Activity for rEFInd

  • Jordan Knott Jordan Knott posted a comment on discussion General Discussion

    I've tried looking online but I couldn't find an answer. Is there a way to hide the boot target & options screen that comes after selecting a OS to boot into?

  • Kumbej Kumbej posted a comment on discussion General Discussion

    Dear Roderick, I'd also like an option to have it removed, please consider this since it really destroys what we mainly use rEFInd for: aesthetics. There's definitely significant demand for it. Thank you very much.

    Hi! I would also appreciate very much if an option to hide/disable this was added, as the blue box flashes too quickly to even be seen, and does not fit my theme. In addition, when I was having problems with refind, it was not useful to me at all for debugging.

    Thought I'd chime in here. Decided to update refind today. Running MacOS 10.12.6 (Sierra). After properly updating, refind boots, but I'm stuck at the blue "Scanning for bootloaders; please wait..." message. I left it for about 30 minutes to be sure. My SSD Mac Pro with loads of RAM shouldn't take more than a minute, so it's something wrong with the refind code/default conf for my system. Don't want to mess about with the scanfor in the .conf. It's worked 'out of box' before, so I'll keep it that...

    I've achieved dual Windows boot (different drives) by mixing appropriate stanzas (which contains first Windows entry) and automatic rEFInd search (with filters like dont_scan, which keep second Windows entry only visible). Chatting with Microsoft representative is useless. They claim "Windows is not designed for multiple instances" (you can react "so why Windows boot menu for" - but it only prolongs convulsions of that chat), and get rid of you by promise "we will send you an e-mail with all recent...

    I am following a guide to triple boot MacBook Pro in which the first step is to boot camp, and then shring the Windows partition while inside Windows. Then installing rEFInd and then installing GNU/Linux. However: after the rEFInd is installed and I am booting up, I get two entries for the Windows 7 with different icon design and slightly different labeling. The first one (the second from the left. The MacOS is the very first from the left) is showing an icon of four grey/white squares in a diamond...

    I want to be able to use my desktop background as the banner as well, but a lot of the images used for the background are jpegs. The current solution I use involves converting the background to a png and then copying it to the refind root directory. While the solution does work, it's incredibly rudimentary.

    Hi. I have a Macbook Pro where I have removed the dvd-drive and replaced it with a 2nd internal harddrive. I have refind installed on my OSX harddrive and when I boot I'm greeted by refind which shows only the OSX drive. I have linux (Ubuntu) installed on the 2nd drive and when I boot into the OSX part it is recognised in disc-tools. I haven't installed refind on the linux drive. I would like refind to see the second drive with linux on. Is there something I have missed or should try to make it work?...

    Hi all, Firstly, congratulations on rEFInd - it's fantastic. I've recently installed it on a laptop that has three different OS's; Ubuntu, and two separate installations of Windows 10 (all on the same physical SSD). I've successfully configured rEFInd to bypass Grub when booting Ubuntu and directly load the OS instead, but I can only boot the two MS installation by first loading the Windows Boot Manager from rEFInd, then selecting the desired Windows OS. In some cases, this requires a further machine...

    Same behaviour with a static menuentry (booting to normal OSX). I managed to have some more error message when trying to boot the Apple recovery (from the showtools menu) Starting boot.efi Using load options '' Recovery Image Verification failed status [0x00blablabla...] So I guess this is no refind issue but really something I messed up in OSX by disabling the CoreStorage volumes... I'm also guessing the fact it boots normal OSX is some kind of fallback behaviour. Regards,

    Hi Rod, Thanks for the hints! Indeed, ext4 formating from scratch worked and I don't have that delay anymore. Regarding the OSX recovery, When starting it, I get a white stroke circle on a black background and after a while I get back to refind. I have tried to load the recovery HD partition using the Mac's boot loader and doing so also starts a normal OSX session... I now remember when it all started. This is actually after I resized the Macintosh HD volume (which is why I needed to disable CoreStorage)...

    Remove it or at least make it configurable, please.

  • Rave Hurtz Rave Hurtz posted a comment on discussion General Discussion

    Please remove the message. It might seem trivial to remove it or make it optional. However this is due to the fact that the existance of the message is trivial itself, since the bootloader will load regardless of the message showing up or not. Users with systems that need longer to load are aware of that fact, thus they don't need an additional reminder of this. And, as Jacob Shtokolov already stated, the whole purpose of the theming is truncated by the rather annoying message. PLEASE REMOVE IT!

    Hi Guys, I have just installed Refind on my 2017 iMac. The problem is that I cannot see my macOS partition from Refind. Is it because of APFS or whats the problem ? My Windows partition shows up just fine :) Thanks in advance

    I recently installed rEFInd on my 27" iMac (the "late 2017" version) which has a 5k native resolution (5120x2880). But when I first booted OS X using rEFInd, it boots into a lower resolution (3840 x 2160) on info. I used mountesp, and edited refind.conf to manually set the native resolution ("resolution 5120 2880"), but it boots once again with the incorrect resolution. If i boot my Mac holding the option key the resolution goes okay! Tried also with the "onlytext" option but with the same (bad)...

    Hello, I have an old iMac 5,1 running 10.6.8 Snow Leopard dual booting with Ubuntu Desktop 16.04 - 64bit with rEFInd installed. I can boot into either OS with no issuses. However, the start up process is a bit ugly. When I hit the power on button this is the sequence of events: 1. blank grey screen, 2. blank grey screen with blinking Folder with a Question Mark 3. rEFInd screen with OS X icon and 3 Penguins labeled Boot Linux Legacy Whole Disk, EFI, FAT32 4.

    I went on #refind to get some help, and was told to use efibootmgr, which worked perfectly! The exact command I used was: $ efibootmgr --bootnext 0000 && reboot (I found 0000 by running efibootmgr with no arguments to figure out what to pass to --bootnext)

    UEFI BIOS keeps boot list and queue in NVRAM, so it's required anyways. Try to reset NVRAM. I've done it few times to repair startup on some 2nd/3rd gen of Intel core i CPU-based PCs, which are most vulnerable to NVRAM quirks AFAIK. Software required depends on BIOS type, and sometimes flashing whole UEFI-BIOS is needed (BIOS program, boot code and NVRAM), but I have no idea how it goes on Macs.

By the way you can't mount another EFI partition (to pick proper bootloader from another drive) as...

    Hi Due to a hardware issue, my MacPro 3.1 does not save nvram. This meens that I cannot select a disk to boot, the information is lost at each startup. So the mac always boots on the first drive. I want to know if rEFInd use the nvram to store something to start? Is it possible to install rEFInd to be the default way to start for the Mac? And just to be sure (because my english is not so good), can rEFInd replace the startup panel by selecting a HD to boot, never mind if it is not a pref pane. But...
