    Hi there,

    I'm having trouble with EFI and windows.

    I can boot into windows fine by holding alt. Mac OS sees the boot camp partition, and windows the mac partition.

    I have installed windows 7 on a NTFS partition.

    I have installed rEFInd as a solution to handle my booting process. However, try as I might, I cannot get windows to show up on the boot menu via EFI.

    If I configure rEFInd to look for BIOS bootloaders on the HDD, windows appears but selecting it comes up with an error (which is expected given that the configuration guide located here points out that this setting is largely useless on UEFI pcs).

    I remember having such a configuration working fine with rEFIt, OS X Lion, and a previous windows installation.

    I'm running the latest version of Mountain Lion and the latest update to Windows 7.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
