gggrr please help!!

OK my situation: I'm struggling with my 32bit MacBook with a defect dvd drive.

Managed to make an bootable USB stick, but the macbook won't recognize this stick, when booting up and pressing the option key. I made an separate partition on the hdd but did't manage to make this bootable with a version of elementaryOS. I tried to copy ElementaryOS on the partition by the restore function of Disk Utility (OSX). An error makes this impossible.

Does anyone knows a nifty trick to: Make my old macbook recognize the bootable USB? or Copy elementaryOS on the hdd and boot from this partition?

I ran out of options and I hope on somebody out there with more tricks on his sleeves than me. Regards, Jake


Thanks Rocco & Alexandr for your respond. In addition to my post; I found a 32 bit version of ElementaryOS (elementaryos-0.3.2) I think it's called Freya. I created a bootable USB-stick with Etcher on a other computer. This stick won't appear in the bootable disk menu, booting up, pressing the option key. I cleared the PRAM to be sure the computer has no preferred disks.

How can I let my computer recognize the USB?

Grrr I going slightly mad!!!
