Hmm.. When you see the boot menu, hit the 'E' button, and then take a picture.

Here's a intro describing the new changes. The Snakeoil OS WebApp is now re-written in C++ and multi-threaded. When using the WebApp, the browser is now doing a lot more heavy lifting compared to before. 

All the music players have been recompiled with tools from Ubuntu 16.04 . The ALSA library Snakeoil is using is also a newer version. Overall I do think the SQ is better compared to the 0.1.x, some have privately reported the same as well. But I'm sure you know "better" is a subjective thing. The only way is to install it and assess the SQ yourself.

My bad. Forgot there's CGroup in Snakeoil 1.0.x now. Try this new revision and see how far it'd go: Link

I have one more idea, I may be able to install a boot manager into the EFI System Partition, which may give me some more control over booting.  Not sure it will work, but I'll give it a try.  http://www.rodsbooks.com/refind/installing.html#osx

According to these instructions, it is possible to boot Ubuntu from and SD card on a Mac.  This process requires pre-partitioning the SD-CARD and copying over an EFI folder to the first Mac Partition (GUID)

Instructions are included here.

I imagine I can do the same, and then use an advanced setup install for snakeoil ?     They say I don't need a swap partition.  Any suggestions?

I'd still need you to hit 'e' when you reboot the computer, so I can have a look at how linux is loaded. whether it says

root=/dev/sda1 or root=##GUID##

If it's the first, then perhaps that's why there is a problem. Wouldn't know for sure until I see the pic.

There is no boot of Linux, as the Mini does not see the SD-Card to be able to boot from it.

Ah, I get 'ya.

Can you change the BIOS and make the SDHC the first boot device?

If it were a blessed apple system partition, yes but as it is now, no.  I think I'm on the right track, I just need more time to experiment.   I'll get back to you at a later date.  Thanks for your help.  I'll update this thread once I have more information to add.
