I've updated my question. It is a Mac question but I wouldn't mind moving it to Superuser.

comment Can't boot from USB to install Linux
My USB is 4GB. I used the same flash drive to install Windows before, so it should be bootable and compatible with my BIOS. Could it be the Windows installer messed up the USB drive? I've already formatted it though.

comment Can't boot from USB to install Linux
@Джеймс_C웃, I want to install Linux on my real machine, not virtual machine. I'm trying VirtualBox just for testing purpose, and now it works. So I want to move on and install it alongside Windows.

ok, now I am able to boot into Mint in the virtualbox. However, I still can't boot from USB to really install it on my computer.

Yes, media should be fine (I downloaded 3 distros), and the USB drive should be fine too (read/write without problem).

comment Firefox acrobat plugin inconsistant
Chrome uses its own viewer. So you think the problem is Adobe not Firefox? It is the Adobe plug-in that opens PDFs in two different ways, not FF using two different plug-ins?

@Karan But Chrome never does this, it always opens PDFs in a consistent UI.

Why does someone down vote my question without any comment? If you happen to know the circuitry inside and can explain why it works, why don't you tell us?

@BonGart, Thank you, but I've already replaced it after I read the answers. Fortunately it seems to work fine so far.

How can I get the Realtek Audio Manager? I downloaded the latest driver from Realtek website but it didn't come with it.
