    Help me I am trying to install XP on my MBP with bootcamp and I want to partition 10gb and it loads for quite a while and then I get an error message saying "Verification failed. This Disk could not be partitioned. Use Disk Utility to repair this disk." What do I do?

    Use disk utility to repair this disk ;)

    Insert your Mac OS X disk and run disk utility in the installer area. Then click repair disk.

    I searched in spotlight for Disk Utility and there it is and I repaired it but do I need to use my Mac OS X Disc?

    You repaired permissions, not the disk. There is a difference.

    You need to boot from the installer DVD to run Disk Utility to fix the disk.
