    Hello and welcome.

    That is a kernel panic, which can be caused be numerous software/hardware issues, including corrupted OS install, incompatible software loading at startup, failing hard drive/RAM/logic board, etc.

    Try safe mode if your Mac doesn‘t finish starting up

    Try that and let us know if it fully starts up.
