#218 rEFIt on MBP late 2011


Hi! I've tried to install rEFIt on my MacBook Pro late 2011 but i've had no success, i think that there is something in the MBP firmware that block the installation...

Any suggestion or prove that i'm wrong is welcome..

Sorry for my poor english ;-)

    SMC Version (system): 1.70f5

    report from rEFIt partition inspector:

    and i get the same thing. i install, reboot comes up to Apple login screen, reboot, hangs at loading screen, force power off, power on, Apple login screen. nvr a refit screen. ANYONE have any idea what in the world is going on? i desperately want to be able to run refit on this mac. =\

    misterogwannabe, have you tried the various suggestions already listed on this page? Have you tried installing rEFIt on a separate partition? rEFIt is working just fine for me.

    I was having this same issue but fixed it by running the "Repair Disk Permissions" function in the Disk Utility tool.
