I have a MacBook and I would like to check out Fedora. I have created a bootable USB stick with UNetbootin, but it won't boot on my mac. It does on a friends PC (win7). I think this has to do with BIOS vs. EFI, bit how can I solve the problem so I can boot from it on my mac.
anyone? I can do stuff trought terminal if that's whats needed...– user1009013Dec 22, 2011 at 21:39
The Ubuntu website has great guide on how to do this in OS X.
The previous answer just includes a link to Ubuntu's instructions, so I'll summarize the steps. I've used these steps to create Ubuntu installation media for a Dell server configured for EFI boot.
- Launch Disk Utility
- Select View -> Show All Devices
- Right-click or select the target device, and choose "Erase".
- Choose MS-DOS (FAT), GUID Partition Map
- Click "Erase"
Once complete, download and run Etcher. Select your ISO and click "Flash".
1Very simple, thanks so much for this! Worked for me (oct. 2019) with a old MacBooc Air.– TobyOct 19, 2019 at 13:24
