What happens when you try to boot e.g. SystemRescueCD?
If it is what I think it is (see below) then that should start bombing

If the SystemRescue method does not work then you have either
an overheating/dying CPU or - more likely - bad memory.
Another - probably unlikely, but not impossible - option would be to
delete the swap file, if you have one. I've seen some super-strange
things with corrupt or incorrectly created swap *even if it isn't
heavily used*, right after boot. E.g. if your swapfile was fallocated
instead of dd'ed and lives on ext4 or XFS, you *must* use the -z option
to pre-touch all extents.
Or maybe it's the ghost of ZFS, if that's patched in as well.. :-)
