[ubuntu] installation problem on iMac 9,1 EFI live usb won't boot
It's a shame Corsair is still Linux-unfriendly even after Microsoft itself claims to have made a U-turn but their Libre software animosity in things like SecureBoot remains. I was able to determine the firmware in the SSD is current so I'll let those experiments sit for now, especially if I can find a nice Microsoft home for the drive and not have to worry about it again.

Posting Rules. This would be my first shot if OSX is still running. Any thoughts on that? Just tried this on a late mbp 2. Yeah no problem, thanks for all the clarification anyways. Just to clear that up: Are you suggesting to leave Mint and go with one of the older K Ubuntu distributions, as those worked for you I have been considering that anyways ; or just install K Ubuntu first to have a platform from where to install Mint?
I have refind installed on mac osx, comes up at boot up prompt — not much of use unless the usb flash goes into action. The usb flash drive does show up — but doesnt do much yet -but havent used this tutorial yet. I Have similar mac like yours still works ok. Understand everything else on tutorial but the install rEFInd part. Im on a mac Its just that there are so many tutorials out there and they are all different — some the same — not working for me.
Got it going and thank you for the info. Didnt install it yet but got to the nice screen and it ask if you want to install. Can see why people like it so much — eye candy. Know how to install rEFInd. On the startup when booting up mac i hold down the alt — options key and presents boot options. I went with Kubuntu Thank you! This did the trick for me on a 2,1. Could not make it work with boot.
Thank you for this great article. It allows to put more then one image on a single USB drive and select them on boot. I put a new SSD, unformated as the previous one fried, into a macbook pro a and when I try to access the boot menu I get as far as a grey screen and a cursor and then then it stops. Its not frozen because the cursor moves, my usb is formatted as you describe.
Has anyone else had this problem? Thank you. Ubuntu loaded presenting itself to install on my brand-new clean SSD. While I might have done a dual-boot just for fun, there seemed no point since os-x This tutorial has been a lifesaver. I guess the secret is the boot. I am able to boot into ubuntu I prepared my USB pendive on a Linux machine, but I suppose using a console on MacOS should work, possibly with slightly different commands, depending on the packages you have installed.
This tutorial got me a few steps further. When using the bit efi file rEFInd displays the boot option. I guess my computer is 32 bit at least in the startup process. The prompt is placed in the root of the boot. Have tried a few different Ubuntu 64 bit ISOs. My macbook is a 64 bit system, but the EFI architecture is 32 bit. Could I use the 32 bit efi boot file with a 64 bit disk image?
This might have been an issue on my part, but rEFind seemed impossible to install using a 32 bit version of linux. Please report back if you do. I was able to get rEFind installed using your tutorial and it seems to be functioning correctly. I tested this with Ubuntu 64 as boot. It got to the grub prompt.

I succesfully booted from the Kubuntu Backup important content from your drive — it will be erased. Make one large partition on your USB flash drive, using e. Format the partition with FAT Alternatively, you can type mkfs. Copy either bootIA Copy the downloaded LiveCD image to the new directory, and rename it to boot.

I apologise, I was offline for a few days. Ade says:. Thanks for the great tutorial! Everything I tried before was more shooting in the dark. Thanks for documenting this a bit more thoroughly than some of the others out there. Tried this with Mint 17 Cinnamin.
