Tag Archives: rEFIt



So, I finally had the time to make my 2007 MacBook (2.2) Pro useful again by installing Ubuntu 11.04 on to it.

My vision for the MBP is that it will become a development/coding machine…portable and geeky 🙂

How did I do it?  Well, I first killed off the OSX (10.4 I think it was) and repartition the whole disc.  I had a lot of junk on there so I thought of it as a clean sweep.  I re-installed OSX and then installed rEFIt that would help me dual-boot and install via the Ubuntu Live disc.

The process of install Ubuntu was quite straight forward and without issue.  Ubuntu appears to work straight outta the box.
