Recently I was running Fedora 17 on my computer which was an HP windows based machine. Unfortunately my computer has a malfunctioning motherboard and will no longer turn on. I removed the hard drive and using a hard drive enclosure I plugged into my backup machine ( Macbook Pro ) hoping I could boot the hard drive from it. Unfortunately the Mac's EFI does not recognize the hard drive as bootable. I'm no linux sysadmin or mac expert. Basically my question is, is there a way I can boot my hard drive which contains a Fedora 17 partition with Grub 2 as the bootloader and a few other linux distros from my MacBook Pro ?. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
