I want to make a bootable USB disk for installing Ubuntu from Mac. When I format the USB disk from terminal, i use
$ diskutil eraseDisk HFS+ KINGSTON GPTFormat /dev/disk1
But there are other available options for the partition, like APMFormat and MBRformat. So which should work for Ubuntu?
I did some search, here's a link that discusses these three formats. Here's a quote:
But if you want to boot OS X (intel) from it, then you need GPT
If you want to boot OS X (PPC) from it, then you need APT
If you want to boot Linux, Windows, BSD, or other OS that boots from the BIOS then you need MBR.
I'm a little confused here; any suggestions would be helpful!
