[SOLVED] rEFIt and Ubuntu 8.10
I singlebooted Ubuntu 8.04 on my Macbook 2,1 for a while and now I suppose I am going over to the dark side and dual booting.
I have a fresh install of OS X 10.4.10 on a 20GB partition and I have the remaining 90 GB as free space.
I tried to follow the community docs method for dual booting and downloaded and installed rEFIt, then installed Ubuntu on my free partition and selected GRUB to be installed on /dev/sda. However, when I rebooted my Mac hung and all I got was a blinking folder with a question mark inside. I have read some posts about somehow syncing the partition tables, but I couldn't even get to a menu after installing Ubuntu. So, I wiped everything and my current setup is as follows:
20GB Mac OS X (what I'm running right now)
96GB Free space
How should I install things in order to dual boot correctly? Linux is all that I know, so if it involves messing around with OS X, I might need some additional help.
Thanks in advance!
