Recent MacBook does not start: no boot menu, black screen
This was reported on tails-testers@ on a Macbook Pro 13-inch 2017 (“Tails 4.0 beta 2” thread, starting on 2019-09-11). At my request, the reporter there nicely tested other Linux images:
- https://cdimage.debian.org/images/release/current/amd64/iso-cd/debian-mac-10.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso fails
- https://cdimage.debian.org/images/release/current/amd64/iso-cd/debian-10.1.0-amd64-netinst.iso works
- https://get.debian.org/cdimage/unofficial/non-free/cd-including-firmware/weekly-live-builds/amd64/iso-hybrid/debian-live-testing-amd64-gnome+nonfree.iso works
The reporter (Clem Hewison <email@example.com>) is happy to do more tests.
geb tells me this is a common problem on many recent MacBooks.
