hi im really stuck with the error :Couldn’t modify partition map because file system verification failed.

i want to create a snow leapord partition so i can play power pc games mainly for age of empires 2 as it no longer supported in lion

i have a 13" macbook pro 2010 model (the one before thunderbolt) which had snow leapord on then when lion came out i upgraded to lion and since then i cant create partitions anymore i have tryed opening disk utility and repair disk and verify but it always comes up with ok?

i have the snow leapord cds what come with the laptop but no lion cd as it was brought through the app market,

hope some one can help really would like to get this fixed as i might need windows 7 partition soon aswell.

thanks luke

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
