    Stuck on apple logo

    So I'm trying to install Ubuntu onto my Mac Mini from a usb. I followed Ubuntu's formal documentation and when I tried to boot from the usb it gave me the legacy error. Well I read that that was a problem here, https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Ma...elInstallation, so I used the code
    Code:
    bless --device /dev/disk1s1 --setBoot --legacy
    I used diskutil list to see that my usb was disk1s1. Now that I've done that when I reboot I am just staring at the apple logo. It use to start with rEFIt and I could try to boot from the usb or boot OSX from the hdd.

    I don't even know where to start now because all i can do is stare at the white screen with the apple logo and it cycles with a null sign.

    I would greatly appreciate it if anyone could help me out.

    Try holding Alt when you boot up then choose rEFIT

    I've tried holding alt, alt+c, command, command+c, c, and other various key combinations. The problem happens with or without the live cd plugged in. rEFIt does not show up at all. I can not boot from the usb drive. I actually think something is wrong with the EFI, but I don't really know anything about it.

    And I can't take it into the Apple store till Sunday because of the IPad launch.
