Default rEFIt and fedora 16 install

I've installed f16 on a macbook pro and understand that I might be able to get it to boot if I run gptsync from a rEFIt disc. But I cannot eject the install disc in order to burn the rEFIt disc. I found the eject menu but it doesn't seem to work. Any suggestions?



Thanks,

Matt

Hy Matt

I'm not sure about F16 since it use grub2, but for the previous releases
including F15 gptsync was necessary to produce a MBR that (somehow) resembled
the content of the GPT (F<=15 use grub legacy, which cannot handle GPT
partition tables but only the traditional MBR). You can start gptsync from the
rEFIt boot menu, AFAIK there is no need for an additional boot disk. The
option for that is called "Start partioning tool" in the second row of the
rEFIt selection screen.

HTH, best

Patrick
