Is that an original MacBook Air? According to this page it does not boot EFI in 64 bits: Bert:
List of Macs that boot in EFI: http://www.everymac.com/mac-answers/snow-leopard-mac-os-x-faq/mac-os-x-snow-leopard-64-bit-macs-64-bit-efi-boot-in-64-bit-mode.html

Boot Flag: http://blog.christophersmart.com/2009/12/02/fedora-mac-and-efi/ older info to look at
Possible Fix: tested with grub2-efi, and then I can boot Air with xdriver=vesa nomodeset
Kernel upgrade to fix this: http://kojipkgs.fedoraproject.org/packages/kernel/3.1.0/7.fc16/x86_64/kernel-3.1.0-7.fc16.x86_64.rpm is in RC4

EFI Boot.JPG <===click on image to enlarge
To Boot Hold "Option" Key when starting Mac. Hold key until EFI USB Icon Appears then select it right arrow ===> (EFI)
KEY: (x)= device name
Use the sudo blkid command in a terminal to see the USB and other device names for discs attached to the system.
ie: /dev/sdb; /dev/sdc; /dev/sdd.... IMPORTANT very dangerous if you use the wrong one

Boot tests of dd img USB's in a MacBook i7

READ THIS FIRST^
Synopsis: Only EFI .img Boots Mac.


How to Write your own .img file

Run "yum install livecd-tools" so it installs all the required
dependencies and  then use livecd-iso-to-disk
  • use Disk Utility in f16 to format the USB as Master boot Record and /dev/sd(x)1 as FAT first.
  • Command Line to use in root terminal:
sudo livecd-iso-to-disk --reset-mbr --format --overlay-size-mb 300 --home-size-mb 175 --delete-home --unencrypted-home Fedora-16-release-i686-Live-SoaS.iso /dev/sd(x)

make .img file from inserted USB

Do this before you boot the USB.
( This will avoid network collisions when running multiple copies on the network.)
the unique ssh keys are generated on first boot of a SoaS USB
