I now want to install Ubuntu Server on it as I am not super comfortable in OS X Server. My problem is that while I can make a bootable install usb (using UNetbootin or usb-creator-gtk) and get to the install menu of it I can't get the installer to start. I am fairly sure that this is due to lack of graphics drivers. I can get the thing to install from a "Mini" install ISO which doesn't have the graphical installer but for some reason that never boots once it's installed.

Or can you edit the install command to exclude the graphics?
