Ubuntu 10.04 livecd won't boot on mac pro
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 14, 2011
I am trying to set up a quadruple boot on a brand new Mac Pro: Mac OS, Windows, Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit, and Ubuntu 10.04 64-bit. The goal is to explore programming with certain PCI cards and various software we need to work with.
While this may seem daunting, I am having trouble getting off the ground. Creating partitions is straightforward, but the main problem I am encountering is that my Ubuntu 10.04 32-bit liveCD will not boot the machine. When I boot from CD, I get the console screen with the initial messages, then I get the graphical screen with the Ubuntu logo and the five red and white dots. Then it goes black.
If I hit enter, I can hear the CD-ROM drive springing to life, but with nothing on the monitor, I can't proceed. Yes, I suppose I should stretch out with my feelings, use the force, and make it go, but I am no jedi.
The machine is a 2x 2.4 GHz quad-core Xeon with a 2560x1440 LED Cinema display. Any suggestions for getting the liveCD to drive the display? Thanks.
Ubuntu 10.04 64bit Mac Pro 1,1
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 28, 2011
I did some searching and could not find much to help me with my issue. I am trying to install Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit on its own hard drive in a separate bay on a Mac Pro 1,1. I have Mac OS installed on the first drive right now (mainly because I can't successfully load any other OS on this particular machine).
I have tried doing booting with and without rEFIt, result is the same. After installing Ubuntu, I cannot boot up - just get the flashing underscore.
I found this https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacPro - but it isn't as well documented as some other community pages - found no help here.
If anyone could help me out I would appreciate it. But definitely need 64 bit because I have a lot of RAM in here.
ubuntu studio on mac pro 2006
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: April 1, 2013
Hi, I want to install ubuntu studio on a mac pro 2006. The machine does not have apple os on it and I cannot boot the 64 bit cd due to the mac pro efi being 32 bit. I have installed the 32 bit version of the raring beta and the drive is partitioned as hybrid efi gpt with a 500mb efi partition available at sda2 and a 500mb boot partition at sda3 with swap and sda4 holding the usual. Now that I have the system running, is it possible to convert it to 64 bit buy installing a generic 64bit kernel and libraries?
Many thanks in advance
about install ubuntu on mac pro

How many ways can I do to install the ubuntu system on my mac pro?
I have already got a win7 on my boot camp. I guess I can use the wubi to install a ubuntu to my mac pro. Does this really work?
Some people mentioned that ubuntu 11 will make mac pros unable to boot or do some damage to mac pros' EFI. So, do I need to instal ubuntu 10 instead of 11?
Thank you for your suggestions~
Installing Ubuntu to 2006 Mac Pro 1,1
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 13, 2015
Hi all. I'm new to the forums but pretty familiar with Ubuntu. However, I'm hoping to get a good discussion going on how to install Ubuntu to a 2006 Mac Pro 1,1. This machine is setup with 16GBs of RAM and two 3.0Ghz Quad-Core processors. I know that the 32-bit EFI chip is going to cause me some problems. But, it's important to me because I have 4 of these machines currently running OS X 10.7 and they work extremely well. I just know that eventually I'm going to need an alternative OS as I can't (easily) go past 10.7.
Here's my hope:1) Install Ubuntu 14 as the sole OS (I don't need any other operating systems for my purposes). I'm willing to go down to the last LTS version if needed.
2) A decently reliable installation - these are used as workstations in my company and basically run nothing but web-based software. But they are used for work purposes and I'm hoping to have them be pretty solid for daily use.
I've read a few different posts and webpages regarding installation going bac

Are there any instructions available for dual booting Ubuntu 12.04 with Mac OS snow leopard? (All the instructions I am finding so far, are either for more recent Mac versions or older Ubuntu, so any help would be most appreciated, thanks).
Ubuntu Mac Edition?

Can someone explain this to me: http://cdimages.ubuntu.com/releases/oneiric/release/
It seems that the very first download is tweaked for installing on Mac hardware. How did I not come across this before?
Are there any major differences? Could I get a list of what's different? Is it possible to patch my current Ubuntu install with the CD?

The i386 bit is obvious, but I was wondering if anyone has got Ubuntu working on a MacBook Pro--considering things like EFI?

[SOLVED] Linux and the Mac Pro
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 3, 2011
First of all I am very new to Linux though I have been working with the Mac and Windows platforms for a few decades now. I am hoping this forum can help me with a particular problem I have been having. I have a late edition Mac Pro and need to install Linux (RedHat, CentOS, or Ubuntu) to run a particular piece of software. The computer itself is a 12 Core system with 24GB RAM and has one SSD drive (512GB) and two standard SATA 1TB drives, so there is plenty of workspace. The trouble I have been having is with the bootloader, I think. After having completed the Linux OS installation on the computer, trying different Linux flavors, it refuses to boot into Linux. I have tried making the Linux OS the only operating system on the computer and it still refuses to boot. I have also tried using the boot manager “rEFit” and as I have also tried what I found from some sites, (link to one example) ([URL="http://consultancy.edvoncken.net/index.php/HOWTO_Install_CentOS_on_a_MacBook_Pro"
