I recently got a brand new MacBook Pro earlier this year as a gift, and I'm trying to understand how it boots because it does not have a BIOS like I'm used to. I used a Linux LiveCD to format the entire HDD because I was not aware of this, and so everything that was on it such as the EFI partition is now gone because I wanted to install Linux over the entire thing like I do with my other computers. But it's a hassle to install distros because even though the default install settings work fine with all of my other machines, but after I install on my MacBook Pro and try to boot it up, it rarely works. Is it just the way the boot partition is read in order by the motherboard or something? Or is it something else different entirely about MacBooks?
