fortillian said:So I followed your directions explicitly. My only problem is that if i select to boot ubuntu, refit fades and i see the penquin and then nothing happens. It doesnt boot linux. I have the same setup as you. Macbook Pro 15" 2.5ghz. Vista-64bit Ultimate and Ubuntu 8.04. Windows Vista runs great, and OS X runs the same. Where did i go wrong? on rEFIt Partitioning tool i see Current GPT Partition Table# Start LBA End LBA Type1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT)2 409640 465715239 Mac OS X HFS+3 465977384 524571133 Basic Data4 524571134 620936368 Basic Data5 620936369 625142414 Linux Swap Current MBR partition table:#A Start LBA End LBA Type1 1 409639 EE EFI Protective2 409640 465715239 AF Mac OS X HFS+3 465977384 524571133 07 NTFS/HPFS4 524571134 620936368 83 Linux Status: Tables are synchronized, no need to sync. Any ideas why linux wont start up?
Snarkasm said:The desktop install CD is definitely loads better than it used to be - even I switched off of the alternate installer for 10.04. Congrats on a sweet triple boot - Win7, OSX, and Ubuntu all in one machine is a very nice powerhouse.Any reason you went with 32-bit Ubuntu over x64? Just wondering.
