    Even if Mac OS X shows you have 120GB of free HDD capacity, the 120GB might be scattered around the HDD, and Boot Camp needs to create a continuous partition, which might not be possible if the data is scattered. You could try to defragment your HDD with iDefrag or reinstall Mac OS X completely, with re-creating the Macintosh HD partition.

    Why do you need to repair the HDD via Disk Utility?

    Have you tried repairing via Disk Utility from the Restore or Installation DVD?

    This is important. You want to boot from the install disc so that no files on the HDD are currently in use.
