comment Where can I get a “black screen” screensaver for OS X Lion?
Odd - you might need to look into activity monitor or ssh into the Mac to see why the CPU/GPU is pegged. Or you could just turn off the screen entirely - why waste cycles drawing a black background?

Sure - I've cleared the migration so this exact question is now open on Ask Different. I'll defer to the moderators here whether to close/delete this on Super User as well.

comment Are these unrepairable SSD errors indicative of a SSD hardware error?
@DavidM Excellent elimination of the Mac as a cause. The fix for software is to wipe the drive (or partition) and see if the new blank filesystem passes fsck/Disk Utility with no errors. You could also enroll a tool like Disk Warrior or Drive Genius to perform more thorough repair operations than Disk Utility. I believe Apple keeps it conservative to reduce the chance that the tool will think it fixed errors but actually lose data or cause more trouble down the road. The Apple tools rely on backing up often as opposed to fixing rare issues that do crop up IMO.

I'm going to push this to Super User where much more expertise on Windows installers is available. If it gets rejected there, we'll certainly host this on Ask Different, but I figure you'll get a speedier and better answer on SU.
