As Dennis said, MCA (Machine Check Abort) usually means a hardware problem somewhere - I don't think anyone on the forums here is going to decode a full crash dump for you (but I guess you never know!), you'll need to get a call logged with HP support for that. They have experts, who in my experience will pinpoint the issue fairly quickly for most panics.

 

And if you don't have a support contract? Well, now you know why you need one...

Good Morning,

 

I'm only following my nose here, and make no claim to read registers, etc.  However, crashinfo.txt contains the following.

 

=======================================
  = Global Error Counters / kmem_writes =
  =======================================

scsi_bioerrors                    = 15
scsi_bioerrors_logged             = 0
scsi_async_write_bioerrors        = 0
scsi_async_write_bioerrors_logged = 0
sd_strategy_bioerrors             = 3
sd_strategy_async_write_bioerrors = 0
sd_epowerf_bioerrors              = 0
sd_epowerf_async_write_bioerrors  = 0

Note: There are scsi_bioerrors !
Please contact HP support referencing CRASHINFO_NOTE_SCSI1.

 

This confirms the likelihood of a hardware problem that other respondents have noted.  Best of luck!

crashinfo is a hp support tool. The right place to interpret it is hp support.

 

At the beginning of crashinfo output you have:
