Re: 64-bit MXLinux 17.1 does not boot after installation on iMac 6,1

from the inxi data, it looks like you have booted the 32 bit version in legacy-bios mode, but the 64 bit version in UEFI mode. So I'm not sure UEFI is the issue here.

64-bit MXLinux 17.1 does not boot after installation on iMac 6,1

Hi everyone, I am new here but pretty experienced Linux user. I have an old iMac (6,1) (Intel Core 2 Duo) which became useless because the OS is no longer updated. So I decided to revive it using MX-Linux. Note: I removed completely the Mac OS. The 64-bit MX-Linux (version 17.1) live usb worked fine...
