    Hi all,

    I get the following message whenever I try to repair permissions using Disk Utility:

    "Disk Utility Internal Error
    Disk Utility has lost its connection with the Disk Management Tool and cannot continue. Please quit and relaunch Disk Utility. <Quit>"

    The log says pretty much the same thing. I'm running 10.3.9.

    Has anyone any ideas to solve this? Repairing permissions obviously isn't an option at the moment :)

    Thanks
    David

    Try booting up with the install DVD , then run Disk Utility. :eek:

    I'll give it a go. I was hoping I wouldn't need the install DVD, I won't be home for a couple of weeks to try it :(
    Thanks for the advice though I hope it works!
