Im trying to partition my internal drive on my mbp with bootcamp and it's giving me an error that It cannot partition my drive. The disk needs to be repaired through disk utility. I do that and I try it again and it doesnt work. How do I fix this. Has anyone run into this problem?

Put in your install DVD, hold 'C' on reboot to boot from the disk...Verify and repair the HD using the install DVD disk utility, not the one actually in Mac OSX, it took like 3 tries to get it right for mine. ;)

Also at this point make sure that journaling is enabled...boot camp needs this to be enabled...(should be the default way it was formatted though)
