  1. Re: Remove GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2 from Macbook Pro

    Well I accidentally got it sorted out.

    After closing the laptop lid to put the computer to sleep a few hours ago (was booted into OS X), I came back and upon opening the lid was met with the...
  2. Re: Remove GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2 from Macbook Pro

    ares3, would you mind sharing the steps you took to remove your Ubuntu installation? I have very little experience with partitions on OS X and using Disk Utility. I've attached a screenshot of my...
  3. Re: [ubuntu] Macbook Pro 11,1 (2013 Haswell Retina)

    Yes, that is the guide I followed. You will end up using GRUB instead of rEFIt/rEFInd. Read through this thread to see the problems you will probably face. Suspend/resume is the most problematic, but...
  4. Re: Remove GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2 from Macbook Pro

    I assume it's not a common issue because most of the dual-boot instructions tell you to use rEFIt/rEFInd rather than GRUB. Unfortunately there doesn't seem to be one canonical (pun intended) source...
  5. Re: Remove GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2 from Macbook Pro

    I was hoping to find the same answer! I followed the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro11-1/Saucy to install 14.04 and boot via GRUB, but now I want to go back to OS X only....
  6. Re: [ubuntu] Macbook Pro 11,1 (2013 Haswell Retina)

    In what way does yours not work? I seem to be the only one having the problem where closing the lid does nothing at all. Everyone else seems to have the problem where resuming just shows a black...

    In my case, I only have the Intel card.
  8. Re: [ubuntu] Macbook Pro 11,1 (2013 Haswell Retina)

    I followed the instructions at https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacBookPro11-1/Saucy and successfully installed 14.04 on my MBP 11,2 a couple days ago.

    Short version: Sleep/suspend do not work....

  11. [ubuntu] Realtek wireless in 12.04 will randomly stop working, must restart computer

    Thank you!

    Since I have them installed on separate drives, I believe the bootloaders are separate as well. As I have it right now, when I boot up and get to GRUB I'm given the option of booting...
