I run on an intel core 2 duo late 2009 imac 21.5"
I have rEFIt installed which changes boot camp (efi or w.e) to show a triple os boot, mac, windows, and linux.
I want to install to my WD Elements 2TB external HDD but it never works, i've been through some techniques in the installation to get it to work.
So.. i install boot loader (grub) to sdb like i should, sdb has root, boot, and swap partitions (as well as free space).. dw boot has at least 258mb.
When i reach the end of the setup where it tells me to restart my computer i hit that, then it comes to a black screen showing logging information, closing processes and whatnot, then the mac ejects the installation disc and tells me to hit enter to restart.
EVERY FRICKEN TIME i do this (from installing) it freezes as SOON as i hit enter ;'(! So i have to force-off my mac and reboot. I've tried rebooting with and without rEFIt cd but still (unless i hold alt (or option for you mac users) it goes to the rEFIt treiple boot screen, it shows linux so i click that, and it boots up windows instead.. WTF? Can someone please help, otherwise i'll be turned off linux or ubuntu :(
[EDIT:] Sorry for this being too long for some people, really, it's not that long ;)
