ive been looking around for solutions but neither 'nomodeset'-option nor i915.modeset=0 helped me. I have a Macbook Air Mid 2011 (with Intel Graphics 3000). Im trying to boot it from my USB Stick - which works fine on my Desktop PC (not a Mac) - but when I try booting then, I only get a black screen and after a few seconds the indicator light on my USB stick is completely silent. Nothing else happens. I’m using I’m currently using Ubuntu 15.04 64-Bit.

  • Which 15.04 ISO are you trying to boot from? Is your desktop PC also a Mac product? You should always specify the version in your question as a few short months from now, "latest version" will mean something entirely different. – Elder Geek Apr 29 '15 at 14:39
  • Sorry. Im currently using Ubuntu 15.04 64-Bit. My Desktop PC is not a Mac. – Jan Apr 29 '15 at 14:46
  • Please edit new information into your question as comments can be deleted for a number of reasons. I'll do it for you this time... – Elder Geek Apr 29 '15 at 14:51

I don't think that your older Macbook Air is supported although it does have an Intel CPU so you might be able to get the 32-bit version to work.
