I am trying to get Loki to dual boot on the same HD as my OSX 10.10.
I have tried starting the install as per the instructions by booting from the iso on a thumb drive. This loads the installer, but I'm only given the option to blow my OSX installation away.
I have also tried installing refind 10.4 (I was following this guide http://forlearning.com/dual-booting-elementary-os-and-osx/).
Question 1: Without using refind, is there a method in the installation wizard to install elementary on the same boot HD as OSX? There appears to be nothing in the wizard to allow me to do so. I only get the ‘erase’ option.
Question 2: If it is not possible to do this, if I use a boot manager such as refind is it possible to do so? I have tried following the instructions here (http://forlearning.com/dual-booting-elementary-os-and-osx/ and I expect to see an option for ‘install alongside osx’) but when I a) choose the ‘legacy’ option in refind (furthest right) it cannot find the bootable volume b) choose the ‘linux’ option, the elementary install wizard loads but again it does not detect the presence of OSX on the drive and I still don’t get the ‘install alongside OS X’ option and only see the erase option.
A few years back I installed Luna on a Macbook using refit and saw the ‘install alongside OSX’ option. I was able to successfully install.
