So, right after I sent that, I got it to detect correctly.

However, when I but off of it. (This is the HFS+ partition)

It boots to OS X, no grub menu, or anything. Which means it failed. But at least it sees it.

More details later.

And so far, have been unable to successfully boot into the machine.

This is on an Intel Mac Pro. I'm trying to do it *without* rEFIt.

I've compiled grub2 on a linux machine and copied it to a HFS+ partition. As well as the vfat GPT partition.

I then booted into OS X and blessed it, tried both the HFS+ and the vfat partition.

When holding down the alt key during boot, it does not show up in the menu.

However, when I use the refit boot CD, it detects that I have grub.efi on the HFS partition.
If I select that partition for booting, it errors out, and I get the message:

"Error: Unsupported while loading grub.efi"

So, refit *knows* that the efi is there, how do I get the Mac itself to understand that?
