View Full Version : [all variants] Triboot with external hard drive - legacy OS ??

July 3rd, 2009, 10:52 PM
I have installed Kubuntu 9.04/64 (later upgrading to the alphas) on a 1TB WD external hard drive. The hard drive was already split in two; i used the smallest one and chomped it for "/", "/home" and the swap.

Here's the background:
* I am using my early 2008 Macbook (2GHz,4GB,X3100,80GB),
* which has both Mac OS and Windows inside the internal hard drive.
* I haven't touched the internal hard drive.
* installed boot loader (assuming GRUB 1.x)

The bloat: rEFIt won't boot Kubuntu - accused of being "legacy OS" and firmware not compatible, iara iara… here's the image:http://web2.twitpic.com/img/15551495-0d74f751478126ff01d9353816bcdcb7.4a4f49c1-scaled.jpg

Has anyone been through this before? How am I supposed to solve this issue?

Thanks for the help!
