Default 10.6.0 - 10.6.6 - no sound, now boot freezes - 04-05-2011, 09:20 PM

I managed to do a simple 10.6 install on my mini 10v (using NBI 0.8.4 RC1) and it worked a charm - so rather foolishly I did an update to 10.6.6 by:

running NBI (...351) version
apple software update (deselecting all but the combo update)
long delays, then everything OK except sound
re-ran NBI 351
still no sound
ran 0.8.4RC1

now the machine hangs on the apple screen and doesn't boot.

I saw mentions of a 'recovery' command that has to be entered, how do I do that? I should say that i'm in hospital for the next three days and don't have my original install material to hand....

thanks in advance!

FIXED - i read the 10.6.6 problems thread and sorted it.

booted off the NBI 0.8.4RC1 usb key I had
once the machine had booted, ran the ...351 NBI
rebooted (no sound)
rebooted again


I'm delighted - thanks!
