My understanding is that F17 can be booted and installed on compatible MBPs via EFI.
I just purchased one of the recently released Ivy Bridge MBPs and can't seem to get this to work.
I tried with both the Live CD and the full DVD.
- Insert disc.
- Restart computer.
- Hold Alt/Option button.
- Select Fedora installation.
- At Fedora boot screen, I select any option and hit enter but then nothing happens. I see the blue boot screen background image and the cursor in the top left corner.
Eventually the disc stops spinning and at this point, I have to hard reset the machine to get it to boot back up.
Has anybody else been able to install F17 on one of these new MBPs or seen the same symptoms I'm seeing? I'm curious if the issue is related to the new CPU/GPU.

Looks like somebody else has tried and is getting the same results on one of the new MacBook Air devices: http://forums.fedoraforum.org/showthread.php?t=281038
