What I'm trying to do here is be able to get a windows xp partition on my mac which I have done successfully before. But when I tried to do so again I came across the error which asked me to repair my disc using Disk Utilities. I tried to and when it asked me to use my Os X Snow Leopard disk I tried to boot from it. Then I restarted my mac. When the screen was white an error popped up showing a "O" with a "/" inside of it and then show the ? in a folder. 1. I restart and hold alt and pick the disc from the list showing my hard drive and the disc. What happens is the same, with minus the ? in a folder and then after a minute or two it just goes brings me back to my desktop and everything is back to normal. 2. I also tried holding c 3. Another thing is I used disk utility to verify the disk permissions on the disk itself. It said that the disk was ok, and I looked at my hard drive and basically it told me to use the disk to repair. For some reason I think its not the disk thats the problem its that my disk is so damage that I can't even fix it. Also another side note that may have caused this issue was when I previously had a windows xp partition. This partition had a blue screen error every single time I went on it and I deciced to delete the partition. I'm lost please help.
