24 hours for that option is too long...
Since they say it will take an hour, maybe so. But it has been known to take 3 days or more and be successful, so I'd wait it out first (while pricing options for HDD replacement). Keep it up on a monitor in the background so that you can detect if it goes into a reboot loop. If it does, then C&D could indeed be futile.

Sorry, there is no way to exit this loop. :(
Your next option is to replace the hard drive.
Actually there is a way. The last option is a new HDD. The next option and last resort before HDD replacement is kick-start codes (search wikipedia). They work on occasion, but don't get your hopes up.
