Last year I installed Ubuntu on my 2006 MacBook (Intel), and erased the hard drive with MacOSX 10.5 in the process. Linux was fun, but now I want another Mac to play around with.
I've put 10.8's install files on a flash drive and rebooted (holding
option), but this brings up the Linux drive selector, and I do not see my flash drive as an option.
How can I go about installing 10.9 on my MacBook?
Update: I've now got 10.8 on my flash drive. When I load Startup Manager, I see 3 options:
Windows, which actually takes me to Ubuntu.
EFI Bootwhich produces a "no" symbol and then the computer shuts down.
I've got rEFIt running through my optical drive. When I select this, I get three primary choices:
Boot Mac OSX from Mac OSX Install ESD: "no" symbol
Boot boot.efi from Mac OS X Install ESD: "no" symbol
Boot Linux from HD: Linux boots as normal.
