    Question Macbook with Hardy 8.04 - Unable to find boot disk - Insert any disk and...

    Hello all,

    Sorry to make my first post here a cry for help, but I ran into some trouble trying to install Ubuntu with OS X on my Macbook.

    First, using the OS X discs I formatted my old installation, and created two partitions.

    The first one obviously contained OS X, and I was planning on having Ubuntu in the second.

    I put the Ubuntu disc in, restarted, held down C to boot from CD, and blah blah followed the installation.

    I followed what the Macbook/Ubuntu wiki said and formatted my partition to ext3 and mounted at /.

    But after installation, using rEFIt, when I choose to boot to Linux, I simpy get an error which says something along the lines of

    "Unable to find boot disk - Insert disk to continue and press any key."

    But when I then put in the Ubunutu CD, in hopes of trying to fix this, pressing any amount of keys amounts to nothing, have to a hard shut down.

    I have tried to find a solution to this myself, but my google-fu is weak.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Sorry, the message actually says

    No boot disk found - Insert disk and press any key to continue.
