comment What is the easiest way to boot Linux from a USB drive on Intel Mac?
Yes, EFI, Extensible_Firmware_Interface, as I said. No I don't need an Intel Mac, the principle is the same on any computer. It won't boot from USB as long as you don't tell your computer to boot from USB, and for as long as the boot device is not marked as active and for as long as you have the wrong /dev/sdXY in the grub boot config... you need the shortcut-key to configure the boot device order. By default, your computer won't be booted from a USB paritition marked as active, and this default makes sense.

comment What is the easiest way to boot Linux from a USB drive on Intel Mac?
@ovidius: Every computer has a BIOS (basic input-output system), even Apple computers. And if it doesn't work, then that means you didn't manage to mark the USB partition as 'ACTIVE' (=boot) [or your BIOS doesn't support booting from USB or has disabled it]. u start the system and be4 display comming press F2 or F3 or Esc or Delete hold any key for a second then it will show u other wise go to apple website and ask help they help u. New Apple computers use EFI , so you need to know the shortcut-key combination.
