I recently started getting into Linux because for I need it for work. I started off with using it in a VMware virtual machine in OS X and tried all sorts of different distros, Ubuntu, Debian and Fedora, trying 32 bit and 64 bit versions. Fedora seemed the nicest and did everything I wanted it to so I settled on that. I decided I wanted something native too so did a bit of shuffling around of my hard drives and freed up 64gb of unpartitioned space on the tertiary hard drive of my system. I installed Refit to allow easy booting and proceeded to install Fedora. Now no matter which version I choose, 32 bit or 64 bit, it all installs fine but when it comes to booting, I select the installation of Fedora in Refit and push enter and then all I get is a flashing cursor in the top left of the screen. It did the same when I was using Boot Camp rather than Refit too.
Does anyone have any ideas on how to get Fedora 7 to work on a Mac Pro?
My system is as follows:
2.66GHz Quad Mac Pro
2x7300GT Graphics Cards
Airport Extreme (802.11g+'n')
250GB Primary HD - 160GB OS X + 90GB Windows XP SP2
300GB Secondary HD - 300GB Data
300GB Tertiary HD - 100GB Data + 64GB Unused (for Fedora) + 136GB Unused (for Data)
500GB Quaternary HD - 500GB Data
300GB Quinary HD - 300GB Data
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!
