Default mini 9 won't boot - 06-25-2010, 06:21 PM

My daughter's mini 9 won't boot even though it has been in constant use for months. It is running SL 10.6.3 with the most recent NBI. If I boot from my usb install stick, recovery=y gets me into the splash star wars screen with an endlessly spinning color wheel in the upper left hand corner. If I boot as a single user, I get to the root prompt. I have tried rm -rf AppleIntelCPUPowerManagement.kept and ATI* and a bunch of other things I found in the 10.6.4 update thread. I have tried going to applications and then invoking sudo open and I get an abort trap. I do not really know what this is.

I cannot get into the mini 9 to wipe the ssd clean and start over.
