    So, I am running better of the two macbook pros, stock, and I recently installed the boot camp assistant and get to the partition part, I then choose to give xp 32gb of space. So it begins to partition, then a message pops up saying:
    "The disk cannot be partitioned because verification failed.
    Use disk utility to repair the disk"

    I then proceed to open up Disk utility. For the first disk in the list which is the 'Fujitsu MHW2120BH 120BH Media' the option to 'Repair Disk' is faded away, so I cannot repair the disk. Although, Verify Disk Permitions, Repair Disk Permitions and Verify Disk are all selectable. I can verify and repair the disk permissions no problem, but when I select 'verify disk' it begins verification, then after a while a box comes up that says 'Disk Utility stopped verifying "Macintosh HD" because the following error was ecountered: The underlying task reported failure on exit.' Then in the disk utility dialogue box it says:
    "573393 /Users/charliepermezel/Library/Application Support/Adium 2.0/Users/Default/libgaim/icons/1b167a2e
    Checking volume bitmap.
    Volume Bit Map needs minor repair
    Checking volume information.
    Invalid volume free block count
    (It should be 23826238 instead of 23826239)
    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair"

    Can somebody please help me? It would be much appreciated. If you need any extra info just ask.

    It's tough being a mac noob (this is my first mac)

    reboot with the mac os x install cd and run disk utility to use the greyed-out repair disk option.

    I just tried partitioning it as well and it either gives me the "verification failed" error or the "these files cannot be moved" error. I repaired disk twice already with the OSX cd and it says it's fine and then I restart and it still gives me the same thing. :/

    I'm getting the "Some Files cannot be moved" error also! Anyone know anything about this?
