    Disk Permissions - HFS Volume Needs Repair.
    I am trying to partition my computer so I can add XP and play on the poker sites that don't support mac. I had vista before, but the trial period expired so i deleted it. I am getting this message below. I don't know what to do. I tried to repair the disk permissions, but it seems to not do anything.

    Please help...

    Disk Utility stopped verifying “Mac” because the following error was encountered:

    The underlying task reported failure on exit
    1 HFS volume checked
    Volume needs repair


    Repairing permissions for “Mac”
    Determining correct file permissions.

    Permissions repair complete


    The privileges have been verified or repaired on the selected volume
    Verifying volume “Mac”
    Checking HFS Plus volume.
    Checking Extents Overflow file.
    Checking Catalog file.
    Checking multi-linked files.
    Checking Catalog hierarchy.
    Invalid directory item count
    (It should be 35 instead of 34)
    Checking Extended Attributes file.
    Checking volume bitmap.
    Checking volume information.
    The volume Mac needs to be repaired.

    Did you try repairing the Mac disk? That is, boot from the OS X DVD, open up Disk Utility from the Utilities menu and then use the disk repair option...

    Is there any way i can do this without the disks? Can I take it to the shop? How much do you think that would cost?

    I am guessing that most Mac shops are like the one I went to in Thailand when my MB was very sick (they were charging a set fee of X amount - I didn't use the service and did it myself as I thought the guy was a bit of a prat, which is why I can't remember the price he quoted me).

    Sorry I can't be more helpful but someone who can help will be along in about 10 minutes

    If you can find someone with another mac, you could connect yours via Firewire cable and do the same repair thing.

    You cannot do it yourself without using the install DVD as you have to be booted from there to run 'Repair Disk' in Disk Utilities, not from the startup volume. If you don't have the disk, how did you get the OS onto your computer?

    I suggest looking at ebay or a second hand Mac dealer for a set of the install discs.

    Pop 9.1 into the CD slot, boot holding down "C". If you get the Installer page, go to Utilities > Disk Utility > Format Hard Drive with OS 9 Drivers. Your problem is the drive is still set up for FAT 32 or another Windows format and has to be initialized.
