    I don't understand this. I got this message over the weekend, followed directions to the point where I wiped my drive and reinstalled everything.

    I'm getting this message again today, basically after a fresh install.

    There's no way I want to deal with reinstalling everything again just to get the same message.

    Any ideas?

    It's telling you to use Disk Utility on the OSX disc to repair your drive. Have you tried this? :)

    I did, two days ago.

    It found an issue, then fixed it.

    Still, no dice.

    I'll try it again.. lets see what happens...

    If it makes a fix, it's always a good idea to run it again until it makes no changes. Good luck. :)

    If I had no context for this post, I would really wonder why it deserved a smiley. :D
