I am trying to create a bootable USB drive with Ubuntu with my iMac as a holiday present for my brother, who is on a PC.

Will my bootable USB work on his computer if I create it on my Mac?

It should work as long as it isn't formatted as a HFS partition, FAT32 and NTFS will work fine. – Sandeep Bansal Dec 11 '11 at 16:11
ok, just making sure. the ubuntu website is about as clear as mud about these things. – Jon Valentine Dec 11 '11 at 16:14
If you've downloaded an image from the Ubuntu web site and copied it direct to the key drive, following the instructions to make a bootable key drive, then yes, it will work. – mauvedeity Dec 11 '11 at 17:10
