    My internal HD crashed on my iMac running Lion, and to recover I've done the following, similar for the external job described in posts here, like one above.

    - Boot from Installation CD
    - Go to Disk Utility
    - Run First Aid - Repair disk - on the HD
    - Erase HD
    - Partition HD
    - Restore from Time Machine backup (which I have)

    However on the 3rd step above, utility is stuck in "Verifying...." step. Any recourse I can take to get past step 3?

    Thanks!

    The truth hurts. And that's probably the truth, and it hurts.
