From RK

I have successfully installed Ubuntu Mate 16.04 LTS on my Mac Mini as a dual boot system. I also got rEfind installed manually on my Mac. The thing is that rEfind can’t seam to boot Ubuntu. I did figure out how to boot into it from a recovery boot in Advanced Systems. I have it all setup, and it is working well, except for that. Do you have any sage advice that could help me solve that boot up problem?

Thank you to all who listen and watch the show.

Rob and I would like to wish you all a Happy and Safe New Year to you and your families
