I have a old Mac Mini. (1.66 GHz Intel Core Duo) Running Mac OS 10.6.7 That is not able to upgrade to “Lion”. Also several large external “Firewire” hard drives.
What I would like to do is install and run Ubuntu on the internal Mac Mini drive, and then boot into a clone of my current Mac OS from the external drive, once in a great while. Is this doable?
I now run rEFit on the internal system so that I can boot into the Ubuntu system on my external drive. I would like to reverse this.
I can not afford to buy a new mac at this time.
Boot loaders are a mystery to me. Do I need to install rEFit on the Ubuntu system?
Thank you in advance
