fedora 12, attempt to install dual boot with OS X 10.4 (Tiger) on MacBook Pro

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


I was running Fedora 10 under bootcamp, dual booting with OS X 10.4.11 (Tiger) on a MacBook Pro.

I began (using the live boot CD) an install of Fedora 12. When I got to the point where you reboot to continue, the Fedora partition (an LVM, I just let the installer do what it wanted) was not a bootable drive. That is, bootcamp didn't see it anymore.

I booted up into OS X and tried the bootcamp assistant, which no longer runs. Apparently there is no version of bootcamp that still runs on the version of OS X that I have.

So I have a few questions:

1) Has anyone solved this?
2) If not, if I ditch OS X for good (I'm not going to pay for a new OS on this 4 yr old computer), should I expect any particular problems with Fedora 12 on this older MacBook Pro? It's an Intel Core Duo (not core 2 duo) model with ATI Radeon X1600.

The only reasons I keep OS X now are 1) can't get bluetooth to work under Fedora 10; 2) Can't get my java-based VPN portal to load up under Fedora 10 on this computer. The ATI doesn't do everything it should, but that doesn't bother me (I've never tried to fix it).
