Problems installing from usb

Hi everyone, 

I'm trying to install bunsenlabs on my macbook currently running osx 10.5.8.

I've created a bootable usb using the Mac "Linux USB Loader" and I have been able to boot bunsenlabs from it.

However i can't find any prompt to install,  or any way to get the OS permanently on my computer.

Here is a link to a video of me booting up bunsenlabs, https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bzq7nW … cslist_api

Any help would be much appreciated.  Thank you smile

Re: Problems installing from usb

That video is huge, and needs to be downloaded to view it. Much better if you post it on a hosting site, like youtube etc.

When you boot the live disc you should get 4 boot options, one of which is for the graphical install. Do you see that boot screen?

Which MacBook exactly?

I have MacBookPro 11,3, and at the time of buying it, the simplest way to install Debian based distro (VSIOD), was via installing rEFInd on Mac os X, and it took care of everything (as far as I can remember).

Last time I installed linux on my MacBook was long time ago (a year, or more) ... I don't remember details and cannot tell you anything more useful. but, as I said, I think it was more-less problem-free (apart from drivers).

Note1: with rEFInd, you most probably have to keep minimal Mac OS X partition.
Note2: it is possible to completely remove MacOSX partition. Good reads: on Arch, on Ubuntu.
