    Hello all. I just got a 2011 15" Macbook Pro base model, which is my first mac, and I'm having an issue with rEFIt. I had no issues setting up or installing Snow Leopard but when I setup bootcamp to create the windows partition and then rEFI it will not show the windows partition I just created. It will show the OSX partition and my thumb drive, where I have my install of Win 7, but will not show the windows partition. I've tried creating and restoring this partition several times in bootcamp. I've also tried creating it through Disk Utility as well and I've also tried installing rEFIt both before and after creating the new partition, just in case. But I'm unsure if I'm missing something or what, so any help is appreciated. Thanks

    P.S. by the way this Macbook is the base 15" with the 6490 GPU. I have not changed any hardware.

    Can you boot to Windows by holding down the option key?
