    My Macbook running BootCamp with Mac OS X and Windows 7, however, the Mac OSX cannot work, so I try to re-install Mac OS X on Machintosh HD, when I boot from Cd-rom and run installer, it shows:

    "You cannot install Mac OS X on this volume.

    An error was encountered while running the VolumeCheck tool for Mac OS X"

    I have try to use verify and repair disk functions from "Disk Utility", but no errors found.

    The only way is try to delete partition on Machintosh HD to fix installation problem, will it affect Windows 7?

    If I read you correctly, I think it will affect the W7 partition if disk utility is going to reformat the drive. I can't tell from your post if that's what's happening or not.
