Tested on MacBookPro5,5 and MacBookPro8,2.

HOWTO: Disable Radeon on MacBookPro8,2

Booting Ubuntu Install media needs some hacking in grub menuentry:

outb 0x728 1
outb 0x710 2
outb 0x740 2
outb 0x750 0

Once installed,  GNOS Core will handle it for you. Miserly the DisplayPort is only connected to the Radeon card and thus is not usable.
