I recently got the new macbook because of its supreme mobility. I never used a mac before, and have decided to put ubuntu on it before I even purchased it. However the process is way too painful, and I am cornered here... I followed instructions online, and here is what I did: I installed rEFInd 0.8.7 on mac to have boot options. I make a live CD (ubuntu 14.04) to boot from. Once it boots up, according to some tutorials, I should boot into the legacy loader, but that gave me error, the one I could boot into is called grub64xxx. From that I can get into the options to install ubuntu, once I get into the purple screen, the keyboard is not working, mouse is not working... The keyboard is not even lit up. So to deal with that, I bought a usb hub and attach mouse and keyboard to it. The external keyboard and mouse do work, and I can click the button to go the next step, however, now ubuntu live CD told me I don't have enough space to install, even though I do have enough space to install 10 ubuntus. I can see that ubuntu doesn't recognize my hard drive. If I attach a usb stick to it, it will recognize that however and let me install on the usb stick... I think the problem is, once I boot from anything other than Mac system, all the hardwares are not working at all! Is there anyway I can work around this? This model is fairly new, hence not many helpful information online yet. I am really struggling since this is a big purchase and I can't return it any more. Or I have to learn the Mac system, which might actually take me a while... And I use ubuntu on all my other PCs, this would be kinda painful.
