I doubt very, very much that Ubuntu has anything to do with this. Start
by checking that EFI, the Mac equivalent of BIOS, has a setting to
"ignore boot errors", or "headless boot", or something like that.

Disclaimer: I'm very familiar with the boot process on PC hardware, but
have never done anything with EFI.
