I have a Macbook 5.1, with OS X Lion and Boot Camp installed.

rEFIt was installed and booted Ubuntu fine. After booting to the Mac partition, it freezes after "executing fsck_hfs" (seen in verbose mode). I need to force reboot and the Mac boots normally.

Disk Utility found somes minor errors in the disk. These errors and the freeze appear every time I reinstall rEFIt.

I'm unable to boot to the rEFIt menu again, even though I've run both /efi/refit/enable.sh and the rEFIt installer.

This issue has been verified by several others in the rEFIt bugtracker.

Isn't it supposed to be sudo /efi/refit/enable-always.sh ? Maybe they both work, I don't know. I didn't have any freezing issues, but I know after using that command, it booted into refit immediately (meaning I didn't even have to boot 2-3 times like you normally do installing refit for the first time).
Also, if it's freezing at fsck, have you tried running fsck in single user mode?

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: refit, freeze, bootcamp
