OS X V10.7 :: Create Lion Recovery Boot Usb WITHOUT Partition?

Mar 22, 2012

I give up. I can't find the answer to this. So, I'll just ask and hope.I have a mid-2011 mini that was upgraded to Lion. However, it had a Bootcamp partition running Windows 7.Apparently, whoever upgraded my machine didn't create a recovery boot disk before upgrading.So, I have no recovery partition and apparently no ability to create a recovery boot usb without one.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create Lion Recovery Media Without Internet?

Mar 30, 2012

I have not been able to connect to the AppStore. My internet connection may be too slow or there is some other problem. The Apple helpdesk is less than helpful. They do not assist with connection problems. Result: No AppStore for me. So How do I upgrade to Lion? (The problem started when the Lion USB stick was not yet available) One possible solution is to buy a new MacBook. I may have to, because the one I am using is falling apart. 

So, suppose I have this brand new MacBook and no connection to the AppStore. Is there a way to create a recovery DVD or USB stick from the new MacBook, without buying the official USB stick? 

All articles about Lion recovery assume that you have an internet connection. I have news: not every internet connection counts as an internet connection as far as Apple is concerned. Funny thing is, that all updates to Leopard and Snow Leopard went without problems.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Is Recovery Disk Also Updated To 10.7.4

May 11, 2012

I would be interested to know if updating, for example, Lion 10.7.2 to 10.7.3, or 10.7.3 to 10.7.4, also updates the System on the Lion Recovery Disk. 

I thought I could find out by booting on the Recovery Disk, but there's no "About this Mac" item in this System's Apple menu.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Recovery Disk Assistant Won't Run?

Jun 22, 2012

I have a MBP mid-2010, originally with Snow Leopard, but long since running Lion (currently the latest release, 10.7.4). When I installed Lion, I created a recovery partition on the MBP's boot disk. This was about 9 months ago. I now want to run Recovery Disk Assistant to create a recovery partition on an external disk, but when I start Recovery Disk Assistant it says: "Lion recovery could not be created"... because the recovery HD on this computer is damaged or not present...etc. 

However, if I open a Terminal and run "Diskutil list", I see: 

[Code]....

So, the recovery partition appears to be there. I presume Recovery Disk Assistant thinks it's damanged. However, I can hold down Alt/Option when booting my MBP and I see the recovery partition. I can even boot from the recovery partition and everything works as expected. 

Info:
MacBook Pro, mid-2010 MBP running Mac OS 10.7.4

OS X V10.7 Lion :: How To Stop Recovery Disk Assistant From Downloading

Apr 22, 2012

Since I planned to upgrade the stock disk on my macbook pro I created a USB stick backup of the Lion OS using Lion recovery disk assistant. It built a bootable copy of my Lion OS. I replaced the drive, booted from the USB stick Lion, formatted the new drive with disk utility with one OSX partition, and bunch of Linux partitions for the planned dual/triple/etc. boot.  I then used the recovery disk menu to reinstall OSX on the new disk. It took off and started the download just like while booting with R key or from the recovery partition AGAIN!.  This is a 2 hour proposition and is totally ridiculous. I need to be able to reinstall without downloading Lion every time. how to stop this new Apple invention from doing this download?

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Disk Utility Restore Put Recovery Hd Over Mac Hd After First Properly Copying Mac Hd?

Apr 4, 2012

I am trying to make a redundant backup image of my harddrive using something OTHER than Time Machine.  I booted to recovery because you image from a disk you are booted from.  The restore took 2 hours, and indicated the entire time in disk utility that it was restoring "Mac HD" to a similarly sized partition on my external hard drive.  When it was done, the external had a copy of my recovery drive on it.  That's crazy talk.

OS X V10.7 Lion :: Create Single-disk Concatenated RAID?

Jul 5, 2012

I have a Mac Mini that I plan to use as a simple file server with a 2TB external disk.  I would like to be able to add future external disks to grow the original 2TB volume I create to 4TB, 6TB, etc. using RAID. 

I know it is possible to add disks to a concatenated RAID set without destroying the data on the disks already in the set, but I cannot get Disk Utility to let me create a single-disk concatenated RAID set.

OS X Mavericks :: MacBook Pro Only Turns On In Recovery - Disk Utility Can't Repair Disk

Sep 12, 2014

Macbook Pro running on OSX Mavericks is having problems. 

Today I turned my Mac on, and it started up with a loading wheel and a loading bar. When the loading bar finished, the Mac turned itself off. I tried many times, same happened every time. I then went into OSX Recovery, started repairing Macintosh HD, but the error message saying "Disk Utility can't repair Macintosh HD" came up and now I don't now what to do. 

Is there any way I can back up my files in this situation? Is there any way I can repair the disk without having to erase all data and reinstalling OSX? Or do I really need to bring it to a Apple Store for repair?

MacBook Pro, OS X Mavericks (10.9.4)

OS X :: Hard Disk Drive Data Recovery

Jul 18, 2009

first off, long time MacRumors reader, finally joined the forum now in search of some aid.There are some other threads on a similar topic I know, but I was hoping for some So, the Hard drive in question is a Western Digital 5400rpm 320gig purchased from Amazon about 8 months ago, now the Hard drive has decided to die. I saw some early signs, but did not realise that the drive was in that bad of a condition at the time. Now, when attempting to boot into Mac OS X I get stuck at the Apple logo, with the little wheel spinning infinitely. I had a boot camp partition which worked, but could not help me and is no longer an option either. I tried using the Leopard boot disk, but Disk utility didnt do anything for me in terms of recovery or repair, I attempted to use the terminal to make an Image of the drive on an external, but it fails about 10% through, I'm assuming from corrupted data.
