I was trying to use BootCamp but during partitioning it said there was an error veryfing the disk and to use disk utility to fix it.

So I did, clicked verify disk in disk utility and this is the report i get:

"Volume Header needs minor repair
The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired.

Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit


1 HFS volume checked
Volume needs repair"

So then I click Repair permissions, it goes through, no erros, Try everything again but still get the same errors :( :( :(

The "Repair Disk" button is not clickable only the other three
Ah, that's because you can't repair the boot drive. Try booting from another drive, such as the OS X Install disc. You should then be able to repair that drive.

Put CD in drive
Restart computer and press and hold C before you hear the chime
OS X installer loads, choose English, then click utilities->Disk utility
Repair the drive

Here's another one, if you can't find the CD's try booting with CMD+S into single user mode and typing in fsck -fy to repair your volumes as well

Actually Safe Mode, if I'm correct, does not, it just loads the minimal amount of devices you need to run/repair/diagnos OS X. I could be wrong though.
