Re: Mint 17.1 (64-bit) Install on Macbook Pro 2015 (12,1)

Re: Full install onto SD card

Trying to do the same thing on my MBPro retina 2015 (12,2) I'm having issues where the screen isn't rendered properly when I boot the live USB.

Re: Graphical issues on 2015 Macbook pro 13"

I tried Ubuntu 15.04 but I'm having issues getting it to work properly with the Broadcom drivers. Is there a way to update Mint's Kernel without booting into Mint?
