    Default Can't Repair Disk Permissions - Ownership Confused?

    Okay... built a box this week with the following spec:

    - Gigabyte EP45C DS3R
    - Intel Q6600
    - 512 Palit 8400 GS
    - 2GB Corsair Value RAM
    - 500GB SATA2 Deskstar

    Installing Kalyway 1.5.2 went like a breeze, was caught out once by burning it at 4x, but burning at 2x worked fine! Sound took a while, until I found the right thread with the right Kexts, and getting dual screen graphics was no trouble with EFIStudio!


    I'm stuck at the moment though, I think the disk ownership might be messed up, as trying to repair permissions on the hard disk won't work.

    Verify Disk Permissions gives the message:
    Error: The underlying task reported failure on exit.

    Verify Disk says:
    "ERROR: could not freeze volume (Permission denied)

    Booting from the Kalyway DVD running Disk Utility from there lets me verify the disk, but gives the same error for verifying the disk permissions.

    I've tried various settings for SATA in the BIOS, to no avail. The drive has GUID as the partition scheme, and is formatted as Mac OS Extended (Journaled)

    I had it working for a little bit on this install, but it seems to have got confused. Where could the problem be? I did partition it after installation, but have removed the partitions and it's still playing up. Would partitioning even have caused this?

    Not quite sure what you mean there - add zeros where? Don't see a button labelled 'Security Options' anywhere either.

    The disk itself is the one that I'm running the OS from, and I can read and write normally, it's just this bit that's not working. It's newly purchased, so it really shouldn't be at fault!

    Ah forgot to tell you, in disk utility is one of the way to format your HDD, theres like 4 there. In the left of Erase Button theres a button called Security Options, try that and good luck

    Ah... I understand you now, thanks. I could try this later along the line, but a full erase seems a bit extreme for a permissions problem! Can you think of any other ways to repair them?

    Yeh is kinda extreme, but I really dunno why you cant format your HDD, try making an active raw partition on Disk Management or Partition Magic and try again

    Did the reformat and it sorted it.. not sure how it went wrong but it did! Reinstallation and settting up devices goes quicker each time the more you've done it

    What your recommended way(s) for cloning an install? Leopard has Time Machine but on Tiger I'd been using SuperDuper.

    I have no idea about cloning HDDs, never tried b4, and never tried Time Machine, I dont have an External HDD.
