Problem I have is that when I run through the install procedure I do not get the “Install Alongside OS X” option. I have an IMac 21.5” mid 2011 running OS X Yosemite 10.10.2 Version of Ubuntu I wish to to install for dual boot is 14.04.01.
Followed this procedure described on howtogeek:
A bit of info around the procedure.
- I have installed reFInd
- Created bootable USB stick using this procedure.
Reduced partition size of existing mac hd using disk utility. Left the 100Gb space as “Free Space” - note I have also repeated the procedure twice adding a partition and formatting as FAT and then changing Free Space
Booting MAC brings me to reFInd fine but I see 4 icons, not the 2 icons I was expecting.
Select UBUNTU icon and continue
The once install starts I select "Install UBUNTU". The next options confirm enough disk space is available and a connection to the internet exists.
Then I have the problem. No "Install Alongside OSX" option.
So I have looked at the "Something Else" option. I see the 100Gb of FREE SPACE is listed so I wonder what to do next.
So you can see I am stuck. Anyone know a fix?
