[Grml] grml and mactel

I booted grml from the live cd on macmini.  I plugged an 8GB usb flash drive into the macmini.  I used grml2hd to install onto my flash drive.

I then rebooted macmini while the flash was plugged.  Refit saw my flash drive with a linux icon.  I chose to boot from that.  I failed.  The error message was something like cannot find OS to be loaded.

On which computer have you booted into grml? I assume you are trying to
install grml from a running grml?

Yeah, very nice.

Why? How do you come to this conclusion? What is not running?

Can you boot anything else than Mac OSX from refit? Have you tried a
GRML live cd?

I thought your USB device was shown in rEFIt?
