no boot after install
March 09, 2008 01:57AM

I have a macbook that's been running on ubuntu for a while (no macOS). I am looking for something fresh and I am very interested in elive for macbook. The livecd works pretty well. What I want to try is a clean single boot install of elive. macOS uninstalled I can't do what is said at the beginning of the installer (partitioning and configuring boot loader from macOS). I guess that is why I can't boot on anything after installing (I only have 1 or 2 lines at the prompt, something about grub that can't load if I remember well). There was no special warning or message during install (simple install with a 10 Gb "/" partition, a separate "/home" and 2 Gb of swap).. Some help someone please? thanks

I've seen this post that looks very similar : [forum.elivecd.org]

but I don't really understand some of the things said. and when I run the gptsync command I have an error saying that there is no gpt table on my disk.

After installing the development version 1.9.18 it canĀ“t boot because only display the Ram Test and doesn't appear the elive.
I have installed elive over an existing Ubuntu 8.10 partition.
