I'm trying to install Archlinux on my macbook in dual boot mode. I part the disk that way :

/dev/sda1 -> EFI
/dev/sda2 ->MacOS
/dev/sda3 -> /boot
/dev/sda4 -> /
/dev/sda5 -> /home

As i read in the docs i don't install grub on my MBR, i put it in sda3 - the boot partition. I did it with a Ubuntu Live Cd and the command : sudo grub-install --boot-directory=/media/boot_partition /dev/sda3 --force

When i reboot my mac i can choose the Linux partition with rEFIT. But it only show the GRUB minimal bash...

grub>

I tried to fix it up, but nothing really works.
