    So you did get rid of windows and give all of the space back to os x? and then you repartitioned your HD with bootcamp, right?

    You might wanna have a look here, it is on another forum. Hope it helps.

    as for the /efi folder, i'm not sure. I can go home in a min and check for you, unless someone else beats me to it.

    Well, like I said, it all works fine for me now that I turned off that firmware lock feature. Now all I need to know is if I can, in fact, delete that /efi folder.

    that's great thunder... had found some stuff about the firmware lock, but it was all pretty vague.

    I do not have that file on my Leopard system. Should be safe to get rid of it.

    Can we get one more verification from someone - no /efi folder on your 10.5 install?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Any news from the original poster? Did the rEFIt program help their problem at all?
