    Hi everyone,

    I'm using the rEFIT boot selector (it's either version 0.12 or 0.13) and I have a "Legacy OS" option that shouldn't be there.

    I think rEFIt thinks I have an extra operating system because there is a tiny gap between my Mac and Windows partition that I don't know how to get rid of.

    Is there any way to stop rEFIt from displaying this OS that doesn't exist?

    I don't know for sure but my understanding is that either:

    That partition exists on all GPT-formatted volumes but is just hidden.
    Using Boot Camp creates that partition.

    In either case, I don't know of a way to get rid of it... mostly because I cannot even get rEFIt to work properly. No matter what I try it will not display its boot selector menu, on ANY reboot, no matter what keys I press or don't press. :confused:

    I think you can edit a configuration file.

    You can use rEFit in conjunction with Bootcamp. People use rEFIt because they want a 3rd OS on their hard drive. Triple boot between OS X, Windows, and *BSD for example. Or maybe they want more than three. rEFIt does this.
