Default Sierra Install Gone Bad - need help [solved]

Hey folks.

I tried to install Sierra and it crashes when I boot (constantly loops through a kernel panic). I want to be able to boot from my backup drive (proof that one always needs a backup) but I cant even boot in safe mode.

Is there a procedure that will allow me to select the backup disk to boot off of?

Thanks

Carl

Thanks. I was able to boot with recovery tools - command R and am restoring from backup.

Thanks for your quick reply.
