    I was trying to use boot camp to set sut windows, and it wouldnt let me partition the disk because it saud it needed to be repaired. I went into disk utility and pressed verify disk. Then this came up:

    Verifying volume “Macintosh HD”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Checking multi-linked files.
    Checking Catalog hierarchy.
    Checking Extended Attributes file.
    Checking volume bitmap.
    Checking volume information.
    Volume Header needs minor repair
    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair

    What does this mean, and how do i repair it? Will repairing it erase my drive?

    Not a big deal! :) Happened to me a while back.

    Just get your OS X install disc, put it in, restart and hold C to boot from the disc.

    Once it's all up, run Disk Utility and click Repair Disk. It should fix it up no problem.

    No. It will be fine. Basically it's arranging the free bits so they work together.
