    Boot your Macbook up with your OSX install disk and use the disk utility to repair your disk instead of just the permisions.

    Actually, before you said that, I repaired the disk with the disk utility.



    When I looked it up in Apple, it said I should do an Erase and Install installation.

    Sucks.

    It looks like your using the one in OSX, you need to boot your MacBook with the OSX install DVD to do a disk repair, the Disk utility in OSX can't repair your OS drive while OSX is running. I had the same error with my MacBook and booted it with the OSX install DVD and it worked first try, You'll notice right away that the Repair disk button in the buttom right corner isnt greyed out when running it from the DVD.
