How can I install Fedora onto macbook pro(early 2011)?
I would like for WIFI to work on Fedora after the install.
This will need to be a completely offline install.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Offline install of Fedora 28 onto Macbook 2011:
Important: download the firmware/driver to a usb/zip drive or burn it to dvd. It is the firmware/driver you will need to install for Linux to run the broadcom wifi card inside the macbook: http://www.lwfinger.com/b43-firmware/broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz2. Also, create a bootable image of High Sierra on a usb drive so you can go back to macos if you would like to. Download the High Sierra installer app from the apple store and create a bootable usb drive from it: https://www.techrepublic.com/article/how-to-create-a-usb-installer-for-macos-high-sierra/
Download Fedora 28 Live iso.
Use Etcher.io to create a Fedora bootable USB drive that a Macbook can boot Fedora from.
Insert the Fedora bootable USB drive and start Macbook while pressing the option key until you see the apple logo appear.
When the boot options appear select EFI boot and then "start Fedora".
Follow the options to install Fedora to hard disk.
Insert the media where you stored the broadcom firmware/driver.
tar xjf /path-to-broadcom-driver/broadcom-wl-5.100.138.tar.bz
Extract and install the broadcom firmware/driver:
sudo b43-fwcutter -w /lib/firmware broadcom-wl-5.100.138/linux/wl_apsta.o
Load the firmware with the following command:
