I'm getting kernel panics on a 2013 iMac with the latest OS 10.13 (High Sierra) installed.

All the loaded kexts in the log are from Apple.

I've determined it's a software problem, as I tried restoring a time-machine backup of the machine to another iMac, and that iMac still gets kernel panics.


This is what the log looks like:
