I just received a new MBP 2017 (14,3), which has only USB-C ports. I have a passive Lention USB hub, which allows me to plug in traditional USB devices e.g. a thumb drive.
I want to dual-boot Linux on this machine. I've created a bootable thumb drive with Linux on it. The problem I'm having is that on reboot, when I press the option key to show me boot devices, the thumb drive does not show up. This has worked fine in the past with older models of MBP.
What should I do to get around this?
My only thought is that the machine is not able to enumerate devices on the hub. I don't currently have a USB-C -> USB adapter. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, what did you do to overcome the issue?
The passive hub works perfectly when in use in OSX.
