    I have a MacBook Pro 2006 model. I think the boot file is corupt and I have tried the recovery but stops and say boot file corupt reinstall. I have Lion on it and when I go into the recovery screen it says the disc is locked. My problem is my DVDrom is dying and will not take disc. How can I boot and reinstall Lion from an external USB CD/DVD rom? Also how do external DVD create a Lion recovery drive or USB recovery LION drive. Or please send any other advice, I don't want to do a full install and lose my data.
