This is actually somewhat off-topic on this list but OS X is in great part
FreeBSD so I'll try to point you in the right direction:

Darwin is the OS version. Given the version you specify is OS X and not Mac
OS which existed up to OS 9. Starting with OS X Apple started using a
version of NextStep which was in turn based on a FreeBSD template and the
Mach kernel.

You would need to provide exact model. Some architectures are no longer
supported. How do you know you have 10.8 on a 2006 Mac. Up to 2006 OS X
only ran on Power PC models of the Mac.

Maybe you can take a picture of the blue screen and post it somewhere and
provide a link to it here (please do not attach the picture),

Best,
Alex
