    Help with rEFIt

    The instructions I provided in the post above fixed the issue of refit not showing up. I then discovered that the delay was only happening when my external hard drive is plugged in. I guess something is wrong with it...

    Help with rEFIt

    I've got a 100gb bootcamp partition with Windows 7 64-bit installed. I recently upgraded my 2010 iMac to a 2012 iMac. Specs: 27" Core i5, 768gb SSD. I was using rEFIt on the old one just fine. rEFIt is installed on the Macintosh HD, not EFI. On the new machine, it takes upwards of 2 minutes for the refit menu to appear. First I tried a repair permissions on the Mac HD. Then I did some googling and read about "blessing" the partition that refit was installed. I tried that, but now the refit menu doesn't come up at all. It does the same ~2 minute pause and then automatically boots to Windows or OS X (depending on which one I choose in the bootcamp manager before rebooting). If I do a diskutil list in terminal, I get the following: /dev/disk0 0: GUID_partition_scheme 751.3 GB 1: EFI 209.7 MB 2: Apple_HFS Macintosh HD 649.0 GB 3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB 4: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 101.4 GB I have a feeling that something USB is causing the slowdown, but I need to at least get rEFIt back to working status before I test that theory. Does anyone have suggestions? Thanks!
