I was running Onyx, and while verifying the HDD, it told me I had an error on the startup disk and needed to run Disk Utility off of the CD to fix it. I ran the utility while in OSX (not the CD) and it says this:

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.
Checking volume information.
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

I do not want to mess anything up. I have heard the Disk Utility on the CD/DvD is either old or has problems. SO i just need to know for sure how to fix this.

Thanks for the help!

Reboot using the CD and it will repair the volume header. It cannot do it while osx is running. It's easy.
