    Hi!

    Can someone verify if xiopan (and reaver of course) is gonna work running on a macbook pro 8,2?
    To be exact I want to create a bootable usb drive. Instructions for this also apreciated.

    Thx,
    krisgo

    Damn krisgo,

    Did you use http://refit.sourceforge.net/ ?

    I have not tested, but as far as Reaver Pro goes or other Ubuntu based systems on a Mac with persistence, you can do the following:

    1) Download PloP boot manager
    2) Open Disk Utility on your Mac
    3) Format the USB to (i can't remember, FAT32?)
    4) Move the plpbt.iso to where your drivers are listed
    5) Burn the ISO to USB and make sure you have checked advanced > verify disk
    6) Plug your USB device in
    7) Reboot with the ISO in your drive
    8) hold the option / alt key at the same time it chimes
    9) Choose the correct one and boot from USB

    Many thanks trying to help me!

    The above seems a liitle bet confusing to me...

    I better summarize what I have done so far and why I have to do it so.

    I have a MacBook Pro early 2011. I could burn the Reaver Pro iso to DVD, but there is a DVD stuck in my drive, so I will have to bring my Mac to repair. Thats the reason I fight with the USB boot.

    I have formatted a 2GB USB drive with FAT32 and MBR and followed the following guide http://ubuntuforums.org/showpost.php?p=7926629&postcount=7 using their attached file.

    So I have my USB drive with the following structure:
    ./efi/boot/bootx64.efi
    ./efi/boot/bootx64.icns
    ./efi/boot/grub.cnf
    ./ReaverPro.iso

    I also have edited the frub.cfg and added the folloeing entry:

    menuentry "Reaver Pro" {
    fakebios
    search --set -f /ReaverPro.iso
    loopback loop /ReaverPro.iso
    linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ReaverPro.iso video=efifb noefi persistent
    initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.gz
    }

    alternate configs I also have tried:

    menuentry "Reaver Pro" {
    fakebios
    search --set -f /ReaverPro.iso
    loopback loop /ReaverPro.iso
    linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz file=/cdrom/preseed/custom.seed boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ReaverPro.iso video=efifb noefi persistent
    initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.gz
    }

    menuentry "Reaver Pro" {
    fakebios
    search --set -f /ReaverPro.iso
    loopback loop /ReaverPro.iso
    linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ReaverPro.iso video=efifb noefi persistent
    initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.gz
    }

    menuentry "Reaver Pro" {
    fakebios
    search --set -f /ReaverPro.iso
    loopback loop /ReaverPro.iso
    linux (loop)/casper/vmlinuz boot=casper iso-scan/filename=/ReaverPro.iso video=efifb noefi
    initrd (loop)/casper/initrd.gz
    }
    I think the problem relies in the fact that it does not load the live image but the one for regular install. I also do not see the menu of Reaver Pro where I can choose to run it live or to install.

    Basicly this should work because Reaver Pro is based on Ubuntu and uses syslinux and boots into casper.
    But...
