US-PA-User761I need a ubuntu cd or usb that will work for my mac... I created a usb and it didn't work. I used ReFind and it wouldn't install the ubuntu.04:29
jthanUS-PA-User761: Your Mac has a CD-Drive?04:40
jthanAlso, from what OS are you trying to create the USB?04:41
US-PA-User761Yes. Well, an external cd drive. I replaced the original and then that one pooped. So I use an external cd drive. Mavericks 10.9.505:35
jthanUS-PA-User761: Well, would you prefer a CD or a USB stick?05:41
jthanUS-PA-User761: Think you could handle these? http://computers.tutsplus.com/tutorials/how-to-create-a-bootable-ubuntu-usb-drive-for-mac-in-os-x--cms-2125305:44
