    Re: Intel Mac (Mactel) FAQ

    I hope this is appropriate thread to ask.

    Is it possible to install Ubuntu on Macbook (I have 2,1 Macbook, I think, 2.1Core2Duo, Intel, black, 1G RAM, bought in summer 2007) without installing OS X?

    As far as I figured out, EFI partition is something that must exist, but still don't get all things.

    Thank You in advance for any kind of answer.

    You do not have to have a GPT formatted disk. (i.e. don't have to have the EFI partition.)

    The second topic in the FAQ deals with how you can install:

    I have managed to install only Ubuntu on macbook. Problem was that I was constantly trying to install Ubuntu on some partition scheme that wasn't good. Then I made new partition scheme by selecting msdos type, and then normally made partitions from installer, and everything works like a charm.

    There's, dough, that problem with ~30 sec grey screen before GRUB shows up when booting system, but I can live with that.

    There is also a question about that. You need to bless the Ubuntu partition.

    How do you mean "bless it"? Bring a priest? Kidding, of course. Any tutorial how to do that, maybe?

    please read the installation wiki:
    https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ma...elInstallation

    I don't know how it will interact with Windows 7 since it is still a beta OS
