I installed 10.04LTS on my 2007 iMac (which already has BootCamp and Windows XP) according to the instruction listed: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MactelSupportTeam/AppleIntelInstallation
Now, when I select the Linux boot from rEFIt, I get a boot error: something like "no boot....."
I did a Partition Inspector analysis using rEFIt and this is what it brings back:
*** Report for internal hard disk *** Current GPT partition table: # Start LBA End LBA Type 1 40 409639 EFI System (FAT) 2 409640 134871711 Mac OS X HFS+ 3 134873088 136970239 Linux Swap 4 558252072 625142407 Basic Data 5 136970240 558252031 Basic Data Current MBR partition table: # A Start LBA End LBA Type 1 1 409639 ee EFI Protective 2 409640 134871711 af Mac OS X HFS+ 3 134873088 136970239 82 Linux swap / Solaris 4 * 558252072 625142407 0c FAT32 (LBA) MBR contents: Boot Code: Unknown, but bootable Partition at LBA 40: Boot Code: None (Non-system disk message) File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 1, type EFI System (FAT) Partition at LBA 409640: Boot Code: None File System: HFS Extended (HFS+) Listed in GPT as partition 2, type Mac OS X HFS+ Listed in MBR as partition 2, type af Mac OS X HFS+ Partition at LBA 134873088: Boot Code: None File System: Unknown Listed in GPT as partition 3, type Linux Swap Listed in MBR as partition 3, type 82 Linux swap / Solaris Partition at LBA 558252072: Boot Code: Windows NTLDR File System: FAT32 Listed in GPT as partition 4, type Basic Data Listed in MBR as partition 4, type 0c FAT32 (LBA), active Partition at LBA 136970240: Boot Code: GRUB File System: ext4 Listed in GPT as partition 5, type Basic Data
How can I get my Linux partition to boot?
