    Choose OS Straight From ReFIT Not Through GRUB? Is It Possible?

    Hey Ubuntu Community,

    I am VERY new to all of this stuff and I have done everything correctly (to my knowledge) and there is just one last thing that I need to complete. I have triple booted my MacBookPro and I customized my ReFIT menu to have only three emblems in this order OS X (Mountain Lion), Ubuntu, and Windows 8. I want to boot straight into each OS when I select it from the ReFIT menu, but instead a purple GRUB menu comes up (if I choose Ubuntu or Windows) and I have to scroll through a bunch of different options to start up the OS I desire. My OS X (Mountain Lion) boots straight from ReFIT (without the GRUB menu) which is what I want for each OS but I don't know how to do so. So this is where I need help. Is it possible to boot into each OS (Ubuntu & Windows) without having to select the OS from the purple GRUB menu. I just want everything to look clean and professional and if there is no way to do what I am asking still let me know. Remember, I am new to this and your advice and solutions would be much appreciated.

    Thank you,
    BiggerestAl out!

    Replace Refit with refined it's better!

    change the config of ReFit he is the one that loads grub (load boot loader on disk 1 partition 2 )

    ReFind auto detects kernels! so boots directly
