Default dell 10v failed update :( - 01-22-2015, 03:50 PM

My triple boot 10v has been fine for some years now.
I decided to update from 10.6.4 to 10.6.6 - need by some software i was about to test.

I ran netbook installer and then ran the downloaded update.

Now it boots to the intro screen with the three icons Ubuntu, XP , OS_X.

But when I select OS_X the Apple logo shows for a second or two and then it reboots !

Cannot remember how to process this situation,

Can I type on boot up to a recovery option ?

I can boot with an NBI USB drive into OSX and have no problem navigating around in that environment, but obviously requiring the usb to boot up is not ideal.

How can I fix it from within OSX ?
Is there anyway to reverse the failed update ?

I'm going to go ahead and reinstall from the ground up.
It looks like update to 10.6.6 is just a bridge too far.
