Installing rEFIt - at the sourceforge rEFIt page has a link to the CD Burning Instructions.

Update on your comments.
.cdr are used for Disk Images created on Mac
- I suspect the Windows/Linux target file '
rEFIt-0.14.cdr.gz' is a gzipped ISO
Try the following,
gunzip the '
rEFIt-0.14.cdr.gz' to '
- Rename '
rEFIt-0.14.cdr' to '
If you don't have '
gunzip' handy, use 7-zip.
- The file is just under 7MB so I downloaded it and tried some of the steps.
gunzipped file shows these details on my windows machine,
$ file rEFIt-0.14.cdr
rEFIt-0.14.cdr: Apple Partition data block size: 512,
first type: Apple_partition_map,
name: Apple, number of blocks: 63,
second type: Apple_HFS, name: disk image,
number of blocks: 40896,
- Since its a
.gz which opened properly for both of us, chances of it being corrupted are none (unless its corrupted at the source).
- The sourceforege description very clearly says this
.cdr should be processed as an ISO. However, this file detail of Apple partition map surprises me a bit. I do not have a Mac handy
- let me see if I or someone here can figure things out
- One direction to check is: How to burn a mac-disc on windows?
Oh!, There is something very obvious missing here...
These are bug reports from their sourceforge track!
If your CD recording software refuses to burn the image because of the file
extension, rename the file. If it refuses to burn the image because of the
file contents, file a bug against the CD recording software.
The distributed image file is a perfectly normal sector-by-sector image like
any other "ISO" file. It does not contain an ISO9660 file system; instead
it contains an Apple Partition Map and a HFS+ file system. That's what is
needed to make Mac systems boot from it.
