Hello,

I was trying to install Windows XP using Boot Camp earlier today and I get stucked at the partitions tool. Whenever I try to create a partition (no matter what size) it loads for a bit then finally tell me that there is an error on the disk and that I should run the Disk Repair Utility, which I did. In there I click on "Verify the disk", a couple of lines of text show up and at the end it says that the disk needs to be repaired, but the repair button is disabled. I will try to rerun it with Mac OS X in english so I can take a snapshot of the error message I get and update this post.

Any tips ? Thanks!
- Alex

EDIT: Here's a screenshot of the error message I get in Disk Utility (in english): http://alexstre.net/img/diskutility-error.png
