    I am trying to install boot camp on my macbook, but when I tried I got a message that says:

    Verification failed. This disk could not be partitioned. Use disk utility to repair disk.

    But, when I go to Disk Utility, Repair Disk is greyed out. I have successfully verified and repaired disk permissions, but when I try to verify disk, I get a message that says:

    First Aid Failed
    Disk Utility stopped verifying “Macintosh HD” because the following error was encountered:
    Filesystem verify or repair failed.

    And in the history in red, it says"

    Invalid volume file count
    (It should be 582239 instead of 582240)
    Invalid volume directory count
    (It should be 148799 instead of 148798)
    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired
    Error: Filesystem verify or repair failed

    What should I try to do to get the disk repaired so I can install boot camp?

    I also had the same issue...

    Apple's solution is to wipe your internal HD and re-install Mac OSX, however, I couldn't be bothered to do that so just kinda gave up on the idea, but a week later the problem had sorted itself out.

    So re-install Mac OSX, or just hope for some magic.

    bootcamp is sometimes inconsistent when partitioning drives, sometimes it works, sometimes it doesnt.

    @xSolstice: reboot from your osx install disk and use disk utility there to repair your disk

    Hope it works out...
