    I got the this Error while trying to partition my hard drive after deleting my boot camp partition and then trying to make my Macintosh HD the full 250gb...

    Partition failed with the error:

    Could not modify partition map because filesystem verification failed

    After I got this error I went to the "first aid" tab in disk utility and tried to "repair disk permissions" then try it and got the same error...

    If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

    I think BootCamp Utility has a feature which will repartition the drive back to where it used to be, so check that

    It's "Boot Camp", not "BootCamp", which is why Spotlight didn't find it.

    So is there no way for me to fix it since I did it a different way? Or should i just try to take it to the Apple Store and talk to an Apple Genius?
