I have been given an old Macbook and was asked to wipe and restore the OS. I followed the allpe guides but the Macbook is failing to install via the internet recovery service. Apple them selfs have said that a physical copy of the OS could get the Macbook running again but its a problem to find a physical copy of old OS. So i was just wondering if it would be possible to install elementary OS without the Macbook having a working OS on it. For some extra infomation i can get to disk utility and the terminal if needed to and i have a windows pc to make the usb drive. Thank you for the help
It's possible if you have an Intel CPU, you just need
- Download the ISO.
- Create a bootable USB drive in Windows with Rufus or Etcher.
- Inserting your install USB drive on the MacBook.
- Start your MacBook.
- After you hear the chime, press and hold
- Shortly after selecting the appropriate boot drive, you should be presented with the elementary OS splash screen. You may now follow the on-screen instructions which will guide you through the rest of the process.
