View Full Version : Strange booting error on MacMini

07-10-2014, 03:26 PM
I have a perfectly OK running installation of Knoppix 7.2 in a USB 3.0 External Hard drive. When I use that drive in a PC it boots OK, but when I try to boot in in the mac mini, a black screen appears saying "boot error".My mac mini does not have OS X installed but Linux Mint.How can I solve this, so I can use my Knoppix in both machines?Thanks in advanceNacho

The same USD external drive, when connected to a PC boots perfectly. Also a simple ISO image boots normally on the mac, but once installed using the flash installer no longer boots. Black screen with the "Boot error" message.
Very weird.
Any clues?

Your problem doesn't seems so be a Knoppix problem.
Perhaps Mac computers FAQ (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5172) will help you.
