    Looking for an EFI 18.04 ISO image for my Mac Pro 5,1 (2010)

    Hey all. I'm presently running 16.04 on a 2010 Mac Pro, and it works great! I want to install 18.04 on a blank hard drive instead of upgrade, and I am having trouble finding an EFI/Mac installer image for ubuntu 18.04. I remember that I was able to install 16.04 with a Mac image... Further, I am running a AMD RX 570, so accessing the EFI menu (Hold option/Alt on boot) I believe will not work. Can anybody point me in the right direction?

    Thanks!

    The Mac/power pc images are not listed for 18.04 and though find them earlier releases. Mac images are mentioned on the download page but there is no link and nothing appears in alternative downloads either.

    Most Macs with Intel processors will work with either 64-bit or Mac images. If the 64-bit image doesn't work, try the Mac image.

    Point of order: The 2009-2010 Mac Pros (4,1 and 5,1 models) are Intel Xeon-based. The only difference between this hardware and anything else is the EFI requirement. This is pre-UEFI, and Mac just had to be different.

    I can download 16.04 and to an upgrade, but I would prefer to just do one installation. Any suggestions?

    Many with Mac like rEFInd.

    I do have and have used rEFInd to boot my PC when it has major issues.
