Grub2 on Mac Mini

I've been trying to get grub2 to work on a Mac Mini.

I burned /usr/lib/grub-rescue-efi-amd64/grub-rescue-cdrom.iso

and it boots to a black screen with a blinking cursor, no prompt, no response from the keyboard. This came from the Ubuntu package


This package contains two GRUB rescue images that have been built for use
with the EFI-AMD64 architecture, such as the one provided by Intel Macs
(that is, unless a BIOS interface has been activated):

 - grub-rescue-cdrom.iso: El Torito CDROM image.


Shouldn't I at least get a prompt?

My main goal is to be able to boot Ubuntu from a USB drive. What I have been doing is booting grub-legacy from cdrom (which doesn't see the usb drive), which then accesses /boot from an internal drive, which then boots root= off the USB.

I've also tried a non-efi grub2 cd, which like the legacy doesn't see the usb drive.
