Hello all,
I have an issue....so my iMac 2006 works fine with LinuxLiteOS. Problem is whenever I boot it up I need to press ALT to get to the EFI boot option. Is there an easier workaround this problem? I would like to just bootup the Imac and load LinuxLiteOS.

If you don't press it, do you have a "?" of something else?

@Jesse R Bassett

Not much of MAC guy... But with Windows BIOS/UEFI - you can select the boot order.. Is there something in MAC side?

I figured it out. Basically I needed to install a program called REFIND and add it to my Mac for it to boot right up. I will mark this as solved.
