I have a macbook. I installed 64-Studio 2.1 i386 on a separate partition on my hard drive. I use rEFIt as my boot manager. When I boot into rEFIt, it doesn't show my 64-Studio.

And Disk Utility shows that there is a Linux Swap partition and an MS-DOS partition that is the same size as my 64-Studio partition. How do I get into 64-Studio??

Thank you, I will give it a

I don't know if there are 64studio users running a Macbook. If so, please give your input. Meanwhile, we as not Macbook owners, only can make guesses. I suggest you follow the wiki (doubleboot Mac OSX and Debian)and install Debian etch. Then you'll have a dual boot system through GRUB rather than rEFIT From users' FAQ: Is it possible to upgrade from a plain Debian Etch install to 64 Studio? Yes, by ... Good luck Pablo

If I do that, will I see it

Search the forums - there are quite a few people that had to install Debian and "upgrade" to 64 Studio because of hardware issues with the aging 64studio installer kernel. Cheers,

Well how would I get the full feature of 64-Studio through a Debian Distro?

I suggest you should take a look at Macbook Debian wiki. To clarify, 64studio 2.1 is currently a branch of Debian etch, which is Debian stable at the moment. Is there someone who has tried 64studio in a macbook, by the way? Cheers Pablo
