When i try to "apply" the changes to the hard drive (in disk utility) and create the new partition it gives me a " Partition faile file system verification failed" error.

Any ideas?

I have a simillar issue. Disk Utility won't let me partition (cannot reduce size of partition). Can we put the installer partition on a USB stick? I know taht it will be slow.

the problem is extra size on the large partition, i had to delete a bunch of stuff in order to partition the 8 gigs

i have and ssd that had 20 gigs extra, i deleted 20 gigs of stuff and it partitioned right away

I've trim my 64GB SSD from 28 to 33gb... and it still doesn't work. I get the same error (cannot reduce size of original partition).

try to get more if you can, this was definatly my problem, try googling "can't partition mac drive"or something, maybe it will tell you exactly how much you need

I've followed your advice and it seems that I can try to repair disk permission with disk utility. i've performed a verification, and there is a lot of things that differ.... can I use disk utility to repair disk permission? or will it mess up my hackintosh since I did not use Multibeast?

I have the same problem, running an SSD and get the same error.

I theoretically should have enough space by 3gb but it won't let me. I used disk utility to check the drive and had errors, I did repair but I think the errors come back on reboot.

No problems repairing through disk utility though.

Based on knowledge from other people from the forum, I will try to use a USB drive to update to Lion.
