I have a Macbook Pro with a dead CD drive. I don't have easy access to a replacement drive.
I'm trying to install Ubuntu, and I can't get the MBP to recognize a USB stick as a bootable media (I believe MBP's have issues with booting from USB in some cases).
Is it possible to take a disk image and write it to a partition on the HDD so that I can then boot from that partition and then install the OS onto a third partition?
150GB OS X
50GB Ubuntu destination
5GB Ubuntu install image
