neither gparted in CB live session nor CB install will give a formating.

Re: No boot after installation - Macbook Pro 1.1 Intel Duo Core 2006

no dual boot pls.

can you please tell me any way to sweep my disk again?

Disk Utilities like Gparted and Testdisk find 465GB after CB.
Those 465GB are not usable. How can i get the 35GB back? They are not detected...

Re: No boot after installation - Macbook Pro 1.1 Intel Duo Core 2006

Well, @ohnonot, I can't understand why do you format a disk by writing some random data on it - that would takes hours to get done when that is unnecessary (unless you need to make the ole data unrecoverable). About the mkfs, I guarantee that it will always work (with the -I option, of course). It'll neither wipe out anything nor create a partition table for normal use, but since the installa will re-partion the whole things, that doesn't matter (keep in mind that partman - the patitioning tool in Debian installa - won't wipe out anything either).

those commands took no time, thats why i think they dont do anything.
Mac OS X still finds a 3.6TB drive which it cant process, Lubuntu still crashes on initialization.

Re: No boot after installation - Macbook Pro 1.1 Intel Duo Core 2006

Hey there,
did this now:
sudo shred -n 3 -v /dev/sda

it did shred for a day the whole drive.

But still, installation CDs of Linux Crash and MacOSX sees a 3.6 tb drive.

Re: No boot after installation - Macbook Pro 1.1 Intel Duo Core 2006

i re-read the whole thread, but i'm still not 100% sure what your problem is.

1) you want to install linux, and linux only on your macbook
2) something (?) went wrong with the hard drive (?), and nothing installs

now, before we proceed with the installing bit, can you boot any linux live medium?

- if yes, please open a terminal and enter the command

sudo fdisk -l

, and copy-paste the complete terminal output here.

- if no, it must be bios related, so go into your bios and allow it to boot from usb (legacy?)

- if your machine uses EFI, i can't help with that bit but i hear one has to switch secure boot off.

Re: No boot after installation - Macbook Pro 1.1 Intel Duo Core 2006

See,
Linux Mint KDE on this Laptop was too heavy.
Ubuntu was fine.
Lubuntu has those videocard (most probably) issues and shuts down too frequently.
Crunchbang didnt boot after installation.

Since then i tweaked the disk.
As far as i understood GRUB loader installed in macbook is not good~

Boot from USB is not possible with macbook unless there is `refine`... if i had cared about installing refine to this machine via MacOsX, i would have installed CB through refine + save grub loader on usb instead of disk.

So maybe its the bios, or whatever a macbook is dealing with.... since Lubuntu once said something like Kernel Panic (after CBinstall) and MacOsX sees no disk after disk dd 0, shred and multiple testdisk/fdisk /dev/sda/mkfat ...

CB live medium works. Knoppix shuts down after i make any move and elementary os once reached desktop but mostly shuts down on the boot cd.

Re: No boot after installation - Macbook Pro 1.1 Intel Duo Core 2006

Your old Mac is 64 bit. The mac here is 32bit and i think its i486. Thought the systems are downgradeable anyway.

You mean debian jessie 32bit won`t crash cause its bootloader is familiar with the previous #! installation?

Thanks for the respond, links and oppinion. How does a net install work?

Re: No boot after installation - Macbook Pro 1.1 Intel Duo Core 2006

the jessie net install cd gets stuck when asking for boot option 1. or 2. ....
The boot options dont have any descriptions and the cursor blinks like the speed is a multiple. The keyboard didnt respond.

Tried pressing ALT which lead to me picking the cd as boot option, that way i could hammer number 1 before the keyboard stoped responding, but not ENTER.


Tried putting in the Knoppix DVD. Then i went to  install it in flash but picked my disk.
But it gives "error no configuration file or config setting, no default or U configuration setting...
