Hi,
I moved a iso of ubuntu 10.10 to my 4gb usb drive and then moved the boot folder with grub, here i set the files to the 10.10 ubuntu and changed the endings of initrd files to lz. now i tried booting the ubuntu iso via the fake bios. it started and ran codes. until a colored solid bar was in the upper half of my screen. then the bar disappeared again. the last code was:

(14:0028944):fb: conflicting fb nw usage nouveaufb vs EFI VGA - removing generic driver
then i waited about 10min, but nothing happened anymore. so im guessing its something with the graphics, or some sort

Info:
a late 2008, early 2009 macbookpro with reffit.




Here is my grub.cfg:
