Since you already have 10.6 running, just download an updated NBI (I used this one (http://www.meklort.com/?p=262) for my 10.6->10.6.7 update) and run it. Then you can either use the combo updater...

Run NBI_20100616212351 and install the Chameleon bootloader. Then it can boot into OSX without the USB drive.

Ah, I guess I can backup/erase/restore in order to get rid of the sluggishness.

Do you have a link to any of those secure erase utilities that would work on a STEC?
