    Simple - just boot from your OSX DVD (Command-C during boot up) and run Disk ujtility from the DVD (under the Utilities menu) and do a Repair Disk

    Problem solved.

    The thing is: Disk utility cannot Repair a disk, while the machine is booted from that disk. That's where the 'failure on exit' thing comes from

    Use File System Check at the UNIX command prompt

    Restart your Mac in Single-User Mode. Run File System Check:

    1. Restart.
    2. Press [ cmd ]+[ s ] until the command prompt appears.
    3. Type fsck -fy.
    4. When you get back the command prompt, repeat Step 3 until there are no additional repairs.
    5. Type exit.

    Yeah, I'm not entirely sure what happened here. Why are there three threads with almost the exact same title from three different people?

    I mean, thanks for searching, but no thanks for three bumps on the same topic. :(

    You already quoted the directions.

    fsck is file system check

    ---

    Funny thing is -- click on desktop -- go to help -- type 'single user'

    Get this

    When you go into single user mode, there are directions on the screen for using fsck.
