sooo @Adubs @AnotherDev @redgek… anyone

if say I am getting an error on my macbook air of “failed to start loader.efi : (14) not found” does this mean I need to load rEFIt? From what I read online its not really clear

Backstory is this Macbook Air had no hard drive, I got one online but it has been wiped so no OS on it. when trying to start antergros everything works on preboot menu (which is weird cuz I think its a 32 bit but w/e) however it goes to that fail message when trying to boot one of those options

probably. Idk anything about linux on macs

i have tried about 3 distros now… all are having issues getting into the usb installer. I am thinking there must be something stopping it from what I read on the screen, maybe a hardware issue?

macs will only boot efi

how are you making the USB?

ugh, do I have to grow up and be an adult? I want to be a script kiddie forever

prob, I cant find a single guide that is doing what I am doing. Everyone is duel booting or starting with OSX then overwriting to Linux. One guide said if I didn’t have OSX, you would need to reinstall… but idk sounds dumb if so
