Description Jurgen Kramer 2010-05-28 16:05:52 UTC
Description of problem:
After installing F13 x86_64 on my 2009 Mac Mini it would not boot F13. I found that the MBR partition table was not synced with the GPT.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
anaconda 13.42

How reproducible:
always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install F13 on Mac Mini
2. Reboot
3.
  
Actual results:
F13 fails to start

Expected results:


Additional info:
System boots through refit. I used the refit tools to sync the MBR.

BTW If I remember correctly I had the same problem with F10 and reported the bug...
