Dear 李白|字一日,

This story seems to give some good pointers:
https://regebro.wordpress.com/2008/11/16/installing-linux-on-a-macbook-without-os-x/

For my curiosity: Why buy a mac if you intend to only use Linux on it? 
You could buy some other brand for half the price and not have to deal 
with these problems...

Best regards,
Patrick
