I've been trying to install different flavours of Ubuntu on my MacBookPro11,3 (15-inch) and nothing seems to work. Once I pass the Grub bootloader stage, all I'm getting is a blank screen.

I've seen some issues with installing Ubuntu on Apple's new Haswell-based hardware, so I assume that's the cause. I've installed Ubuntu just fine on previous Apple hardware.

If it helps, I've booted into recovery mode and this is the state I get stuck at: Recovery Mode Boot Screen

Has anyone else had this problem when installing Ubuntu onto the recent Macbook Pros?

Figured out the problem. Stay away from the i386 image. The amd64 image, like from this page, actually works.
