I have a 2010 Macbook pro running Mavericks and Windows 7 on a 250gb SSD. I just removed the cd drive and installed my old 250 gb hard drive. So now I have two drives. I would like to make the hard drive purely for a linux distribution.
How should I go about doing this?
Some things to note/ consider: 1. I have no CD drive so I would like to boot up from a USB. 2. I read that Mavericks has issues with dual booting. So I can't trust many sources? 3. What file format should I erase the new drive to. 4. Also should I use rEFInd for booting purposes? 5. I am aware there are plety of tutorials that walk you through installing linux but I want to have A second hard drive JUST for linux.
My current plan is: Reformat drive with Mac OS Extended (journalized).... Install rEFInd.... Burn ubuntu ISO to flash drive... install ubuntu though rEFInd?
I have no clue if this is at all correct
Thanks in advance...
