Recommended Posts

I am trying to launch Kali Linux on my Macbook Pro and when I launch it using refind I get this error: "No bootable device -- Insert boot disk and press any key."

My USB is working fine on other Macbooks, even older than mine.


 MPR Specifications:
Macbook Pro 13" Early 2011
i5, 4 RAM

Model Identifier: MacBookPro8,1

Hardware UUID: 1BC47169-1046-5052-B58F-F736330B7B6

Are you conforming with the below?

 

https://support.apple.com/en-gb/HT201663

"Intel-based Macs support starting from an external USB storage device's volume that:

  • Has been formatted with a GUID partition type.
  • Contains an installation of Mac OS X 10.4.5 or later, or Mac OS X 10.5 or later, which is compatible with (or shipped with) the Mac that the USB device is connected to. Note: You should not use a version of Mac OS X that is earlier ("older") than the version your Mac shipped with."

 

http://docs.kali.org/installation/kali-linux-dual-boot-on-mac-hardware

"Installation Prerequisites

  • Devices older than ‘late 2012‘, may require a blank DVD. USB booting may not work without rEFInd pre-installed."
  • OSX 10.7 or higher"
