I posted this in the OSX board, but since it's also about 9.2 i figured I could post it here becuase it's really important that it gets fixed!!!

OSX was getting sluggish, so i reinstalled 10.1 to my 10 partition; so it reinstalled it and I restarted my computer, the screen went throught the OSX starting up, but then just sat there. I restarted and nothing, i saw the little colour wheel in the top corner, and the smiley in the middle, but then nothing.
I got a restore CD from down the hall (i gave mine to my aunt grrr)
I tried to boot from the CD, it goes to OS 9.1 and just sits there at STARTING UP, the bar not even 1/3 over
I zapped the PRAM, and it apparently reset it back to 9.2 when trying to restart same thing happens as if there is a CD there, nothing, it just hangs, and after awhile the wheel turns into a little bomb. I then tried to turn off the extensions, same thing happened
I then tried to boot into OSX off the disc, again NOTHING.
i atleast need to get back to my 9.2 so i can save the things on my X partition, and i will wipe it clean, and restart over, but someone help me get this thing up and running again PLEASE!
<How did I got loged out?>

If that does not work then...

If nothing like that works!
If you have FireWire Target Mode Mac then try puting it in Firewire Target Mode and use a different computer to mount the disk.
From their reformat it. (Only if nothing else works!!!)

Other then that I don't know.

Good luck
