I'm in the process of installing ubuntu 14.04 LTS on macbook pro 13inch retina display with the end goal of having a dual boot setup with OS X. I'm using reFind as my boot manager, and since I have disk encryption enabled on my OS X partition, I can't install reFind on my mac os x partition. To work around this I created a separate 1GB partition just for the reFind boot manager and installed refind on it using install.sh with the –ownhfs and –alldrivers options. Currently my diskutil list output looks like this :
My-MacBook-Pro:~ yatin$ diskutil list /dev/disk0 #: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER 0: GUID_partition_scheme *251.0 GB disk0 1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1 -- ESP 2: Apple_HFS REFIND_BOOTMGR 864.0 MB disk0s2 -- custom HFS refind partition 3: Apple_HFS OS X 82.9 GB disk0s3 -- OS X 4: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s4 5: 0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4 83.5 GB disk0s5 -- ubuntu 6: Linux Swap 14.5 GB disk0s6 7: 0FC63DAF-8483-4772-8E79-3D69D8477DE4 68.4 GB disk0s7 -- shared volume
Now when I boot up my mac, I see refind's boot selector which displays three entries, one for ubuntu, one for my mac and a third for grub. I would like to remove the grub refind entry since it serves no purpose given that refind is booting my ubuntu image directly, but I'm unable to find the refind.conf file. I don't see the refind.conf under the usual location on the REFIND_BOOTMGR volume ie /EFI/refind/refind.conf. Where should it be located ?
