These days I had a problem with my superdrive and I had to repair my disk.
As you know you can only repair your disk with the OS X DVD. So I felt trapped.
But there was a solution!!! Just boot on Safe Mode repairs the disk.

Here are the 4 steps to Boot on Safe Mode:
1 - Shut down the Mac
2 - Turn it on
3 - As soon as you hear the start up sound , push the SHIFT key and hold it
4 - Release it when you see the flower (loading) in the grey screen

Your Mac will take more time to boot and the fans will make a lot of noise.
When you finally see the long on screen it will be DONE.

To leave Safe Mode you only have to restart your Mac.
