I'm trying to load elementary Freya to run alongside my Mac OS on two of my laptop Mac computers.
My two computers are :
MacBook (13-inch Late 2007) - Intel Core 2 Duo
MacBook Pro (15-inch Mid 2009) - Intel Core 2 Duo
I'm using your installation page - https://elementary.io/docs/installation#download-elementary-os
and following the instruction for Mac OS.
Both my computers are Intel Core 2 Duo and therefore I understand that a bootable USB stick for Freya will not work. So, I have followed the route of downloading your iso for Freya and burning it to DVD.
I am successful in loading Freya to my older MacBook running Freya alongside the Mac OS section of the HD.
However, I am not able to load Freya to my younger MacBook Pro. In booting from the DVD, as mentioned above, I get the following message showing up against a black screen :
controller found [ 2.028751 ] ACPI PCC probe failed [ 2.247927 ] nouveau E[ PDISP ] [ 0000:02:00.0 ] 01:0006:0242: no bios dp data
and I'm left with a blinking hyphen and there seems no way forward. I have to force shutdown on the computer to come out of this position.
Can anyone help me please ?
