    Default Installation "backtrack 5" to "macbook 5.2" startup freezes loading the operating sys

    Hello everyone,

    After a couple of years with ubuntu, I decided to switch to blacktrack. I tried to install version 5 of the operating system on a MacBook Pro 5.2 - full HD (1920 x 1080).

    - I prepared the partitions: ext4 and snaps.
    - I installed on the macbook pro "rEFIt" to dual boot.
    - I installed via DVD blacktrack 5 R1 x64 Gnome (I also tried the 32-bit).
    - Reboot the macbook pro and use grub to choose the operating system.
    - The operating system just freezes when you are loading. I can not even get to the login.

    Normal "windows" based laptops are cheap on ebay.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69

    Had the same problem....

    Here is a way to solve it:

    In the grub moot menu just hit "e" and edit the booting modus:

    add "nomodeset" and start booting with ctrl + x

    That shall do!
