This is for my fellow computer lab managers interested in dual-boot labs.

Attached files: refit.efi and refit.conf

Added to the end of the conf file:

# Disable the ability to boot from the optical drive, external drive,
# and/or internal drive. (Does not prevent rEFIt from scanning drives for
# bootloaders.) This is intended as a quick fix to not display certain
# volumes based on the media type.
#
#disableopticalboot
#disableexternalboot
#disableinternalboot

Simply uncomment whatever device type you want to disable.

    I tried the Disable boot options from conf file with a new iMac and it doesn't work, but it works fine on an older Mac Mini.

    I'm trying to get my hands on an iMac to test. Do you know if it was a MA876LL, MA877LL, or MA878LL?

    rEFIt 0.11 was released, the official binaries now have these options.
