Hi everyone! i have some major problems with my late 2006 iMac. I was gifted that imac and i thought i could try and install linux mint on it. but i screwed up big time. as i never used os x before i read a couple of tutorials and it sounded pretty easy. sadly i accidantly re partitioned the main drive so it shows as a 1 gb exFat partition. i cant repartion, i cant delete (both ends in a message telling me it was unable to unactivate the drive). i made several linux mint boot flash drives but non gets recognized when hold alt after boot. that iMac is the only mac i have, meaning i only can create usb flashs using windows. i tried to get trough this myself by reading and trying different things. i read that my iMac has a 32bit EFI version so i found a tutorial on making an bootable flash drive for those cases but it also doesnt get recognized. i made an rEFInd bootable flash drive, that works but my varios mint flash drives (including the 32bit EFI version) and my mint live cd won't get recognized by rEFInd. i tried diskutil list in terminal while in recovery mode but i get a message telling me no corestorage logical volume groups found. i cant reinstall OS X lion by internet recovery cause i cant format/partiton my hdd to the propper size/file system. and, of course, i dont have a OS X cd. does anyone have an idea on how i could either OS X back on running or a clean install of linux mint? thanks in advance!
