comment How long can I safely leave my Macbook Pro running?
Are Minis actually that different from MacBook Pros? They always seemed to be using more or less the same components, but in a smaller package without the keyboard and display.

Thanks, this was the problem. I don't know how or why journaling was disabled, but I enabled it and now the Mac boots normally. Thanks!

As far as I know the RAM in this Mac is not user upgradeable. In any case it has never been touched. Wouldn't a bad logic board issue be likely to manifest itself at other times, instead of solely when booting?

Yes, they all show the same last kext loaded. Given the nature of the error, it may be worth mentioning that Disk Utility seems to think everything is fine.
