I has a dual boot system with MacOSX 10.8.2 and Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium x64. I would like to install Ubuntu alongside the two existing operating systems for cross platform development purposes. My System specs are listed below.

  • iMac 21.5-inch (mid 2011)
  • Intel Core i7 @2.80GHz
  • AMD Radeon HD 6770M
  • Facetime HD Internet Camera
  • Thunderbolt port
  • Wireless Airport adapter card
  • Apple 8x Superdrive
  • Apple Magic Mouse and wired keyboard with numeric keypad

Will rEFIt install properly on my machine too?

Thanks you very much for the help.
