this is a problem with the EFI usually.  I have had trouble booting
various Ubuntu distros with the AMD64 disk on my Macbook Pro (around the
same time as yours)  The Ubuntu (the Unity version) image for Mac Intel
works just fine.  Otherwise you will have to opt for the 32bit image. 
If you have more than 4 Gigs of RAM this is an issue, as your OS wont be
able to access all of it.  If you have 4 or less it wont make much of a
difference at all.  Do you use rEFInd <>
?  Also, you should check the MD5SUM
<> of the image you
downloaded to make sure it is correct.
Apple uses a Hybrid EFI so it is hard to work with.  You will also
probably need proprietary drivers for NVIDIA in order to suspend, though
the nouveau drivers work better for everything else.  In older versions
(like 12.04) suspend and resume work fine with the nouveau drivers.
There is a bug for this if you have similar hardware.
My model is 3,1 you can find this in Ubuntu by running

sudo dmidecode -s system-product-name

or in OSX by running
sysctl hw.model
has specific info on all the tested models
