As I was installing Ubuntu 16.04 on a late 2009 iMac, the whole system froze while it was about 90%. after waiting for 15 mins, I decided to restart my computer.
Now when I turn on my computer, ubuntu doesnt fully boot. I get to the loading screen and then the screen does black.
The problem is, that during the installation process, I selected for Ubuntu to replace OSX, and as a result, I think it deleted the EFI partition required to load the Mac Startup Manager.
So now I can't hold the option key and select another disk to boot from, and hence re attempt the installation process. I feel like my Mac is bricked.
BTW my optical drive is broken, so I cant restore OSX that way either. What can I do? Any Ideas? Thanks.
