    Here's what happened:

    I installed XP, it ran fine, until it started crapping out.
    So, I decided to join the partition again.

    I changed my mind, and I wanted to repartition it again, but it gave me the error I attached on the image.

    Oh, not sure if this will tell you anything, but I think from the first time I partitioned Windows, it left some weird partition. (I checked it out using Drive Genius)


    after a few restarts and attempts to repair, it gave me this

    Verifying volume “Macintosh HD”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Checking multi-linked files.
    Checking Catalog hierarchy.
    Checking Extended Attributes file.
    Checking volume bitmap.
    Volume Bit Map needs minor repair
    Checking volume information.
    Invalid volume free block count
    Invalid volume free block count
    %@ instead of %@)",2)
    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair

    Insert your Mac OS X install disc, restart your Mac and boot from the install disc, access disk utility and repair the disk. If this does not work and you still want to install windows, back up your data and reinstall Mac OS X.

    You have to remember Boot-camp is in Beta stage so it's bound to have some flaws
