ReFit hangs on windows logo [Solved]

My ReFit was hanging on the windows logo on my macbook pro when I would boot into windows.

I was having problems with windows explorer crashing every 5 seconds anyway so I plugged in my boot thumbdrive and reset (reformatted) windows.

However, refit would STILL hang on the windows logo even after a clean install. If I held down option when booting I could use Apple’s menu to get to Windows, but not via Refit.

Finally, I tried unplugging everything from my macbook, including the external mouse, SD card, and external monitor.

Now it boots fine! Hopefully this saves someone from reformatting like I did when it was just a hardware conflict. I have read other reports of USB hubs and other peripherals also causing refit to hang.
