I have a mid-2010 MacBook Pro running 10.6.8. My HD is partitioned to dual boot Ubuntu.


I've recently downloaded Mavericks and tried to install it but I get the error: "This disk cannot be used to start up your computer."

I've already checked my root directory for any backup files (even though I use an external firewire drive for Time Machine backups).


Has anyone else had issues with installing on a dual boot drive?


Thanks in advance!

MacBook Pro (15-inch 2.53 GHz), Mac OS X (10.6.8)
