Re: Boot loader issue with MacBook Pro 5,1 Ubuntu install
I had the same problem as you. First time I installed Lucid I shose /dev/sda and nuked my hard drive. Decided to try a different distro because I was so pissed at Ubuntu.
I did a full write up with pics on my blog. Although it outlines installing Linux Mint, the process is exactly the same for Ubuntu. Hope it helps.
15" MacBook Pro 5,1 (2.8Ghz)
Dual-Booting: Mac OS X 10.6 / Ubuntu 11.04 64-bit
