Hello,

Is there any possibility to create an bootable live linux usb that runs on my iMac mid2010?

Yes, with UNetbootin :)
Before, format your bootable device in SCHEMA MBR AND MS-DOS(FAT32) and start unetbootin select Ubuntu/ Live USB x64

Hi,

thanks for answering.No problems with unibootin and formatting.
I tried several iso’s but when booting from usb I got the menu and choose live but then several errors.

I got that once the problem with black screen with error messages, a reformat of my usb support and it works again.
if the problem persists maybe a google search for the error line?
