How to Install a Free OS from Mac to PC

This guide is for those who have installed Linux or Ubuntu before but need a reminder or new method. Again do not attempt if an ultra beginner.

Do not attempt this install if you are not familiar with computers you can seriously damage your existing files and or/computer.

Here are the tools you’ll need:

  1. Get a spare USB device with at least (2gigs)
  2. Download UNetBootin here

Follow these steps:

  1. Follow manual from Ubuntu here
  2. Open Disk Utility on your Mac
  3. Select the drive you wish to format
  4. Select the “Erase” tab in Disk Utility
  5. Select MS-DOS (FAT) from the drop-down box
  6. Use UNetBootin selection distribution on the USB device
  7. Install and boot PC computer from the USB device (follow on-screen instructions)

If you skip the reformatting it will likely not work.

This is just one method that I know has worked for me, so if you have issues or your PC turns into a mountain of liquid mercury, which in turn enters an inter-dimensional loop that is not because of this guide. Hope this helps.

Thanks!
