MacBook Aluminum Install: Anaconda does not grub-install?
Last modified: 2009-09-09 10:49:07 EDT
Description of problem:
I just installed Fedora 11 on a Apple MacBook Aluminum. After installing, the system would not boot.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 11 Network Install Disk
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install Fedora 11 on a MacBook Aluminum
The laptop does not boot off its hard disk
The laptop should boot off its hard disk when restarted
I had to boot the network install disc and choose the local disk boot option. After booting from the disk using this method, I executed "grub-install /dev/sda." I am now able to boot from the laptop's hard disk.
Can you attach /var/log/program.log to this bug report? Does this machine use EFI?

I installed Fedora 11 on the MacBook after choosing Anaconda's "use entire hard drive" option. That is, I completely wiped the hard drive, created an MS-DOS-style partition table and installed Fedora using the default partition layout.
