well, I installed BootCamp on my new macbook black core 2 duo, I partitioned the hd, I installed rEFIt as I read in many wikis.
when I try to boot the latest arch 0.8 alpha iso it hangs after printing "Loading stage2 .... "
It seems to be a grub problem, maybe can be solved patching grub with this patchset:
(there is a patch named "intelmac.diff")
If I'll find free time, I'll try patching it by myself and test the iso.
(I bought this notebook for running Arch, not macox)
This task depends upon
