I'm considering buying a Macbook Air as a graduation present, but it will be a 64GB SSD and I'd like to install Ubuntu to the entire disk. Do I need to create a new msdos partition table as this guide suggests, or can I leave it as GPT? Can I just boot to the USB (I know I need to convert the .iso to .img and DD it over to the USB disk) and use the default tools to create my partitions? After installation, will it automatically know that it's a bootable partition and go to it? If not, will holding down the option key work?
