Dun goof'd - macbook won't boot to anything

Hi guys,

I ***** it. Tried to install debian using rEFInd. Everything was going fine until the last step of the installer, my screen went black and it just sat for ages. I wasn't sure what happened, left it for a bit, still black screen. *****.

Boot it up, get back into Mac OS, try to get back into the debian install but I just get a black screen every time. Tried to just delete everything and try again. Tried to delete the linux partition on my drive. Then everything went wrong.

I have a 500gb ssd. My linux partition was 64gb, so I had 436gb left for Mac OS. I somehow removed the linux partition, but the tool crashed and gave some error, so I was left with a 436gb drive and the other space was just gone. I thought, huh, maybe a restart will fix it.

Do not use abusive or obscene language.

^ Were you installing Bunsenlabs, or some flavour of Debian?

I cant find any question. Do you want advice how to install debian or bunsenlab on an Mac?

You leave very little specific information.

I do not understand why you aresurprised that your attemt to delete debian partition succeded...

Remember, that if you want to investigate a linux partition, you can boot a live dist. Either Bunsenlabs or other.
