    Hi,

    I'm trying ton install a debian on an external usb disk. I have a macbook pro. I follow this tips (http://wiki.debian.org/MacMiniIntel?highlight=%28mini%29%7C%28mac%29) but that doesn't work.

    Elilo load the initrd.img, but after it hang and nothing append... I can't show any error message. I don't know what can I do?

    My elilo.conf is :

    ## elilo configuration file generated by elilo 3.6-2

    # install=/usr/lib/elilo/elilo.efi
    # boot=/dev/sdb1
    delay=20
    default=Linux

    image=/EFI/debian/vmlinuz
    label=Linux
    root=/dev/sdb6
    read-only
    initrd=/EFI/debian/initrd.img
    append="pcboot=pendrive video=vesafb:1440x900-32@70 acpi=force"

    image=/EFI/debian/vmlinuz.old
    label=LinuxOLD
    root=/dev/sdb6
    read-only
    initrd=/EFI/debian/initrd.img.old

    Some commands :

    ubuntu@ubuntu:/media/usbdisk/EFI/debian$ ls

    elilo.conf  elilo.efi  initrd.img  README.TXT  vmlinuz
