What are the messages before this? This is most likely a hardware problem (as its calling an interrupt while handling an interrupt) or a bad driver.

Qzukk is right. I had once a similar problem. Try unplugging any USB devices, as scanner and joypads and see if you can boot (my problem was the scanner once).
