I had to restore my iMac back to it's factory settings. I put the OS Disk in, and went into Disk Utility, and erased my Macintosh HD. After I did that, by user error (did it for I made a mistake), I clicked on Repair Disk. I then re-installed OS X.

Could I have done any damage to the HD by clicking on Repair Disk after I erased it? After the OS loaded, I clicked on Verify Disk and it checked out fine. The iMac seems to be working well, except for an occasional hiccup in Safari.

No damage whatsoever would have occurred, especially if repair disk completed OK
