphics card….erm I’m running out of replaceable hardware items that could be to blame. I really hope it is an Apple bug with 10.6.8 and Lion (10.7 and 10.7.1) and not faulty CPU. I’ve now accepted that I’m going to have to try eliminating the CPU in all this and need to roll back to stock CPUs. I’d like to get the CoreDump working properly first and submit them to Apple so that can hopefully see somthing that I can’t. Sorry to say this again, but watch this space…

NOTE – It is becoming more and more apparent that only people with upgraded CPU are suffering from kernel panics and crashes in Lion. From the comments below you will see people with X5355, X5365, E5345 etc. Did the MacPro 1,1 ever ship with 8-cores and if so what was the factory OEM 8-core CPU that it shipped with?

15th September – Right so I’ve not had a Kernel panic for nearly 2 days. What did I do to accomplish this, I wish I could say for sure. First things first, I tried setting up my MacMini Server to be a core kernel dump so when i did have a KP 1GB+ of crucial logs would be logged on there for me to upload to Apple. I had problems with this, if I tried to force a kernel panic by typing:

sudo dtrace -w -n “BEGIN{ panic();}”

at the command prompt it would begin connecting to my MacMini Server’s IP, correctly find it and retrieve it’s MAC address and then timeout trying to send the logs. After hours and hours trying to figure it out, including setting up a Macbook Air and Pro as a core dump server I finally figured out that by default the kernel dumps go out over ethernet EN0 which is ethernet port 1 and I had my cable plugged into EN1 (ethernet port 2). Once I switched ports and triggered a kp manually the core dumps were sent correctly to my remote machine. OK so all I needed now was to wait for it to kernel panic. Didn’t take long, mouse froze and then poof it rebooted without any kernel core dump going to my remote server. WTF! That didn’t work then. Normally I get a kernel panic screen or the terminal prompt scrolling across the top of my desktop image. Right I’ll just keep using it until I get a proper kernel panic I thought.

So carried on using it for a day with basic core apps, safari, chrome and that’s about it. No crashes. I left it playing full screen streaming HD from the NASA site all night to see if overheating GPU or similar could be the cause, nothing. Now here’s some things I did do

but I’m sure I’d done before.

  1. I had to update my flash when I went to NASA website I think so I downloaded latest Flash.
  2. I removed my ethernet port 2 from Network pane in System preferences and I mean removed not just turned off.
  3. I removed my Airport from Network pane in System preferences and I mean removed not just turned off. There have been others with iMacs reporting Airport cards causing KPs and to roll back kexts, since I’m hardwired to my TimeCapsule I just thought fuck it and removed it from the list.
  4. I normally have an Apple iSight camera connected to the Firewire port on my Apple 30″ cinema display, I have unplugged that.
  5. I normally have a USB multi-card reader connected to the USB ports on my 30″ ACD, I have disconnected that.

I’ve now been up for 1 day 22 hours. In that time I’ve setup two email accounts in Mail app and downloaded 30,000+ emails and I’ve installed iLife 11 and run software update to bring all the iLife apps up to date.

  • Thank you SO much for allowing me to keep my sanity. I have been struggling with kernel panics for the past week, and I did all kinds of my own "troubleshooting" (basically process of elimination) and was getting NOWHERE in a hurry. I must have typed at least 20 nasty comments that get sent to Apple with the bug reports during the course of all this, because it's ridiculous that they haven't fixed this issue yet.
    All I can say is thanks to all of you, I'm SAFELY at 10.6.7 right now, and my computer has been up for a solid 12 hours now without a single glitch. The only thing that I lost (for the time being) is my iPhoto library, because apparently I have to be at 10.6.8 in order to run whatever version my library was updated to at the time. It's a bummer, but I'd rather have a functioning computer right now!
    For the record, or whatever it's worth to others, here is my setup:

    MacPro1,1
    2 x 2.66Ghz quad core processors
    12 gigs of RAM
    MP11.005C.B08 Boot ROM version

    I have a RocketRAID 2314 card
    2 SANS Digital TR8M-B
    16 Seagate 1.5 TB ST31500341AS 7200RPM drives
    NVidia GeForce 8800 GT

    So you can see I had a lot of things I was troubleshooting. hehehe I took everything apart, blew the dust out, reseated things. It was a mess!

    Now maybe if the Netkas forum dudes would approve me for their website, I could download that altered firmware and maybe get myself back to Lion, or at the very least, 10.6.8. But again, I'm just happy to have a stable system.

    Thanks again!

  • UPDATE:

    Well, someone on this forum was kind enough to send me the firmware. I read it closely and carefully, and to be honest, was a big leery of doing it since I knew at this moment I had a very stable environment, and I was thinking I should just leave well-enough alone.
    My curiosity got the best of me, and I just performed the firmware upgrade. It worked perfectly, and while I haven't moved up to 10.6.8 OR Lion at this point, I know the firmware did something, because where I used to see "2.66 Unknown" for the Processors inside the System Profiler, I now see "2.66 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Xeon". I'm VERY happy that there are such intelligent people out there that can make magic happen for us! Thanks again to everyone who helped get this issue resolved before Apple helped us. I think I'm still going to wait a little while longer before I run my upgrade path, because I need a stable work environment this week, but look out next weekend! hehee

    Take care!

  • I've just upgraded my Mac Pro 1,1 with 2xE5345 Xeons, and thanks to the information on this blog, and on the Netkas forums, my system is running totally fine.

    I first upgraded my boot rom to the 2,1 version, then replaced the CPUs. I did some stress tests on my system with 10.6.8, and then upgraded to 10.7.1.

    My machine has been running totally fine for about a week now, and I've done loads of media encoding with x264encoder, as well as spending a lot of time playing Arkham Asylum (which is superb).

    I've also upgraded my graphics card from an X1900 to a Radeon 5770, thanks to the BIOS mod information from Netkas. This made a huge improvement. Almost as worthwhile as upgrading the processors.

    One important thing to remember is using the correct procedure for applying the heat sink compound when replacing the CPUs. Check out: http://www.arcticsilver.com/pdf/appmeth/int/hl/intel_app_method_horizontal_line_v1.1.pdf

    for more information.

  • I guess with over a month and no one writing anything that their computers have been running strong since the firmware update. I'm tapping my toe with for netkas to approve me so I can download this. I'm really curious, no problems?

  • I'm also waiting for approval from netkas for a long time. I upgraded processors to x5345 and have KP often.

    Is anyone willing to share utility 1.1 to 2.1?

    Thanks

  • I have upgraded the CPUs in my MacPro 1,1 to X5355, had no problems at all in Leopard, and after updating to Lion after 1 month I had a first KP, so what is the solution for me?

    to use Mac Pro 2006-2007 Firmware Tool to go to 2,1?

    thanks, I will read all the posts if I had another KP.

  • After 6 months trouble free with my MacPro 1.1 upgded to 2.1 and 2x Xeon x5365 (super procs) i moved to 10.6.8 form my former snow leo version and 1 month later first kernel panic (after a sleep). In more than 6 years of use of this machine it's probably the first time i see something like that happen ...

    So i do onot think that moving from 1.1 to 2.1 will solve the issue but who knows ?

    Tell us if you found a solution to this.

  • Hi All

    I have just installed two e5435s in a 1,1 MacPro also has a ati HD4650 due to the failure of the expen$ive 8800 Mac$ Nvidia.

    I was wondering...

    a. what is the benefit of going 2,1 upgrade of EFI and how do i do that.
    b. is there a way under Lion 10.7.3 to get it to recognize CPU as 8 cores (now only shows one as compared with previous 4)

    thanks

  • This issue might only be affecting Intel processors that were not used in production Macs.

    I'm having the same problem in Lion with a pair of E5350 processors, going to install 10.6.7 and see if things stabilize.

  • I am not sure this will help but on my Hackintosh DX58SO with XeonW3530 identified as MacPro4,1 I have been abble to remove KP occuring at boot process.

    From me the main difference is 10.6.7 doesn't have trim function this is why you don't have issues with that release.

    Let me explain I added in my rig a PCIe Sata3 card with Sata3 compatible SSD's and started to have KP's like yours
    (with exactly the same logs as yours).

    I only have add KP's with 10.6.8 on 10.7.5 and 10.8.2 no KP's at all.

    When I disabled trim functionality (you can do that patching IOBlockStorage kext) I don't get any KP on 10.6.8.

    Now after updating to the latest SSD's firmware 10.6.8 is working fine also.
