    Hello guys, When i first got my macbook i installed bootcamp and windows xp, but after a while win xp started to be windows xp and crapped on me, so i deleted it and created 1 mac os partition to reinstall win xp again, i did that because i also wanted to make the partition smaller, but now that i want to recreate the windows partition with bootcamp i get an error and it tells me to run disc utility to fix it, so i did and with "verify disk permissions" and "repair disk permissions" fixed somethings, but when i try to do "verify disk" it gives me some errors and it wont repair, heres a screenshot.

    It's because you can't repair the disk you're booted from. You can either boot from the OSX discs and use the bundled Disk Utility from there or you can run fsck. :)

    It's also possible that Disk First Aid/fsck won't repair it, which it should do on boot anyway.

    Hopefully, it's not one of those things that requires a third party tool.
