    Ok so I need to run some windows stuff but when I use boot camp it tells me that The disk cannot be partitioned because some files cannot be moved, and when I use disk utility to partition it that says Partition failed with the error: Could not modify partition map because filesystem verification failed.

    It works best if you partition the hard drive right before or right after a fresh install of Mac OS X. I'd backup your data and boot from the Mac OS X install disk, use Disk Utility to partition your hard drive. Then install Mac OS X and restore your data from the Time Machine backup.
