I'm having an issue trying to install Mint 14 on my late 2009 iMac. I followed the steps outlined here.
Just a quick recap of the above link. I have rEFIt installed on the computer, I downloaded the Mint 14 64-bit .iso and the bootx64.efi file mentioned in the post. I put them on a boot-able USB with both files in /efi/boot/ (with the .iso renamed 'boot.iso') I then partitioned 90GB Free Space using Disk Utility, but when I boot from the USB to Mint, this is what I see:
and a closer look:
Sorry for the quality, had no way to take a screenshot, in the second picture you can see what looks like some sort of error message (presumably). It does have the option to select something, although I cannot read it, but because Mint never boots up completely my BT keyboard doesn't connect. I will have a USB keyboard this evening if it will make a difference. I have searched here and other places but haven't seen this particular issue. Anyone have any ideas? I do have some limited experience with Linux but basically am a novice. Would a different version work better? 32-bit maybe? I tried removing and manually installing rEFIt, but got the same result. I checked the MD5 on the Mint image, it checked out. I'm at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated. If I left out any pertinent information (and I'm sure I did), please ask and I will try to provide it ASAP, but I will have to wait until this evening to make any physical changes to the computer. Also, the graphics card in my mac is the Radeon HD 4670.
