    I installed Parallels 3.0 on 19 August. In the year and a half before installing 3.0 I had a total of 5 kernel panics on this machine. In the week and a half since installing 3.0 I've had 10. I've tried builds 4560, 5060, and 5122; I ran 3188 without problems. Parallels causes a kernel panic reproducibly (100% of the time) on shutting down the VM. But I'm also seeing random panics, even when not running Parallels (note that the Parallels drivers (kexts) run all the time). The stack traces are variable; often they involve the apple NTFS driver (see http://forums.parallels.com/thread15507.html for trace). This is very frustrating.

    I should note that this is on a Macbook Pro Core Duo 2Ghz with 2GB of RAM and 10.4.10; I
    've allocated 500-750 MB to the Windows VM. I've run Apple Hardware Test (including the extended test) with no problems. -c

    Not so much.

    Immediately after performing the above procedure, even before Parallels had completed booting Windows XP SP2, I got the following kernel panic, my 11th in the week and half since installing Parallels 3.0.

    -c

    panic(cpu 0 caller 0x001A4A55): Unresolved kernel trap (CPU 0, Type 14=page fault), registers:

    My kernel panic = memory problem

    Hello,

    I cannot say if this is the same problem, but all of my memory panic issues were solved by replacing memory. Parallels caused kernel panic after I upgraded memory to 3Gb. I have not reall had Mac crash while Parallels were nto running, so I suspected the software... But then I got free memtest, booted in single user mode and run memtest. Some tests failed. Got replacement memory from cdw and swapped. Memtest did not fail and I have yet to see kernel panic... It's month later BTW...

    Memtest is free, may take little bit of time, but will provide robust test on memory...
