Obviously not an ideal solution, but at least more predictable to get into Ubuntu.
    I use rEFInd and have not had any problem like this.

    I'll try that next time I reboot, although with suspend/resume working so well now I rarely do that

    Forgive me for most of these posts went right over my head.
    What is the state of this install? Is there a guide anywhere detailing what to do? I assume refit is still necessary.

    Thanks for indulging a noobie.

    i downloaded mint 14 (essentially ubuntu 12.10) .. burnt to DVD .. installed via external DVD player ... everything seems perfect except:

    1. the stupid apple start-up gong sound
    2. i have the start-up white screen delay for 15 seconds

    Boot into OSX and mute the sound, when you restart there will be no gong.

    Use boot-repair to install an UEFI boot loader, haven't tried on mint myself only Ubuntu 12.10.
