Default System Drive corrupt - Can\'t upgrade to OS X 10.4

Need some advice here. Have been to busy to upgrade to PT 7 - been living in 10.3.8 land because it was stable and I was too booked to upgrade.

Had some time this weekend to upgrade and found out that my system drive is corrupt. 10.4 won't install and running disk utility from the install disk won't fix the errors (permissions are corrected).

I've not run into this before in previous upgrades and would appreciate some advice. My guess as to what the options might be:

1. Wipe it clean - we have the technology, we can rebuild him.

2. Create a disk image backup of the system drive on an external FW drive. Format the system drive and restore the disk image. Would this screw with the pace or ilok validations? If so, then I might as well go back to #1

3. Try Disk Warrior - haven't needed it so I don't have it. Wouldn't mind spending 80 bucks, but if it's best to just start over, why bother.

Perhaps there is a better way, or something that I am missing. I don't look forward to a total reinstall, but if that is the best way then I'd rather not try a shortcut. I guess 2 years without a reinstall is pretty good considering all the OS and PT upgrades in that time.

Words of experienced wisdom would be greatly appreciated!
