Its not a problem with corruption or incorrect formatting. I put the USB into another (newer) MacBook and can boot into it absolutely fine. This is a problem with my MacBook not being able to boot from USBs

comment Dual boot Kali with Mac
I also thought the rEFInd tool was only needed for booting into OSs that don't support EFI booting. Kali 1.0.8 does support it so would I need to use rEFInd?

comment Dual boot Kali with Mac
I tried using rEFInd. If I boot into the Kali USB using rEFInd it gives a list of errors (all the same): Error: not found from LocateDevicePath and it tells me to press any key to continue, which takes me back to the rEFInd menu.

comment make it easier to call often used terminal commands
That will probably work but isn't the idea of putting something into a directory in your PATH that you don't have to address it like that? I thought that having it in the PATH meant that you could call just the filename from any directory and it would be found?

comment homebrew broken after time machine restore
sam$ /usr/local/Cellar/ffmpeg/2.1.4/bin/ffmpeg dyld: Library not loaded: /usr/local/lib/libx264.125.dylib Referenced from: /usr/local/Cellar/ffmpeg/2.1.4/bin/ffmpeg Reason: image not found Trace/BPT trap: 5 So that didn't work. Uninstall ffmpeg then install ffmpeg does work but thats just a real pain to have to do for every package that I have! Im really not happy with Time Machine for this... I thought the whole idea was that it backed EVERYTHING up for this scenario :(
