Well, finally I come here. after a lot of problems, I installed elementary OS Freya with my live USB erasing ALL my macbook pro disk but it was not a solution. Now, I turn on my mac and nothing happens... still in white and after a question mark and thats all. I enter using the live USB with the Try elementary OS option and I see the partitions with Freya but I don't know why WHY! it doesn't start with elementary OS T_T.

Pd. I would answer all your question, send information and follow your indications because I thing that there is the best place so solve my problem. Thanks!

Update I've uploaded a video in order to illustrate the problem. Video

Freya has a known UEFI bug. You can find details here.

Here is a sister thread that walks through the fix.

Please let me know if you need anything explained and I will try my best to expound on their solution.

  • Hi, they say that "Install Elementary 0.3.1 as normal (no special partitioning). Follow: elementary.io - Installation Boot will end in grub shell. Enter:" But I don't get the grub shell. Just white. and when I try to select a partition to run with alt, nothing appears. Thank you very much Sep 29, 2015 at 22:30
  • I uploaded a video showing you how is the starting process. Sep 29, 2015 at 22:52
  • is your boot partition mounted as the EFI sys partition or /boot? Are you sure you have a GUID partition table (GPT) on your drive?
