I wasted a couple of hours trying to install Ubuntu 11.04 (natty) on my new Macbook Air mid 2011. Eventually got it to work:

  • In OSX, avoid turning on File Vault, shrink OSX partition and prepare a new partition for Ubuntu using the disk tool.
  • Install rEFIt (http://refit.sourceforge.net/)
  • dd this file to a usb stick, it is a version of the standard Ubuntu Desktop ISO modified using mkisohybrid.
  • Reboot with the USB stick plugged in and choose it in the rEFIt boot menu.
  • At the first Ubuntu boot screen press F6 (or any key?) to see boot options, tick nomodeset.
  • Go through the installation process
  • Reboot and in grub, edit kernel command line to contain nomodeset. (Can be done permanently by editing /etc/default/grub and then running update-grub).
  • apt-get install grub-efi (I have this, maybe grub-pc is fine too?)

Enjoy your new toy!
