    Hi,
    I am experiencing issues after Lion Recovery update started yesterday.
    At the end of the unexpected long duration regarding this update, my MacBook was not able to restart automatically.
    It looks like my HD needs now to be repaired as proposed by Disk Utility feature (After CMD+R restart mode).
    Did you encounter similar issue recently, please?
    Thanks in advance for any guidance in order to restart properly my MacBook,
    Regards,

    :confused:

    The download did take a long time, but, other than that, I haven't experienced the problems you report. If Disk Utility wants to repair your disk, I would let it, but it would be or at least have been great if you had a proper backup in place before either updating or doing the repair procedure.

    ! Serious Problem encountered after os Lion Recovery Update

    Thanks Peter for your reply,
    What about your experience is repairing the HD disk?
    Verify Disk shows me: incorrect block count for file live.4.indexPositions in checking catalog file
    Does it work well? I mean Repair Disk. What are the risks to do that?

    I began using Mac computers in 2004. Ever since, I've only had to repair HFS(+/J) disk structures twice, and both times Disk Utility worked very well, as I didn't lose any files. It should work for you, but you can never tell in such cases. Using a reliable backup programme, such as SuperDuper!, is definitely worth it. In case disaster strikes, you can always rely on your latest backup and easily reinstall your system and personal files, if needed, to a brand-new disk.
