rEFIt?

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Heya,

 

Just a Q: I like having a on-default bootloader, so I use rEFIt on my iMac to select my Windows and Mac partitions without having to hold option (which is flakey because I use a non-standard keyboard).

 

Is it working in 10.7?

I had to format my disk to install 10.7 Lion on my harddrive cause it needs the GUID partition table. So I also had to reinstall rEFIt 0.14.

 

It works absolutely fine (of course it still needs to be booted twice to show up)!

 

Got my Mac OS X/Ubuntu Dualboot running smoothly again.

 

Greetz,

PS: In case you need to reinstall Ubuntu, I would start with the 10.04 Version as it seems to have all the needed drivers. As soon as Ubuntu is installed, the upgrade is no problem.

It works fine on my first gen MacBook Air. I have it installed on a separate 1GB (wouldn't let me make it any smaller) partition on it's own. This prevents from having to install every time I upgrade my OS. Just remember to bless the partition that it is installed on to prevent any boot delays.
