  • Latest F16-RC4 and RC5 have the updated kernel and boot an EFI USB device directly on a MacBookPro i7 (11/03/2011)
I just successfully made a f16 RC4 EFI Boot USB in VirtualBox on My Macbook Pro i7......nice ; used x86-64 live Desktop and liveinst then installed additions (for USB Access)

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

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

  • How to use the VM to create an EFI boot USB
Start Virtual Appliance
start Terminal (Applications/system tools/terminal)
In terminal: cd Downloads
Insert a 2 GB or larger USB
type "mount" to get USB device name ie: /dev/sdb; /dev/sdc/; etc Be certain of this to get this wrong is dangerous.  
minimize
start Applications/Accessories/gedit
In Gedit Open /Desktop/livecd-iso-to-disk.txt
edit command line to show correct USB device name.

Anaconda FAILS

Fix for USER Login

I just installed from the Live CD [1] to a 16 GB USB stick and got it to boot and login.

  • Problem;
firstboot is not writing the passwords for the user that is entered in it. This causes the install to be useless as it cannot be logged in to.
  • Fix:
I added selinux=0 s (run level 1) to the boot line of the USB
It booted to console prompt
  root
(no password)  #
Entered commands:
selinux=0
useradd xxxxx
passwd  xxxxxxx
login
  • logged in to gdm sucessfully.
GNOME 3.3.5 came up
the useradd user is admin.
  • This seems to bypass the firstboot errors.
