Have run Ubuntu on an older PC before and have some (limited) experience in using it. Once I get it loaded I don't have too many issues.
Running mid 2009 Macbook Pro 5,5 with 120 GB SSD and 4 GB 1067 MHz DDR3 that won't upgrade to Sierra or High Sierra. It's slowing down and I am thinking that by moving over to Ubuntu I can extend the life of it.
However, I have downloaded 17.10 and have used Etcher to flash the image but cannot get a bootable icon when holding down the Option (Alt) key.
Thanks in advance.
