Reviewer: Daggintosh - favorite favorite favorite favorite favorite - September 8, Subject: Works great This iso works fine.

Reviewer: webJazman - - August 29, Subject: doesn't work What is this file? I've downloaded ISO, but it either it doesn't work or i'm doing something wrong. If UnetBootin does not work use the dd terminal command but this can be dangerous if the command is not inputted carefully.

Make sure you have the correct devices in your command line. I do not know if the dd command is available in Snow Leopard. Thanks , though I have to say, of your links the only one I have not tried is the command line of which I have been avoiding where of the other two, neither work for Unetbootin to not be able to find my USB and Etcher doesn't work with my version of OSX. Then you will need to use the dd command to write the iso to the USB flash drive. If you get the command wrong it's possible you could dd to the hard drive and not the USB so it's imperative the correct devices are and their order are used in the command.

Posted 04 April - PM. Where this is why I have been avoiding the terminal function for the rabbit holes I can perceive opening up because I don't know enough about coding to know what I am doing. To at least have an idea of what doesn't work and what does, on a Macbook of this age, where there is one option open to me and that is to buy a bootable Linux USB off ebay.

But thanks anyway. Do you have a library that has access to the internet and the ability to download? All you would need would be a Windows computer and Rufus which can be run as portable.

How to make a bootable Snow Leopard USB

Thanks though I am not that new to Linux through having used Mint Rebecca and Qiana in both Cinnamon and XFCE formats dual booted, even treble booted on a windows desktop also running win 7 of which I never went near for a year to be horrified at the updates when I finally did log in. What I have not done was what I have been trying to do on a Macbook with a knackered cd drive to replace or maybe dual boot with snow leopard to use Linux online and snow leopard for my apps one of which I cannot do without given the learning curve for Gimp is far too steep for me and yes, I have given it a good go.

But if not dual boot just install Linux complete and run SL and my apps via an external drive of which is what I am sort of doing now given reinstalling on another drive from a Time Machine backup killed my Photoshop installation - a problem with Adobe I understand, but I have the original installation on an external drive to be using it that way. So, what have I done, well I have for now bought and already installed bootable Ubuntu But I will be surprised if Linux does not work to reasonable satisfaction on this 10 year old Macbook given the Linux boast of reviving old hardware.
