    Re: Macpro 4,1 Quad core Intel Xeon

    Thanks for all the hints!

    Unfortunately I just had to abandon the project, as the amount of time I can spend on this is limited. I just couldn't get my MacPro to recognize either the CD drive or the hard drive. Using external CD drives I came a but further but I cannot do anything when my hard drive or hard drive driver, are not detected.

    So for now I go with fink and other tweaks to make my MacPro usable for science!

    the first one deals with multiple hard drives and fedora. It seems that the Linux installation program actually recogninzed his hardrives during installation. When he then booted he got problems with rEFIt. I cannot finish installation because my harddrive is not recognized during the installation.

    The second one was quite old, using a kernel from some years ago. I could probably upgrade this after the installation, or just use a newer one, but I really wanted to get (K)ubuntu on it. Not a plain debian.

    But thanks anyway!
