rEFIt menu disappears for no reason

Problem:  Using rEFIt so I can dual boot between Mac OSx and Windows 7.  Every once and a while, the menu to choose what operating system to use disappears.  For what seems to be no reason..

Solution:  According to rEFIt’s website, running OSx updates might disable rFIt but it doesn’t do it all the time… Run the following commands within your Mac OS and the menu will come back.

  1. Open Terminal
  2. type cd /efi/refit
  3. type ./
  4. you will then need to put in the administrator password and you’re golden.
