    I restarted my 2009 i7 MacBook pro because it wanted to clear the ram. First time since installing Lion. It has the os on an intel ssd and the data on an hd. No DVD drive.

    I get a gray apple, then a meter bar below it that stops about 20% through and then shuts down.

    Help!!!!! :(

    I just opened the recovery partition and checked my disk. It says it can't repair it. How could this be? There was nothing wrong with my system, I just rebooted it. I don't want to wipe it since i haven't backed up in a couple weeks.

    broke down and restored from 7/10.

    Works now. The only thing I can think is I ran the TRIM Enabler on Lion to turn it back on. DO NOT DO THIS. I believe it's the reason it corrupted.

    Lion wont boot

    Same Problem here. Apple support suggested to re-install Lion from recovery partition. This led me to a starting screen with my user accounts and i could log in. But than it hangs after showing the desktop.
    Reboot than takes me back to grey screen.

    Disk repair shows nothing.

    Any ideas?

    if you enabled TRIM support, I believe that is the issue. Otherwise I'm not sure.

    Try rebooting in safe boot. Restart holding the left Shift key. If you see a progress bar, let go. If you don't hold option to boot to the startup manager, select the Macintosh HD, then press Shift. Unlike earlier versions of OS X there is no indication you are in Safe Boot at login, other than no application windows being open. If you can login in Safe Boot, check your login items in the Users & Groups preference pane, your /Library/LaunchAgents, /Library/LaunchDaemons, and /Library/StartupItems for any potentially incompatible software.
