MacBook Pro 2019

I have a MacBook Pro 2019 (with touchbar)and I want to run linux on it (not in a virtual machine)
I just tried to boot it from the iso and i just got the mouse showing and a white backround.
I am wondering if anyone knows how to duel boot linux.

typically, starting the Mac while holding the OPTION key will bring up a choice of available boot options

It has been said that no Linux can be installed on this current MBPs. If this is still true, I can’t say.

Hello @yadco
Here is some info on 2018 Macbook Pro installation. Maybe some of it will be of value?

I would advice to create your partitions directly from terminal OSX not disk utility . I know by experience when I plugged a sdd partitionned by Gparted on the mac I got problems… And you need to plug a keyboard and mouse until you install the drivers on your linux distro.

I come back in few minutes to give you the commands.

I have a windows 10 bootcamp partition already which I don’t need

It gets pass grub and something tries to boot

Could you give first the result from below that I understand your partition scheme ?

sudo diskutil list

You could start in Recovery mode and use the Terminal.

/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk0
1: EFI EFI 314.6 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_APFS Container disk1 776.0 GB disk0s2
3: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 224.2 GB disk0s3

/dev/disk1 (synthesized):
0: APFS Container Scheme - +776.0 GB disk1
Physical Store disk0s2
1: APFS Volume Macintosh HD - Data 438.7 GB disk1s1
2: APFS Volume Preboot 82.0 MB disk1s2
3: APFS Volume Recovery 528.5 MB disk1s3
4: APFS Volume VM 1.1 GB disk1s4
5: APFS Volume Macintosh HD 10.9 GB disk1s5

I used the normal terminel. Is that ok or do i need to boot to recovery

It’s ok but I think would be better to go in recovery if we need to clean and prepare the disk. Tell me exactly what you want to keep and what you want to obtain with your disk ?

I don’t mind deleting all of windows

Ok so, go in the recovery mode, and open the terminal, it will be more safe to clean the windows stuff.

shuting down and switching to my phone now

We agree, that after it you will loose all data on the partition we will delete.
You do simply this to delete the partition you want for exemple your disk0s3, it corresponds to the bootcamp for windows :

sudo diskutil eraseVolume free NULL /dev/disk0s3

After that, it’s necessary to recover the space we delete to resize volume

Just deleted windows

Resize volume to recover the space deleted with :

sudo diskutil resizeVolume disk0s2 0b

If I understood you want take the space we delete disk0s3 224.2 GB to install EnOS on it ?

Yes this space will be used for Linux

So don’t do the resize volume. If you want to keep this disk0s3 to install Linux EnOS on it you have to partionne it like this :

disk0s3 = 224.2 GB TOTAL needs to be transformed like this :

disk0s3 = EFI 550MB FAT32
disk0s4 = SYSTEM 30GB EXT4
disk0s5 = HOME 200GB EXT4 (size meaning the rest of the disk)
