    Boots Black screen

    Hi.
    Iím new to this and haphazardly formatted my old Macbook Pro to run Ubuntu recently.
    It worked for a bit, I got the wifi to work and installer a bunch of other drivers, next time I booted it all i got is a Black screen and a cd-drive Sound.
    After an exhaustive search, Iím fairly sure itís the same EFI issue as describes here:
    https://discussions.apple.com/thread/5051884
    My question is: How do I get it to boot from the boot menu or any other way to boot from a usb drive?
    I have tried all of the ĎFí-keys, esc, right and left shift, cmd, alt and a few recommended combinations.
    Halp!

    Did you try booting with just the alt/option key? What shows up?

    I thought I had tried that, but gave it a go anyway, and now it boots just fine. What a relief!
    And thank you!
