    I have a macbook and OS 10.6. Need to repair disc. Restarted the machine while booting with installer disc [ pressing 'C' while restart] . Opened disc utility and selected my hard disc - but Repair disc button doesn't come up

    Welcome to Mac-Forums

    When you say the Repair disk button doesn't come up, do you mean it's greyed out?
    Also if you could provide other info for us like OS version and model/ year of macbook you have.

    And that is booting from the Snow Leopard disc which is a full retail install version and not a disc from another machine?

    If so, you may be looking at a faulty hard drive. Download SmartReporter and see what is says.

    Hang on to those original install discs like grim death! Using OS X.7 or later make a bootable USB thumb drive before running Installer!
