rEFIt 0.14 gptsync prevents my linux from booting

Recommended Posts

Hi all,


I've been having trouble with rEFIt 0.14:


I have a MacbookPro with OS X on the hard drive, and a Debian 6.0.1a live cd on a usb stick.


I can boot the live cd fine, but if I sync the partition tables using rsync, when I try to boot the live cd it just displays a black screen with "GRUB _" on the top left corner and freezes.


The problem is fixed by syncing the partition tables again with the os x gptsync tool.


I have read a few things but haven't seen anything about this problem. Has anyone else experienced something of the sort? Is there some problem I need to solve with rEFIt?
