    My mom closed my MacBook Pro (10.7) in the middle of a repair disk. How can I fix this? I don't have access to the computer yet.

    My guess is you should be able to restart the process of repairing it. And keep it away from your mom until it's done!

    I don't have access to this for over 2 months. Will I be able to boot to recovery if it runs out of battery? :confused:

    Sure. Just plug it in and let it charge a bit, then you can boot it up.

    What I'm scared of is that the hard drive is now corrupted and that I will not be able to boot from it after I get home. Is this a possibility?

    Even if the drive were, the Recovery Partition should be fine. I wouldn't worry at all. Also, don't you have a backup?

    Yes but it might be a little old. I do know I can use Target Disk Mode if my HDD can be read.
