Hi, everyone.

I have one partitions - with Mac OS. Now, I want to create one more partitions. I open Disk Utility and specify new partitions using + button in the mas disk. Then I click apply. Application returns strange message partition failed with the error: couldn't modify partition map because file system verification failed. I googled for that problem and everywhere people advice to repair disk using boot CD with MacOS which leads to deinstalling all applications, perhaps, losing windows partition and very time consuming. I don't like this way. Do you have an idea how I can create just one partitions?
