    I'm trying to run bootcamp to install windows, but it won't partion. It says
    "Verification failed. This disk could not be partitioned.
    Use Disk Utility to repair this disk."

    I've repaired it, or least what I thought was repairing it.

    I went to Disk Utility, highlighted Macintosh HD and under "First Aid" I clicked "Repair Disk Permissions".

    It goes through the process and whatnot. Am I not choosing the correct repair? The button that says "Repair Disk" does not let me click on it.

    Anyone have any ideas?

    Still, the "Repair Disk" is not able to be clicked.

    Same thing happened to me :( ...

    When i do the Verify disc process i get this message: "Error: This disk needs to be repaired. Start up your computer with another disk (such as your Mac OS X installation disc), and then use Disk Utility to repair this disk."

    ^^^What he said.

    To the OP, as Milan007 indicated, boot off of your OS X installation disk, and run Disk Utility off of that to repair your system disk. If that doesn't succeed, you're probably looking at reformatting the disk and re-installing OS X. Needless to say, back up your critical data before attempting any repair or reinstallation.

    I could be wrong, but I thought the normal solution was to defrag. That normally resolves the issue.
