    I have been trying to get any flavor of Linux to boot from a live USB and been getting many errors. Tried Ubuntu latest distribution and been getting this error. Any help would be appropriated.

    Re: Issue booting from Live USB Mac

    Is your USB stick formatted as GPT or MBR? If it's MBR, on this generation of Mac, there's a good chance there's no support because they can't boot into "Legacy" mode anymore. You should try to copy Ubuntu on a GPT-formatted USB stick.
