    I wish I could be of more help.

    Good luck

    It was working on the mac os, but I formatted it and now it won't work. It's strange that it's so hard to install Ubuntu on a mac, after all, all macs have the same hardware! (or almost)
    I'll try some more, and I'll just install mac os again if Ubuntu don't work. I would love it to work though, as I miss Ubuntu!

    can you still boot your default mac OS in order to rule out hardware failure?

    Probably, but then I have to install it again, which I probably won't.

    I got these error messages now, though:
    drm: intel_parse_bio vbt signature missing
    drm: intel_dsm_pci_probe failed to get supported _dsm functions
    drm: intel_dsm_pci_probe failed to get supported _dsm functions

    Just wanted to say that it works now! I just ran it on the live cd first, then installed, and it worked!
