I have a Mac Mini (6,1) and I want to dual boot OSX with crunchbang (chose this distro because Wi-fi works out of the box).
First, I installed rEFIt and put crunchbang on a flashdrive.
Next, I partitioned my hard drive with OSX disk utility and created 250gb of free space
Then I rebooted, and started the crunchbang live disk and during the installation chose "Largest amount of continuous free space", which created a "space for BIOS" and ext4 partition (mounted at /)
After installing the system, I was asked where to put grub (do I put it on the space reserved for BIOS or do I put it on the ext4 partition??), and it gave me a weird list of disks/partitions, so I wasn't sure which one to put grub onto.
The options went (as best I can remember):
The first partition of the first disk. The second partition of the first disk. The first partition of the second disk. and the first partition of the third disk.
Out of fear I aborted the installation, as I've already had to replace my computer because of partitioning issues
If anyone has experience with this it would be greatly appreciated.
