Crash/ boot loop after ram upgrade
I recently upgraded to 64GB ram on my 2018 Mac mini. After the install, everything booted up and worked great.
Could see the new ram cards displayed in the about this Mac section, so I thought everything was great.
However, I’ve been experiencing persistent system crashes and forced reboots, which usually result in a boot loop that doesn’t resolve itself. I’ve tried booting in various modes. Resetting PRAM. All the usual steps for a Mac with booting issues. There is a noticeable “whooshing” noise associated with these crashes and boot loops when the system tries to reset. In my standard workflow, the system would freeze and then reboot into an endless loop. It’s intermittently happening, and I unplug all cables and wait for the unibody to cool down. Sometimes it works, and sometimes it doesn’t. The only thing I haven’t done is reinstall the stock ram cards.
Could this be a symptom of the system overheating? I may look into additional cooling options, but all my research told me these ram cards were compatible with my Mac and now i’m over here scratching my head after a purchase that I thought would improve my workflow. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
