You may find other tips on the net (see tuxmobil ?)

I experienced the same behavior, but I managed to get a newline through

Is it possible to single boot debian on a mactel?

My current understanding is that you need bootcamp to get

If I remember well you can get information about on the refit page,

at least to test your hardware in case.
Note that you need the firmware provided in OSX to runs the ISight camera.
