If anyone wants to install Ubuntu on an old Mac Pro 1,1:

Use the 14.04 mac+amd64 iso for the installation, you can upgrade to 16.04 later and it works fine.

Install from a DVD, not a USB stick.

rEFInd is your friend.

You will probably need to boot from the live DVD and boot-repair.

It won't play nice with an OS X install on a partitioned drive, but a new hard drive or shared drive with windows works fine.

Disconnect the iSight camera before installing or you'll have no sound. No idea why.
