I tried to do a HD recovery for OS 10.7.5. It failed, it says my recovery disc is damaged.  I tried to reinstall OS 10.7.5 from HD recovery, it failed.


How do I reinstall OS 10.7.5 (Lion) and repair my HD recovery drive so it can be used in the future.


This is suppose to be easy--without iMacs shipping with discs this has become a nightmare---so much for Apples being easy to use---starting to resemble another unnamed dozy company!

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.5)
