View Full Version : [ubuntu] No Idea How to Boot on Mac...

November 19th, 2012, 10:08 AM
Hi Everyone,

My husband is the Ubuntu genus who happened to go away for 2 weeks for work. I need to get onto our computer, but I forget to ask him how to boot the computer. :confused:

I've read to hold down the ALT key, and this is what happens:

When I power on I get a blank white screen --> then I hit ALT/Option key, and the screen turns black with a flashing line at the top left.

When I hold down the ALT key and THEN power on --> I get the blank white screen and nothing more.

I know he doesn't plug anything in or install any CD when he loads the computer, so I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

Help would be greatly appreciated. :)
