I installed Ubuntu Server 14 on my Mac Pro and now after a successful installation, when I tried to reboot it, the computer chimes like a Mac always does, but does not load any further. Normally I would see a grey screen then code as ubuntu loads and finally I would be prompted with a password.

It does non of that, any idea why this would be, I had Ubuntu 12 running great however quite a few corrupt files caused the upgrade to 14 to fail, and I erased the harddrive back to empty, and did a fresh install of 14. Everything seemed to go just fine until now.

What can or should I do to try and fix this.

EDIT: I now see the grey screen but then nothing happens after that

  • Hold down cmd + v when starting (verbose mode) where does it get hung up?

I have problem, that loading stop. But I could load ubuntu in safe mode.

I solve issue by edit Grub config, as suggested here - https://help.ubuntu.com/community/MacPro#Fixing_Grub. Actually I did only #3,4,5,6.

  # load ubuntu in safe mode or root console
  vim /etc/default/grub
  # change line in file to -> GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="nomodeset"
  update-grub
  shutdown -r now
