I got a new MBP, which came with Lion pre-installed. I've tried various things to get triple-booting going (OSX, Win7, Linux) but no luck so far. The stock boot selector (accessed via Option key on startup) recognizes multiple OSX partitions and a Windows partition, but not any Linux partitions. Windows, run in native mode, reports that the hardware version is 8.2.
During my set-up flailing, I installed rEFIt several times, but after each install, it would break whatever config I had working before then. IIRC, it was an every-other-boot breakage: I'd have to power down to recover from an unresponsive system, then the next Option-key boot would work, then the next boot would hang again. Perhaps this has something to do with the Blessing process?
Any advice on getting rEFIt to work, or on making the stock Option-key boot selector recognize the bootability of Linux GUID partitions?
