Install Ubuntu 9.10 on external drive via Mac OS X (10.5.6)
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 17, 2009
I have no idea whether this is the appropriate forum, but please feel free to move it if need be. I have a Macbook Pro running Leopard 10.5.6 and have removed the hard drive from an Acer laptop (since I was unable to install Ubuntu 9.10 using its CD-ROM drive). The goal here is to basically install(/slipstream?) Ubuntu on this drive I've removed while connected to the Mac. Anyone have any resources for this? I've googled till I'm blue in the face, but it doesn't appear this is all too popular a setup.
Thanks in advance,

How do I install Ubuntu on an external Hard Drive on a Mac
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 20, 2010
I use a Macbook Pro Mid 2009 and at my new work I have to use Linux. They use bith Ubuntu and Suse.
I have a spare USB external Hard Drive on which I would like to install both Systems (Suse and Ubuntu) just for playing around and getting to know the system better.
I don't want to install Linux on my internal HDD and would like to keep the Book itself OSX only.
How do I do that best?
I already got the necessary Suse and Ubuntu images to install (and will burn them tomorrow). Do I have to prepare the external drive in a special way or OSX?
Thank you very much.

How to install Ubuntu 8.10 to USB flash drive
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 31, 2008
I just wanted to use Ubuntu but there is little free disk space on my laptop with Windows XP installed. So I am trying to install Ubuntu to an USB flash drive (4GB).
After some searching I came across this "Bootable USB Maker":
But where is it? I hope I don't need to install Ubuntu to hard disk first before I can use it...
Install Ubuntu 13.10/Mac OSX Macbook air 5,1 works, just rEFIt menu to fix!
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 12, 2014
Just installed Ubuntu 13.10 (Saucy Salamander) on my 11" mid 2012 Macbook air (5,1) running a dual boot with mac OSX 10.9.1. I would like to share some problems I had during install using a live USB. I followed this guide for the install and this guide to prepare the live USB. I prepared a 20Gb partition for Ubuntu and installed rEFit.
what works out of the box: keyboard, wireless, trackpad, sound, camera, hybernation, fan. Battery life was 2-2h30 hours with full brightness, surfing the web and writing a libre office file.
what needs to be fixed: the rEFIT boot menu shows up 3 unknown icons for linux (see below)
I have 3 boot options for linux a) EFI/ubuntu/MokManager.efi b) EFI/ubuntu/grubx64.efi and c) EFI/ubuntu/shimx64.efi
I searched threads about that but did not come across a satisfying simple solution, any help is most welcome!
Unable to install Ubuntu 13.10 64 bit via iDRAC
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 3, 2013
I have installed previous versions of Ubuntu on Dell servers like R610, R620, etc. but never came across this issue.
During boot from iso image it displays "Intialization failed" (screenshot attached). After this it shows the screen to "Try Ubuntu" or "Install Ubuntu" but keyboard and mouse doesn't work remotely. I have not tried it yet from physical location yet. I have downloaded multiple images and tried several times.
Any help would be appreciated.
what size pen drive to use to install Ubuntu 12.10?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 5, 2012
If i wanted to start ubuntu 12.10 from a pen drive, what would be the best size to buy?
I understand that you need an empty drive to burn an Iso image of Ubuntu 12.10 onto it. And conversely once you have it burnt into the pen drive it cannot be used to upload other files , folders or other software into it even if you had empty space left.
Am I correct?
Cannot boot or install Ubuntu 11.10 from USB pen drive Kingston Data Traveler G3
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 11, 2012
I've tried installing 11.10 from my Kingston Data Traveler (8GB), fat32, after following the instructions here http://www.ubuntu.com/download/ubuntu/download
after using a bootable USB created in Windows and then using one created in Ubuntu. I've given the removable drives the highest priority in the BIOS but it just skips to the hard drive. I am able to access the USB drive via the hard drive so it's functioning. I am trying to install 11.10 on a home Desktop with no internet connection. (I was unable to connect to wired internet after installing of Ubuntu 10.04.04 using an older 4GB Kingston USB pen drive after a new Intel DP67DE micro ATX motherboard installed. After trying all the instructions online from various sites, seems the D Link DGE-530T PCI adapter version C1 & onboard Intel 82579 may not be compatible with 10.04 and the only PCI express slot is being used for a video card.)
Why won't the USB work? Was the Ubuntu 11.10 iso corrupted?
