Is it possible to create a bootable version of an OS (for example Ubuntu) on a USB from Disk Utility. I have tried clicking on restore, and then selecting an image (.iso). However whenever I run the USB, it never boots.

    That may work for macOS, but since macOS ≠ Linux you probably need a utility that can clone an ISO onto a USB drive and make it bootable – Steve Chambers Aug 15 at 20:55
  • Exactly. You'll need an application like DiskMaker X. Apple also has a support document about creating a bootable installer if your more interested in that. I don't think there's a way to do it without being booted in Mac though. – technogeek1995 Aug 17 at 0:32
