I installed Ubuntu on my iMac (partially successfully) I had rEFIT installed but it did not recognize the Ubuntu installation.
I removed the partition and rEFIT and now when I attempt to install Windows on a new partition created using BootCamp, pressing
OPTION does not show the Windows USB created with Boot Camp, nor is the Apple Recovery or whatever partition that was available before.
It seems that my MBR is messed up or something?
I came across OSX86TOOLS and it seems to be able to install EFI and what not, however I'm not certain hat's exactly what I need to do.
Below is from Partition Inspector from rEFIT:
* Report for internal hard disk *
