View Full Version : [ubuntu] Install error on my Macbook Pro 4,1 (Ibex)

I've partitioned the drive and installed rEFIt. I'm also aware of the MBR wipe bug and how to avoid it.

After I boot from the CD, select the language and hit "Install", the screen shows the following error messages:

[ 0.326075] ACPI: Aborted because of junk in compressed archive
[ 0.988194] i8042c : No controller found
[ 1.369651] crc error
[ 1.406823] Kernel panic - not syncing: VFS: unable to mount root fs on unknown block (8,1)

The machine is unresponsive after that.

This is my first Linux install, so I may be unfamiliar with terms. Thanks in advance for your help!

Can anybody help? I only have OS X, so i can't set up a bootable USB flash drive using syslinux.
