The laptop logo with the X on it was NBI finishing the update and making it so your mini would boot. This can take as long as 25 minutes on some mini 10v's. By doing a hard re-boot you interrupted the process before it finished.
You can use the method in the first post of this thread to boot into recovery mode-
**OFFICIAL** Mac OS X 10.6.4 Update Thread
I disregard the time estimates whenever installing updates, it will take as long as it takes for them to complete. I just let them go. Going from 10.6.2 to 10.6.6 using the combo-update does take quite a while to finish.

So I am trying to get the whole install from scratch again using NetbookInstaller 2: USB Mac Installation via Any Operating System | Guides | OS X | mechdrew
I created the 2 usb drives, but even if it boots from usb it says cant find kernel (damn you apple)
So I installed parted magic linux on a usb and formated hfs+ partitions
still same error! - The final screen that I see if I try to boot from usbs is
Memory allocation error 0x10367090, 0x6dff0000
with Mac OS X Install DVD icon
looks like the boot record on the lappy is messing with it.
I just want to reinstall the whole thing
at least what I am trying to do right now, is to install dos/windoz/linux to install in the mini so that there is some other os on hdd then mac
