I have an issue with Bootcamp on my 2009 MacBook Pro 13"
When I boot up the computer holding the option key, I see two drives: Macintosh HD and Recovery HD (supposed to be invisible?), but no Bootcamp.
In System Preferences > Startup Disk, Bootcamp appears but I cannot boot into it from there, returning some error about the bless tool being unable to set Bootcamp as the startup disk.
I think I know how this happened, but am not sure how to fix it. The problem started a few weeks ago when a permission problem caused Lion to become un-bootable (which I fixed by reinstalling Lion). Before doing this, I used an Ubuntu Live CD and ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair to attempt to fix the boot issue. This program analyses the disk and it's partitions, and rewrites the partition table (useful if the boot table is corrupt or has missing entries). I think this also caused Recovery HD to become visible (it is normally invisible, but bootable by holding cmd+R).
Is there any tool/app to restore the default boot menu and be able to get Bootcamp back without reinstalling Windows?
Note: rEFIt is not a viable option because it has mixed results wether it works on Lion or not, and I am one with a short straw - it doesn't work for me :(
