  1. I get no Option for "Install Ubuntu Alongside Mac OSX". Why? When I installed it on my PC, the option was there only it said "Install Ubuntu Alongside Windows 7" Why does this not show up on my Mac when installing. I'm using the same Ubuntu DVD or Thumb Drive. Thanks in advance.

  2. Question: I already have bootable USBs but they were made on PCs with Linux or Windows. Will this work or do I have to make fresh bootable usbs on the MAC? Great video thanks!!

  3. hey I am having some trouble I did a bootable usb with linux 14.04.4 LTS and I followed the steps but when I came to the step 3 it do not ask me to select the partiton or how much space to use the linux, it displays just Earse everything and install ubuntu or something else. I tried Erase everything and install ubuntu, but when I finalize it. It said to restart after restart it says to remove the bootable media and when I remove and press enter there flashes a folder with question mark. What to do.

  4. Hi, Thank you for your video. But I can't find my USB stick option after I restart my mac even though I press the Option Key. The only choice I have is Macintosh HD. Any idea why it happens? Thanks!

  5. when im writting this command in the terminal "sudo dd if=~/Downloads/ubuntu.img.dmg of=/dev/rdisk1 bs=1m #REPLACE N WITH YOUR DISK NUMBER" like you in minute 3:20 it returns me a message saying "dd: /Users/miequipo/Downloads/ubuntu.img.dmg: No such file or directory" what could have been my mistake? can you help me?

  6. I did everything what say and he shows that it was successful. But if I restart the computer and hold down the option key, my mac don't shows me the usb drive. what is wrong?
