    Exclamation MacBook Air rEFIt Ubuntu partition won't go away

    I installed Ubuntu using rEFIt on my MacBook Air. I removed the Ubuntu partition and re-sized OS X 10.9.2 partition but when I boot up my Mac, Ubuntu option is still there.
    I didn't use SWAMP because the tutorial on YouTube told me not to. Please help!

    Thank you.

    Moved to the Apple sub-forum.

    With PC and UEFI you have to remove entry from efi partition first and then from UEFI. UEFI has its own SRRAM to save boot info.
    Do not know if a Mac would be the same also?
    For info on UEFI boot install & repair:
    Please use Thread Tools above first post to close thread when/if answered completely.

    What you can try to do is uninstall rEFit, shutdown and restart your computer, then install it again. It will generate a new boot list that should reflect the changes you made on your partitions.
