    That qualifies as an "issue".

    The installer verifies the integrity of your HD before upgrading OS X. If it has defects that cannot be repaired then it requires replacement. You would be understandably disappointed if it were to upgrade your system, then be unable to start because its hard disk is corrupt.

     

    Try starting your Mac from its original System Install DVD. Insert the disc and restart while holding the c key. Choose your startup volume from the left column and select "Repair Disk". Make note of any errors it finds. Even if it repairs successfully, it is likely to fail again.

     

    Hard disk drives can be replaced. Expect to pay nearly $400 for an Apple Store repair.

     

    You will not have to pay for Mountain Lion again. It's yours forever and can be downloaded again, as often as you require.
