Good morning, I bought and intel celeron nuc
Put a 24gb msata, 2gb ram and a wireless card in it
fired it up, put linux mint 16 cinnamon as my OS and xbmc.
Worked great for a day then while installing a repository it black screened and froze.

After I rebooted it says "kernel panic not syncing attempted to kill init"

I have tried to just boot from live usb but also does not work.

I am not very tech savy but is there a way to wipe the system through bios? I also tried to boot ubuntu from usb with the same fail.
I can enter grub command but that's it.

I am not sure what to do from here....Please help

Thank you for your time

No expert, but the fact you can't boot from USB either suggests a hardware fault. The kernel panic is the result, not the symptom, so error messages prior to that might give you a clue.

I've your savvy enough, open it, check the connections, take a stick of RAM out, disconnect the drive and boot from USB, etc.

That is kind of what I was thinking...I did take out the SSD and tried boot from the flash drive with same result.
I will try the ram next

1. Has nothing to do with PVR help and support.

2. Has nothing to do with XBMC.

3. The attachments on linuxquestions.org require login.

4. It seems you haven't tried the very first advice someone gave you (change the RAM).
