I would like to install Ubuntu on an older Macbook Pro. The hard drive recently failed so I have a replacement. I'm hoping I can just install Ubuntu and not muck around with MacOS.
The Ubuntu installer (17.10.1) boots without a problem and the install completes successfully. However, upon rebooting I get a folder with a flashing question mark. Holding down the option key to boot does not reveal any bootable devices.
Is there any way to get Ubuntu booting on this system (that does not involve installing MacOS)?
