I have tried rebooting after the install more than 4 times. No refit menu appears. When I hold down alt, I only see my Mac OS X Lion partition.

(I have created a windows format partition using Disk Utility before installing refit.)

I tried running the "manual" install script located at /efi/refit/enable.sh but still no refit menu.

I tried booting from a CD made the rEFIt dmg file. The refit menu appears and works as expected. gptsync says there is nothing wrong with my GPT/MBR boot records.

So what is stopping refit from working from my hard drive?

Has rEFIt been abandoned? I notice the updates stopped at the rEFIt site over a year ago.

How is grub2 coming along? Can it RELIABLY boot macbooks?
