Default NBI 0.8.4RC1 + 10.6.3 Update = Endless rebooting - 04-04-2010, 08:51 AM

I tried to upgrade from 10.6 to 10.6.3 and followed the directions posted here: **OFFICIAL** Mac OSX 10.6.3 Update Thread

When I boot it just goes into an endless rebooting cycle. No kernel panic screen. I can't even boot into safe mode. Please help. Thx.

After months of happy hackintoshing I made the mistake of running the latest Netbook Installer app from the Applications and ticking enable hiberate.

After rebooting I'm in the infinite reboot loop. Entering -x, -v or -s doesn't achieve anything, and I can't see what the message is before it reboots.

Is there anyway back? I've got a usb dvd drive so I could burn the latest netbook installer, or I could boot from a USB NBI image. Would I be able to save my system?

Just incase anyone else has had the problem:

I've had a working hackintosh for months now, but I made a change using the netbookinstaller app and now i'm getting:

enabling ramdisk....
no preboot ramdisk, not loading postboot ramdisk
efi_inject_get_devprop_string NULL trying stringdata

and the endless reboot continues.. I'm having to run MeGoo from USB as a fallback but don't have wifi
