    Question Volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired
    So in the midst of creating a partition for boot camp, an error was discovered. This being my first Mac... I have no idea what it means and I'm a bit worried. Says:

    "The volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired"
    "Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit."
    "1 HFS volume checked: Volume needs repair."

    Any help is appreciated. I'm still a few days of my return policy so I need to figure this out ASAP.... Thanks!

    -Dave

    Unhappy Disk Utility Error Message, what does it mean??
    When I verify my Macintosh HD disk it tells me that the volume Macintosh HD needs to be repaired and it gives me the following error:

    "The underlying task reported failure on exit"

    "Volume needs repair"

    The computer is running perfectly, but this came up when I tried to create a partition with Boot Camp, and now it's worrying the heck out of me. Any help is really appreciated!

    Good thing I just had this problem myself! Insert your OS X recovery disc. Reboot, holding down Alt/Option. Select the disc to boot from. When the recovery disc loads up, go to Utilities/Disk Utility on the menu bar. Run "Verify Disk" then run "Repair Disk" - that should get you back in business.

    FIXED! Thank you so much man! I can't tell you how much I appreciate that. I've never had a computer that fixes itself...

    Just to let you know: That happened to me when i did bootcamp. Now that error won't stop even though the disk is fine.

    It possibly could. I don't know how, though.

    Fixed it thanks to the help of this forum. Booted up from OSX disc and repaired HD from there in no time.
