Grub won't load (ubuntu server 12.10 on MacBookPro5,5)
I'm trying to install ubuntu-server-amd64+mac ver 12.10 on a MacBookPro 5,5.
after installation, booting ubuntu hangs during grub.
the steps i have taken:
A) i installed refit
B) i used diskutil to partition the drive as:
1) EFI partition - didn't touch it
2) mac's original HFS+ partition
4) another FAT partition used to transfer files between osx and ubuntu
C) i ran (server) install cd (i verified the checksum after downloading it and burned it with diskutil)
D) i have no swap and chose to simply install root (/) on /dev/sda3 (after formatting it with ext3)
E) i chose to not install grub to the mbr but rather to /dev/sda3
F) i re-synced the partitions with refit
now when choosing to boot from the "windows" partition (/dev/sda3) grub writes
on the screen followed by a blinking cursor.
do i have to reinstall grub somehow?
