    System-bootfinder not found

    Hello,
    unable to boot on dual mode on my macbook 2008 , 10.6.8 snow leopard, dual mode, ubuntu 16.04 LTS
    There is only the message: "System-bootfinder not found .Creating boot entry 0009.
    Load image failed."

    How to recover the EFI of the Apple HFS partition?

    Thanks in advance

    A little more info, please. Are you trying to get into Ubuntu or into MacOS? "boot on dual mode" doesn't mean anything to me. Do you mean it has dual boot capability?
    Which OS CAN you boot into? Or neither?
    Look here:

    I could resolve the booting issue on the ubuntu partition, but I can't
    boot from my 10.6. 8. dvd. There is a message:"Kernel panic
    at booting," followed by many digits.

    "Kernel panic at booting" from OSX is . . . "not good" . . . it generally means there is "corruption" in the system . . . soft or hardware--the system determines it is "unsafe or unable to boot the computer." Might be that the HDD is "dying"?? Do you have SMARTReporter installed in either OSX or ubuntu?? There is a linux app that has a similar name and it does give more details on the state of the drive.

    Question is if you are trying to boot the "10.6.8 dvd" why is it not booting into the installer???

    I have an '09 MBP and I replaced the HDD with an SSD at least a year or so back . . . it's pretty easy to do that . . . of course you'd have to re-install ubuntu . . . . Otherwise there isn't too much "support" around for 10.6.8 . . . I have a "triple boot" install in my 500 GB SSD . . . I also still have the OEM 10.6.8 in one smaller partition, a 10.11 (max upgrade w/o patcher) and possibly Manjaro MATE in the third . . . .

    Good luck with it.

    I have this issue since i tried Qubuntu 20.4. on a live USB flash drive.
    There was a system crash and later I could not boot, neither on Ubuntu nor
    on Mac partitions.

    It was easy to restore the Ubuntu partition thanks to Linux boot-repair. But as to
    the 10.6. 8. partition the log in failed though I used the DVD.

    Is there a boot repair for Mac similar to Linux boot repair?

    Many thanks in advance

    Aldo
