I just put Ubuntu 12.04 on an old Macbook Pro that was claimed by a MAC repair place to be dead. Well, Ubuntu breathed new life into it. I put in an SSD. and it's running very peppy. But when I power up, the Mac plays the happy noise, and then sits for about 30 seconds before the screen goes black and the vmlinux image boots.
I suspect this is some sort of bootloader issue, but I'm not sure what to change. Any ideas I could try? This is a single image (no dual boot or Bootcamp).
It's on a Samsung 500GB SSD, so once it starts loading the system is up in less than 10 seconds.
