    Onyx says disc needs repair. But how?
    New to Onyx, I just got it since Maintenance didn't work with a 10.7 upgrade... it says my startup disk (Macintosh HD) needs to be repaired, and to "restart while pressing command-R," then choose Disk Utility... I've tried restarting, pressing cmd+R at various points, but so far I get nothing. IS this something obvious that I've missed and should already know? thanks!

    hmmm... at what point should i see something? I've done this when black, and after it went to grey, but I end up with my usual desktop (though much slower)...

    As you see wireless keyboard and mice do not work on Command or Option keys. Bluetooth has not loaded. Always keep a wired set on hand.
    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!
