I've been desperately trying to install Ubuntu onto a old Power mac G5. The problem I am having is that I can't get the install to boot from CD or USB.

What I was thinking, but very unsure if it's possible, was to install Ubuntu onto a hard drive using my other computer and then putting the hard drive into the Mac. I currently have a windows 8 desktop but would definitely be willing to dual boot Linux if I need to.

I also tried too net boot, but with no success.

I can provide any specs or details if some one thinks this is possible, and any help would be greatly appreciate!

Thank you,
