My buddy just did the same thing, and unfortunately he lives 8 hours away!

How can you re-run the latest version of NBI if you can't boot into the system?

Is there any way to recover from this?

I did something like this the other day trying to go upto 10.6.6 using 0.8.5pre NBI and it messed up my boot majorly. I use an external cd/dvd drive and I ran Netbook CD (NCD). It's just like NBM, but you put it onto a cd/dvd to boot from. Did you originally boot from a usb? If so I presume you don't have it still or the info on it is gone? I got my NCD from DrewMech if that helps...
