No, you didn't. As a conclusion, I just want to say that man is never happy, never caring, never supportive, jealous, and always tries to find faults in others. Is that the same skill level posted in that article. Ok I am done. Please click on his avatar, this will take you to his account. Click the comments tab. Read through those comments and decide if he could write that post. I think its pretty clear. Who cares, its good information to have. If he did not write it, all he will have to do is credit the source. But otherwise, it doesn't really have any bearing on the validity of the information.
It is all correct.

I did excaly what you said, except removing backtrack because i didnt had the program. But when i booted linux from my usb nothing happened, everythings just started usually?! I'm using a USB live installation. Then I came across this "Configure the package manager" pop up, asking me for an HTTp proxy information which should be given in the standard form of "http: I tried to leave it blank since I don't know what to put there. Then I got the "Bad Archive Mirror" error. I am not connected to the internet, so what should i type on the HTTP proxy information??
I was trying to dual boot it with my window 8 using live CD but i keep getting this error "Disc image does not authenticate". Step 1: Back Up Files I am sorry, but you have to back up all your files present in your BackTrack partition. Step 2: Step 3: Download Kali You can download Kali from its official website , or from any mirror website.
Great read and program! Now i just need to find a program that lets you load and save from a usb stick. I followed the instructions and am trying to use the USB loader but when I try to create the live USB for whatever reason the software does not recognize or see the usb drive.
First: Prepare Your USB Drive
It only sees my SD card, which I do not want to use. I am using a SanDisk and I followed the formatting instructions you provided. Any ideas? Does this work for Intel-based macs. Does it not need to be GPT partition? This does work for intel-based Macs, though some readers are reporting problems with Mavericks. Haven't gotten around to testing that yet. Report back. Doesn't seem to be working on Mavericks- app runs, but it can't see my USB stick and therefore can't do its thing. Running no problem, just one question whats the password for supperuser in terminal?
What it so i can run android studio. Oh and great articale. There is no superuser in Ubuntu, just the main user.

You can type "sudo -i" in the terminal for a similar function, however. Thanks, as you can tell I'm more at home with android. Next question is bit more of a difficult one, how do I make it persistent from USB? Ya thought it be a bit of pain alright, trying to make it for the brother. Only starting messing with linux last week and have puppy running from usb like a charm and got mint running alongside my win7 without having to format the harddridve, then i hit the wall that is Apple.
Thanks for you help, keep me up to date. JK read the first comment; step one is a must if your USB has been windows-formatted in the past. Don't skip it; spay and neuter that USB drive. Yeah, skipping that step can cause exactly the problem you had, and pet neutering is important if we want to maintain a balanced ecosystem free of stray cats and dogs. If you got the -mac edition? I have a iMac with a dvd , and booted Ubuntu to it, but I never noticed the -Mac in the name Attempting to create a ubuntu USB install on the following system: Model Name: MacBook Pro Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,4 Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo Processor Speed: B03 SMC Version system: Followed the excellent instructions provided by Justin, "exactly".
After repeated try's only got past the dreaded "fasten you seat belts" once, the first time all subsequent attempts froze at the the "fasten seat belts phase". Thus given my system, is it the recommendation to acquire a "PC" and install Ubuntu that 'just works? I'm not sure what could be causing the hangup in your case. Have you verified that an actual CD will boot? I know it sucks, but it might help us know if this is an Ubuntu problem or a USB-boot problem Is there a way to get notifications, or subscribe to this article?
One more note. I'm just a guy who enjoys writing about technology, I'm sure if you gave it a shot you could figure out how to do this just as quickly as me. You can boot Linux from a second drive on your Mac, sure, and also from a partition on your primary Mac drive.
I installed to a partition, myself. I'm afraid that persistence really hasn't been messed around too much on Linux when booting in UEFI mode. The steps are as easy as 1, 2, 3 - assuming you don't have extra needs, of course. Great read. What are my options to boot into a persistent Linux on a 13" MBP? I'm thinking internal optibay, external TB, FW, Your suggestions for working and proven setups highly appreciated. I've yet to get a persistent install to work on an external drive, and I've tried.
So I'm afraid I can't help right now, but expect an article on this site as soon as I get it working. I could not go past step 1 because what I see on my screen doesn't match the screen here in this tutorial. See the screen in step 1 that has buttons for "First Aid", "Erase" and "Partition"? My buttons differ; I don't have "Partition". Please help as I'm about to return my MacBookPro.
Oh, it's running Mountain Lion. You need to click the drive you want to partition before those buttons will come up, if I'm understanding correctly. Very nice GUI app In few steps can be dual bootable and installable this way: Resize your mac partition and leave free space for linux using diskutils select your hardrive in diskutils and click on partiton and resize with the mouse. I see this thread is 17 months old, but the above procedure posted by maxou worked for my old Pro 1,1 a few weeks ago. I had to download a package called "macfancltd" to get my cpu fans up to speed.
Linux out of th box Mint doesn't govern fan speed, and overheating can become an issue. This general statement seems not correct. I've just copied using dd a converted ubuntu So weird — I tested mine several times and even looked this up. Perhaps it's just with newer Macs? Or perhaps I messed up? Maybe someone else knows something.
I just tried booting Ubuntu above version on Macmini6,1 Late from SD card slot and it doesn't work. This actually did work! Much to my surprise after spending hours on gamer apps that didn't. BUT now for stupid questions I tested it with a 1GB thumb drive which was recognized with no problem. Perhaps the program cannot handle a large external HD? Any guidance? No idea why a large drive wouldn't boot. Did you reformat the drive? Flash drives are probably a better idea in any case This is great! Very very cool, and exactly what I needed to find after 4 or 5 hours of trawling the internet and formatting my USB umpteen zillion times for various ways to get around the efi problem.
Nice easy, logically laid out, I like it! The catch for me is that I'm running I'd really love to get a good version of linux up and running on my Mac, and Mint looks soooo good: Sorry, there's no mailing list. I am considering a solution for you guys running older OS X releases, as I have received numerous requests about this. However, a full port is unlikely to occur unless a generous Internet user wants to oblige. Hi Justin, Thanks for the article. I was trying to create usb for Kali-Linux.
It doesn't: I cannot get this to work.
I beleave i have correctly follwed the instructions, but the computer just does not see the USB stick as a start up disk, I am trying to boot a 64 bit Intel Core 2 duo Mac Mini. That's too bad. Is your drive connected directly, or through a USB hub of some sort? Just ideas, assuming you've read most everything above I have been playing around with linux live usb on a mac for a while, with little joy. So far I have tried Ubuntu and Mint. Main issue I have so far is that they only work with ethernet and not the wireless connection. Thanks for the tutorial Justin! It was very clear.
And thanks to SevenBits for the code. I am going to have a look now at their github page and follow this app's progress. WiFi is always an issue when running Linux on Apple hardware. You'll need to install non-free drivers to get it working hint: One note: Was this a typo or is there supposed to be three files? The only thing I can think of is that that drive is massive, but I don't think it should make a difference.
What version of OS X are you using? Could be your Mac is old enough that our software isn't necessary, and software like UNetBootin will do the job. Mac Just thought this would be the easiest way to do it. Everything seems to install fine on the thumb drive, I even tried the "blessed" version of the USB loader, but the Macbook Pro just won't boot from it Well, you could always ask the developer — he commented above. Here's his blog post about the program: So I followed the instructions very carefully but after I selected my USB it showed up with the black screen in the tutorial only after that, it said it couldn't find my boot.
Which version of Linux are you trying to boot? I was only able to get this working with the Mac version of Ubuntu, which the app provides automatically Thank you for such a quick response. I am using the one provided by the Ubuntu website because I was unaware that there was a mac-specific version offered by this program. If you don't mind me asking, how does this version differ from the one offered by the official website?
From what I understand the difference is superficial, but the Ubuntu team needed to make a minor change or Macs would not boot. I believe all reference to the bios is removed Did some searching, there's a decent answer here halfway down: So I have gotten everything to work fine Same thing happened to me. For me, the fix was to ensure the drive was properly formatted, and that the ISO was Mac-compatible. Did you check those things?
Thanks very much for this software. Works great and very easy to setup. One question though: Is there capability to create a persistent live usb linux boot? Which gives the ability to retain any settings or app installs. This software doesn't currently offer that, nor have I found a simple way to make such a drive.
Sorry about that. Just found that you had posted this… thanks a lot for reviewing my tool and your kind words, and your in-depth instructions and explanations are great. I'm really happy that this has helped you! I think I'll link this in the wiki - you wrote a better article than I could have…: Thanks for making the software! I spent a long time figuring out how to do this, and your tool works consistently — and is a lot easier to explain than alternate methods.
You made writing this article much, much easier! Is there a way to do both? Sadly I don't know of a process that will work on both Macs and PCs, but if you want a PC disk there are easy enough tools for the job. I recommened UNetBootin. Email is how we get things done.
