    Lightbulb Macbook Pro OSX/Kali 2.0 grub-efi boot testing without Refit

    First POST! No seriously, I am about to give this post ( https://glandium.org/blog/?p=2830 ) a test. Something deep in my skull says we can get away without 'refit' as a boot loader. I'm posting asking if anyone here has tried this setup and on what model of MBP? I have a late 2013 15" and I'll reply with my findings, and maybe just maybe refit can go to the archives.

    First, sorry I won't help you much because I don't remember the way it worked for me.
    I have a mid 2010 MBP and ran OS X and *cough*blackarch*cough* for a while without an external loader.

    As I said, I don't remember exactly how I got there, but I think, the trick was to use two different EFI partitions and you could switch to the non-default by getting into the UEFI boot menu (I think by keeping the cmd key pressed while booting).
    Maybe you should have a look at the following links:
    http://docs.kali.org/installation/ka...install-on-mac
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/MacBook
    https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php...recommended.29

    The last two links are for Arch Linux but might apply to Kali as well. There was a lot of trial and error back then - make sure to have a proper backup.
