    Bootpicker/deploystudio - ntfs 'dirty' - win blinking cursor

    I've not come across this before using 'refit' but I've found that refit messes with 'efi' and therefore wake etc does not work - I've tried bootpicker which seems to work well and is pretty good; the pictures for each OS are pretty handy for users also.

    Anyway, all was fine on the machine I used to create images (mini) and now since deploying to another machine (imac) the machine boots to OSX (bootpicker) and automatically reboots into windows, the OS never appears however - just the dreaded blinking cursor on a black screen.

    At this point I'm thinking something weird is going on so I re-imaged the original machine and got the same symptoms, next I tried a verbose boot and noticed a message saying 'ntfs partition is dirty' - what can I do about this when I cant get into windows?

    What on earth is causing this?

    Seems deploy studio rc19 doesn't play nice with ntfs / ntfs images - rolled back to rc18 and all seems to be well.
