[SOLVED] - Problem installing Arch linux on a macbook pro

Hi people,

i have this issue intalling arch, everything works but when i get to the grub installing, it tried to install grub to a primary partition not the MBR. The problem is that it says to me "Error installing grub (see /dev/tty7 for output)" this  is the error when i press alt + f7 "Filesystem type unknown, partiton type 0x7
grub>setup (hd 0,3)
Error 17: Cannot mount selected partition
grub>quit"

Could you help me? Thank you for all and Sorry for my bad english.

Are you dual-booting with OSX?

Thanks for all.

See if this helps you.  I don't have my MacBook Pro anymore, so this is about as much as I can help.  smile
