Some notes on installation and quirks of arch on the mid-2012 Retina MacBook Pro.

This pages completes the MacBook page, in aspects that are particular to the retina model. Refer to the MacBook page whenever convenient or needed.

Note: being edited. I didn't link this page from anywhere until it's got some useful content. If you stumble on it, please contribute.

Basic kernel installation


Follow the recommendations/instructions in the MacBook archwiki page.


From the few EFI boot managers around, Refind seems to be the most stable and feature complete (see UEFI_Bootloaders)

Installation media

This laptop has no cd/dvd reader. The easiest solution is to use a USB key to install arch.
