I am trying to dual boot Ubuntu 13.04 on my MacBook and despite selecting the same partition as the Ubuntu root partition to install the bootloader, it installs Grub to the EFI partition under /EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi. The EFI partition is being mounted by Ubuntu under /boot/efi.
I want to install Ubuntu 13.10 in my MacBookPro. I am running Mountain Lion in my mac. I want to run both Mountain Lion and Ubuntu 13.10 in My mac. How to install ubuntu in my macbook without affecting existing data and OS with dual boot feature ?
I recently switched my old 2006 I believe MacBook to Ubuntu because I wanted to try it out for a couple of things. I decided to reformat since I didn't have the space to dual-boot, but now when I want Snow Leopard back for my MacBook it doesn't let me install. It asks what disk I want to install to, but none show up. Any help? Thanks.
I'm going to describe my problem in full, and then ask the question for the solution that I think I've come up with. If someone has a better different way to do this, that would be much appreciated as well.
I am installing Ubuntu 13.10 onto a Macbook pro 9.2 I have done this twice before, with the caveat being that, when I did this before, I just set up a dual boot.
So, yesterday I installed ubuntu on my Macbook, I removed all the partitions and made only one for Ubuntu, so I don't have OSX installed anymore.
I used it for a while and noticed the battery doesn't last as long as on OSX, so I tried some fixes from askubuntu.com and now it's kinda ****** up and I just wanted to reinstall ubuntu, or install OSX or lubuntu.
Today i endly decide to put a Linux in dual boot on my macbook 7.1
I parted the HDD with Gparted like this :
refit / MacOSX / boot / root / home
I installed Arch succefully, folowing the tuto about the macbook specific install.
When it ends with the bootloader install screen i get an issue, i simply can't select the boot(/dev/sda3) partition to install GRUB in it - it only propose sda..
