    Those who have done a clean install of Lion:

    1. What method did you use? (extracted the DMG file, installed from App Store, etc.)

    2. Did you have a Windows Boot Camp partition and is it still working and recognized okay?

    Burned Lion then use the disk to erase OSX Partion and reinstalled. Doing so will cause issues with reFIT causing it to not work at all. Windows Partition was fine.

    Interesting you mentioned that. I've been thinking I should probably uninstall reFIT before doing the upgrade anyway.

    How did you fix the problem? Can you now boot both operating systems?

    I have not gotten reFIT to work. There is an entire thread dedicated to it but none have worked for me. I believe that the reason mines not working is because I never redid my Windows Partition. Windows and OSX Work for me. I have to hold down the option key like old times.

    I had to partition with Ipartition to keep bootcamp alive.
