I have installed Mavericks on my PC, now I want to install Ubuntu 14.04 but I'm not sure which file should I download: 64-bit or 64-bit mac.

enter image description here


Macs can't boot multi-catalog CD images, that's why there's a separate 64-bit Mac ISO.

If you're running on an actual Mac made by Apple (not a Hackintosh), grab the 64-bit Mac version.

Link: What is different about the Mac ISO image?

  • I have a late 2013 MacBook Pro and oddly enough I was able to boot the non-Mac 14.04 image. I was never able to do this with 12.04/13.10 which are the only ones I tried. I didn't install it so it's likely you might not get that far with it but it definitely boots on newer macbooks. – Tony Apr 18 '14 at 16:47

Most Macs with Intel processors will work with either 64-bit or Mac images. If the 64-bit image doesn't work, try the Mac image. In case of Macbook, you prefer to use 64-bit Mac.

    I think that it's right in my experiences. – xiaodongjie Apr 19 '14 at 3:09

Choose 64 bit Mac in case standard 64 bit won't work.
