If geeks love it, we’re on it
You found the friendliest gaming & tech geeks around. Say hello!
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 Type
1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT)

Any ideas why linux wont start up?
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.
