Hey Guys,

I'm having an issue installing ubuntu on my 2007 MacBook Pro 3, 1(10.8.4). I've tried to install it from USB since my optical drive is broken. I've followed the instruction on how to setup a bootable usb on mac osx.

in MBP I get no errors.

Once I boot into the USB I get a "secure boot not enabled". I get a black screen, then a screen with the try ubuntu or Install Ubuntu options.

No matter which i select it goes to a black screen and nothing else happens....

any idea what I can do?

is there any other distro that might work better?
