Unhappy Memory Allocation Error at boot up after 10.6.7 update - 05-11-2011, 07:36 AM

Hi, I've had 10.6.4 running perfectly on my mini 9 for a few months. Yesterday I tried to update to 10.6.7. The first boot up after the update was ok, then I started not being able to boot up after that. I kept getting Memory Allocation Errors and that's where it ends.

I thought of reinstalling OSX but the mini will not boot up from a USB drive even though I queued it first up in the BIOS. It won't respond to a Windows installation on a USB either. I tried enabling and disabling USB legacy in the BIOS but nothing seems to work.

Please help me somebody...I've spent so many hours searching Google and this site, but can't find anything useful...

Here's a video of the boot up:

Please, please give me some instructions so I can restore this mini to either OSX or Windows....
