I've been able to run uBuntu 14 and uBuntu Mate on an 06 MacBook Pro A1150. Are you trying to do a dual system boot or just install Linux? Haven't tried the other versions you spoke of. With uBuntu, I used the alternate install disk and it worked just fine.

i did install linux lubuntu (missing video driver), ubuntu (fine but sometimes slow) and crunchbang.

But the crunchbang install made it impossible to boot. Only a Live Cd of Crunchbang works now.

The MacOS X Cd shows a 3.6TB drive where a 500GB is supposed to be.

Is there maybe a different way to reset the macbook other then p+r+alt+apple?

I cant enter a bios with this macbook. Some boot parameter must have been changed, so othere live Cds of linux also dont work anymore...

If all else fails, I was able to install linux by booting the live cd in another computer, removing the harddrive from the MacBook Pro, plugging it into the first computer via a usb cable, and installing that way.
