A bit more info. needed please:
How did you format the SDHC card(s) (eg. did you use the SDA's formatting tool)?
What brand, type, size of SD card?
Did you use a "built-in" or external (USB stick-like) card reader/writer?
Which version of NOOBS?
How far did NOOBS get before the (above) "kernel panic" occurred? (Although the monitor photo's shown here: http://www.cpmspectrepi.webspace.virgin ... n_progress show an older version of NOOBS [1.2.1] they are similar to what you would see once the current version NOOBS has booted - I'm "in the process" of updating my webpages)

Did you extract the files from the zip file as explained in the quick start guide?

Hi,

I exactly followed the noobs installation guide.
I formated with the SD format and set all Flags like demanded in the guide.
Then i extracted and copied the zip file content on the card, as explained in the guide.
The CardWriter is an internal Desktop Cardreader/writer which is at least just connected to USB.
Since there is booting "something" i assume the card is readable?!
Noobs version 1.3 latest.

I tried an intenso 16GB Class10, a Transcend Class 6 16GB and a takeMS 4GB Class 4 Card.
I also tried to install the raspbian image with win32diskimager with the same result.

Before the shown console appears, there is only this colored boot picture, after this console is shown and thats it. No gui!

O.K.
1) "The CardWriter is an internal Desktop Cardreader/writer which is at least just connected to USB" Am I correct in taking that to mean that you're using a "desktop" machine with a card reader/writer fitted into a spare "HDD slot"? (If so, that should be equivalent to using a USB card/reader writer on a netbook/laptop rather than a "built-in" SD slot. The latter, on older portables, may not be fully SDHC compatible).
2) Apart from "Transcend", your card makes appear to be of "less common" brands (cf. those logged in http://elinux.org/RPi_SD_cards), and issues have been reported w.r.t. some Transcend cards in the past.
3) W.r.t. "partial booting" and NOOBS 1.3 - there is a known issue with Sandisk Ultra cards, now fixed, and there is a newer version (NOOBS 1.3.1) which can be found here: http://downloads.raspberrypi.org/NOOBS/test/ . If you haven't tried that (yet) it may help @rdb & co. (the NOOBS developers) if you do so and report back.
