    I was just about to order Snow Leopard, but then it hit me. Could it screw up rEFIt and my triple booting-ness?

    I asked my friend who is also using rEFIt and they think it could mess things up.

    What's your opinion, will it do no harm, or will it? And if it does, should I still get Snow Leopard? It was a bit of a pain installing everything, and I've just finished installing 80GB of games onto my Windows partition, so obviously I don't want that getting wiped or unable to boot!

    Thanks for putting up with my paranoia :D

    If you don't do erase and install you should be fine. If you want to wipe the disk, just back up /efi and put it back. You might need to re-bless also.

    Okay, thanks. Never updated a Mac before.

    but I've run into another problem, when I try to order the Mac OS X Snow Leopard Up-to-Date Programm I click on the link, it asks me to login, so I do, then it just takes me to my basket. Which is empty. :confused:
