    I had a similar issue and a restart fixed my problem.

    A few things you can try should that fail:
    • Make sure you have the latest BootCamp version.
    • Run Verify Disk in Applications/Utilities/Disk Utility (tell us about any errors). You can also try the Repair Permissions function.
    Less those two I'd be lost, next step may be to archive and install Mac OS X.

    I ran the "Verify Disk", everything was fine and restart. it works
    this problem had been solved. but another one came out after. lol

    I can drag the divider, 5gb for win, 6gb for mac

    but it had error when I started partition.

    then I ran the "Verify Disk" again, but it had error this time o_O

    it said:
    "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
    (It should be 2920836 instead of 2920833)",2)

    The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit

    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair
    "

    But the "repair disk" buttom is disabled, I can't repair it.

    Alright, what you need to do is start your computer up with the discs it came with. Put disc 1 into the drive and hold C after the bong. It will boot up into the OS X installation. Choose the language, and once the menubar (at the top) appears, click Utilities and then Disk Utility. You will be able to run the Repair from this window.
