Unable to find driver for this platform?
I've owned this computer for over 3 years with 0 issues, and just recently received:
panic(cpu 0 caller 0x563ebd): "Unable to find driver for this platform: \"ACPI\".\n"@/SourceCache/xnu/xnu-1504.15.3/iokit/Kernel/IOPlatformExpert.cpp:1387
The computer will not boot, gives me the startup tone, then the apple, then this stack trace and error message on a gray screen.
I reformatted the drive, did a clean install of Snow Leopard (without the original install disk, as I didn't have one handy at the time). The computer worked rock solid for about a week then gave me the exact same error message.
It seems to me like a hardware issue, and I have noticed the headphone jack acting up here and there, cutting out when plugged in, removing volume control until fiddled with.. but unless something is electrically shorting out, it shouldn't cause anything of this nature right? I did remove an EFI program called rEFIt recently, though I did so on 2 machines running the same backup image and the other one (early 2011 mbp) has no issues at all so far. (fingers crossed)
Does anyone have an insight as to what this specific error message indicates? Thanks in advance!
Is this a good question?
