I have a simple question, and i spend so much time in the internet to don't resolve the problem. I have a Macbook White 5.2 mid 2009 and i want to install CrunchBang on it, the problem is that the USB booter that i made using UNEBootin doesn't appears in the boot screen on rEFIt. This is so strange because if a made a bootable USB of a distro like Xubuntu it appears, just with CrunchBang it doesn't work (doesnt worker too with fedora and others that i dont remember).
Sorry about my english!
vrkalak, but there's no way to make a USB-drive in a OS X, our i follow the same instructions as linux?
I make the biggest stupid thing in my whole life. I think that confuse the sda (my whole HD) with sda1 (the USB HD) and now all my main HD are a boot for crunchbang. So, when i try to lunch my os (choosing the HD as primery booter on BIOS) they start a live for CrunchBang.
What can i do? I have things that i need to recovery from the HD and, in the live option, it says that my HD are unallocated.
Oh, i forgot to tell that i make the confusion trying to create a usb bootable driver on xubuntu, following the instructions given by vrkalak.
You will need a live distro to look at your hard drive.
Do you have one? (It can be xubuntu if necessary.)
Boot into a live system, in a terminal, as the root user, type fdisk -l /dev/sda (& press enter).
Post the output on here, (one of our mac users will then be able to guide you).
I was making the USB boot in a PC computer, so a screw up my girlfriend's computer. I will write what it says after type the code:
Disk /dev/sda: 320.1 GB, 320072933376 bytes
64 heads, 32 sectors/track, 305245 cylinders, total 625142448 sectors
Units = sectors of 1 * 512 = 512 bytes
Sector size (logical/physical): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
I/O size (minimum/optimal): 512 bytes / 512 bytes
Disk identifier: 0x6b8b4567
Device Boot Start End Blocks Id System
/dev/sda1 * 0 1538047 769024 17 Hidden HPFS/NTFS
Is there a way to view my old home (before it turned in to a boot disk, when it was installed a xubuntu)?
Thanks for helpin me & sorry my english.
According to that you have one partition on that disk, so it certainly looks like everything is gone for good, to me.
Okay. Thank you, fatmac.
I'm trying to recover my files from a external HD.
And about the bootable USB, later i will try to use a CD to make CrunchBang boot in my Macbook.
You have now officially upgraded from OS X to Crunchbang. Congratulations on moving up
Dozy Van, in reality i still can't boot CrunchBang on my Macbook. I made a Live CD but my efi boot doesnt recognize the system. I don't know what else i can do. I m thinking in format my macbook in the weekend to see if it ll work...
Deleted - I think you know all that, reading your first post.
