The partition change worked for me as well.
But, what caused us to have to adjust the partition like that? What caused the condition in the first place?

Currently Being ModeratedJan 29, 2010 12:15 PM (in response to jlsparks)I already have Snow Leopard installed on my imac. I am trying to reinstall snow leopard on my imac so I can wipe it clean and sell it. It tells me that it cannot be installed on my computer. I do not use PGP. Also, I followed your pointer and when i hit apply to partition the disk I get "Partition failed with the error: Could not modify partition map because file system verification failed". Anybody know what other steps I can take to get this resolved?
