Need help from a rEFIt expert

2 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

I used Disk Utility to partition it into Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Swap volumes as well as resize the original single OS X volume. I then booted a Windows installer then the Linux installer then created an OS X Sandboc system using SuperDuper on the OS X partition.


I then installed rEFIt. So far all is working as expected except that once Windows or Linux is chosen to boot I get the Grub boot loader menu. There's no direct boot into the chosen OS.


I cannot determine what needs be done to prevent the Grub boot loader from running. I was under the assumption that it would be handled exclusively by rEFIt.


Please help me.

I'm not rEFIt expert, but as far as i know rEFIt IS NOT a bootloader. It just let you choose WHICH bootloader to use (so for mac os it launchs bootcamp, for win the windows loader, for linux grub/burg/anything else you installed). For that same reason if you have grub configured to boot windows you can get into grub and boot win from there (quite useless though :()
