Problem installing on a Macbook


Hello there!

I’m having problems installing elive on my Macbook. The thing is that I downloaded the .img for usb and I’m using the dd command to put it on the stick but once it gets stuck when trying to boot it does not recognize it. I’ve tried it on the two usb ports but nothing.

Thanks for help!


Your USB should work correctly if you recorded it this way, you can try it in other computers to see that it boots correctly. I assume that your problem is that a Macbook is a delicated type of computer on which is not easy to having linux correctly work on it due to closed specifications of their hardware specs, but also the biggest problem could be that Elive 3.0 uses very old drivers and this can be the main reason you cannot make it working on this computer

In any case, since you have the USB correctly recorded, I recommend you to search a howto in google about how to boot linux live in macbook , maybe you need some special configurations or booting system for it
