Ok, so after a pretty successful 1st attempt (dual boot working and various applications installed and configured) I managed to break elementary OS (eOS). This was either caused by touchegg (enabling gestures) or Bluetooth (this would be my guess) but it ended up with me needing to start a fresh, which actually resulted in this blog starting. Not all bad then!

Some background:

1. I’m doing this with a late 2010 MacBook Air (MBA) with a 2.13Ghz Intel dual-core processor,  4GB RAM and 256GB Solid State Drive (SSD)

2. I would consider myself fairly computer literate having been playing with computers for as long as I can remember. Mainly in a Microsoft DOS/Windows environments until 2008 when I was seduced by the original MBA and switched my day-to-day computing to OSX

3. About 3 years ago I also started playing around a little more seriously with FreeBSD when I setup a FreeNAS machine to store all my media in 1 place. This also allowed me to run various Virtual Machines (VMs) so I tried and discounted numerous flavours of Linux

So where am I?  Well, in Scotland, although that’s not what I meant!  I’m currently reinstalling macOS from a recovery partition on a bootable external Hard Disk Drive (HDD) after screwing the SDD partitions trying to fix my boot issues!

The following blogs will document the various steps to hopefully get back to where I was without breaking anything again!!
