Package: cdimage.debian.org
Version: all

> No, this Debian ISO does not boot either.
> My Macbook 2,1 is from the "late 2006" series; http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1635
> From the comments on http://mjg59.dreamwidth.org/11285.html :
> "You're booting via the BIOS compatibility layer, which is broken on images with multiple
> El-Toritos on Macs. The problem is that the Macbook 2,1 has 32-bit firmware even though it
> has a 64-bit CPU, and right now we don't support that."

> The ISO that works is
> http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/daily-live/current/trusty-desktop-amd64+mac.iso
> which is fine; I just wanted to flag up that the normal ISO does not work
