When I try to partition boot camp, I keep getting the error message with the verification fail, along with it telling me to repair the disk with disk utility. Ive repaired both the disk using the startup disk and the permissions. Ive done this multiple times and it still give me the exact same error message telling me to repair it with disk utility.

It could be that you don't have enough space or enough "contiguous" space available that is throwing up that error. Best suggestion I can think of would be to backup your files using time machine or other, then re-install the OS and restore your files and try again.

Worst case scenario is that your HDD could be dying on you.

Maybe with some info on your machine specs and OS could be useful for helping you further.

Got more than enough space for the partition, everything is also updated to its most recent.

Do you by any chance have more than one partition on your drive already? If so, Boot Camp won't work. Probably worth checking. You might also have something wrong with the drive. That's an unusual error. If there's a fragmentation problem, you get a different error message.

Ended up backing up with time machine and formatted the HD. Took awhile to back up and restore, but it did work.

Great, glad you got it sorted. That approach will do the trick with many of these errors, even though it is a pain in the ***
