    Posted this in the Air Forum but have not gotten responses.

    Any suggestions on next steps? USB dongle install? USB Hard Drive install? Bust out the USB DVD Drive instead of saving the $100?

    I am thinking that it might run from the same partition to which I need to install if I converted that partition to NTFS first.

    Second try still no luck...

    Went ahead and unwrapped up the DVD drive.

    Installed Vista x64 from a cold restart while holding the 'C' key to bypass rEFIt since I could not get rEFIt to complete the Vista install from DVD either.

    Reformatted partition as NTFS during the Vista install.

    Completed the install. Rebooted.

    I get the rEFIt message "Error: Not Found while loading legacy loader" and "Please make sure that you have the latest firmware installed".

    Any ideas?
