I am very frustrated. I been trying for almost 2 weeks to put Ubuntu on my Macbook (2,1) mid-2007 13" laptop. My combo drive does not work anymore. I tried the USB stick install method where u make a bootable ubuntu usb from the OSX terminal. I installed rEFIt and tried to boot from the usb stick (kingston 8gb). It gives me some error like "no bootable device found and press any key". I have tried the Mac specific amd64 iso and the regular iso and it's a no go. I get the same blank black screen with the annoying error message. What am I doing wrong? Please help. I want Ubuntu on my macbook with Lion! :(
