OK, so Disk Utility has it formatted as Mac OS Extended, and it's still giving you Kernel Panics? Ooch, did you make sure that there is not a jumper on the drive when there shouldn't be one, PRAM reset, even a Logic Board Reset? Just trying to figure out everything you have tried here, and what others said

And let's see here. Apple said it was the hard drive, Samsung said it was the Firmware. Well, here is something. What happens when you format it standard? Does it atleast let you boot into the CD? How about FAT32(Windows)? What happens when you break the hard drive into two partitions?
