Hi,
My MacBook Pro has been acting up a little. I tried the usual repair options: repair permissions, zap P-ram, and Safe Boot (although I've never gotten the machine to Safe Boot properly since installing Lion). I ran Verify Disk and it stopped part way through, saying that the HD is corrupt. It instructed me to start up from the (installation?) disk and run the repair function from the disk utility. (I've included a screen shot of the Verify Disk screen). I have no idea how to go about this without a physical start up disk (Lion). I do have the disks that came with the computer at the time of purchase (Will one of those work?).
Thanks,
JGW

Thank you!
I was able to access the recovery function and used the Disk Utility to repair my HD.
Would you recommend that I still re-install Lion?
Again, thank you for taking the time to help me!
Best wishes,

Lion "Verify Disk Permissions" and "Repair Disk Permissions" grayed out

Please help!Repair using Disk Utility was OK on the volumes, but Repair for the drive was grayed out. That's very odd.  Is your drive G.U.I.D? Boot into Safe Mode (Hold Shift-Key), then boot normally.Read other 10 answers[More]
