Hi,

I have a Macbook Air 11'' on EFI here.

I have formatted the disk to GPT:
- OS X
- free jounaled extended hfs partition
- free jounaled extended hfs partition
- free jounaled extended hfs partition

When I use refit to boot an Ubuntu or Windows 7 USB installer stick, everything works fine.

When format the second GPT partition to NTFS to install Windows on it, none of the sticks boot anymore and I get "BOOTMGR not found".

When I boot OS X and change the partition back to HFS, the sticks boot fine.

This is a problem because it allows me to install Windows ONLY when there is not partition I can install it on.

I suspect that rEFIt boots the NTFS partition even if I select the following partition. Maybe it is an indexing bug?

Thanks
Niklas
