TOPIC: Which profile should I choose?

Which profile should I choose? 31 Mar 2012 08:18 #2202

Thanks in advance for the help.
I'm running Lion on an Intel MacbookPro. I appear to be having HD issues (SMART Utility diagnosed my drive as failing, though it "feels" to be running ok). I want to use a more rigorous software to diagnose and repair the HD issues. Which profile do I choose? The ones below should work, but I don't understand which is best for my needs:
- Mac OS X Intel Profile
- Mac OS X Basic Profile
- Mac OS X Recovery HD Profile

The Intel profile, which takes its system software from an Apple Developer Kit for making bootable DVDs, will work, provided that yours is a supported model. If not, use the Basic profile, which copies system software files from the active boot volume.

If the drive may be failing and the volume is not already backed up, make a backup first.
