I've installed ElementaryOS on OSX, at first a black scree was shown, I followed the #9 and #10 tutorials in the answer in: Black screen when installing OS ,in the final steps I was able to boot on OSX and install rEFInd again, after that I modified the following files /etc/default/grub and /etc/grub.d/10_linux,everything worked fine, rEFInd was showing and Elementary OS opened correctly, everything was fine except for the fact that when clickin on MacOS a white image was hanging and even after 20 mins. on waiting OSX didn't start, further more even when the #10 tutorial said there should appear an AMD allowing version on rEFInd it didn't enter image description here enter image description here
