    No it wont go right to refind unless I hold the option key seems like it wants to go right to my internal that has ubuntu on it. Hmmm maybe wipe the internal clean then try with rebooting with just the usb in?

    Still confused about needing to convert the .iso to .dmg seems to work the same both ways and yes I have tried each time going both routes.

    Hold the key, open refind, and then try to launch the installer.

    don't worry about the conversion it probably doesn't affect anything.

    Yup tried that it just goes to black right away. And I just figured I would try both ways anyhow just in case the conversion did matter. Didn't want to waste all this time due to being to lazy to do the convert!!

    I downloaded and attempted to test the buntu mac iso but for some reason it doesnt even show up for me.

    I don't think there's much else you can do, did you try fallback mode on the regular iso ? that would be the last thing i would try.

    i would try it now and either try another distro, or just burn the backup back into the macbook main drive overnight.

    Yes I tried the fallback on the regular iso as well as the 12.04 release. Oh well no ubuntu for me back to osx thanks for the help I really appreciate the time you have spent trying to help. Maybe the Macbook pro 3,1 should be put in an incompatible list somewhere. Thanks again Cheers!
