Mac won't boot ubuntu installation disk
Okay so I'm having a very strange problem.
I have a 2007 21 inch Intel Mac and I am trying to install Ubuntu 11.10 alongside my mac os. I have sucessfully done this on this same exact machine before with the same installation disk but for various reasons I removed the installation I had.
When I turn on my machine with the installation disk in it, rEFIt recognizes the linux disk but when I try to load it, it freezes on the linux icon and remains there indefinitely.
To try to fix the problem I burned another copy of the installation disk and even wiped my entire hard drive and reinstalled mac but I am still having the same problem.
It seems very mysterious to me because I have definitely gotten this to work before and even after wiping my hard drive it still won't work. Any help you can give would be amazing.
