Re: Boot MX/antiX on iMAc : Convert MX/antiX ISO's to an "Apple HFS/HFS+" ISO bootable on Mac's: iMac, MacMini, MacPro

Hi - I just wanted to follow up with some feedback. I finally managed to run the script from a partition (which happened to have Linux Mint installed) and it ran to completion. I wrote the resulting ISO to a USB stick using balenaEtcher and was able to run through the installation process. Great, t...

Re: Unable to boot MX-18.3 from USB

Please see this thread: Convert MX/antiX ISO's to an "Apple HFS/HFS+" ISO bootable on Mac's: iMac, MacMini, MacPro Thanks, BitJam. I'm having some issues with the script so I've posted on that th...

Re: Unable to boot MX-18.3 from USB

Have you checked the download's checksum? Just to make sure that you don't have a botched download. Also the install media, normally under F4 IIRC when that menu appears. The other way to test the liveusb is to browse to /media/LiveUSB/antiX, open a terminal there and enter: cat *.md5 | md5sum -c a...

When I boot from that USB, I get the message: "error: failure reading sector 0x80 from 'hd0'. Press any key to co...
