Hi there, that is not likely the actual cause of your problem. Does the boot process actually begin?

No. Just sits there. Same USB drive worked fine in a 2015 MacBook Pro.

Same Problem here on a 2016 MacBook Pro with touchbar.

Boot process begins as far as selecting the USB drive and the messages above appear. I tried with Ubuntu 16.10 too.

Okay, no Linux distribution seems to be working with new macbook pros at the moment. Booting the USB stick with my macbook pro retina was no problem. don't know about the macbook, but AFAIK problems with macbook pro 2016 are related to new keyboard and touchpad and the macbook is pretty similiar here @decoy

Hi guys, unfortunately support depends on the Linux distribution vendors. There may not be driver support for the new MacBook yet.

You really need to post these details before selling something in exchange for money. Your site says "A Mac or PC with 64-bit UEFI firmware (any Mac made since 2007 should work)" and just about any Ubuntu distribution. Come on.

Hi decoy, this is very clearly stated on the [system requirements](https://www.sevenbits.io/mlul/sys-requir.html) page, and I am working closely with distribution vendors to come up with a solution. I hate this situation as much as you do.

A Mac or PC with 64-bit UEFI firmware (any Mac made since 2007 should work) Clear as mud.

It is mentioned right there on the last line item. I am open to any suggestions to improve the documentation.

I have same problem with a MacBookPro5,3 (mid 2009). Boot ROM version is MBP53.00AC.B03. Tried with debian-8.7.1-amd64-DVD-1. Please provide instructions on how to fix that...
