Ubuntu – How to get Ubuntu download for a Mac


I am trying to download Ubuntu to put it on my daughter's MacBook (just installed new HDD, so no operating system on it)

But from my Windows PC all I can see is the Windows Ubuntu. Can I use that, or is there a specific place I can go to get the Ubuntu download for a Mac please?

Best Answer

If you have a recent MAC with an Intel CPU (anything since ~2006), you should just simply grab the proper (32 or 64-bit) version and that's it.

In case you sport an older Mac computer (with PowerPC), you can grab the PowerPC images from the mirrors. Like from Germany.

But I'm pretty sure you have an Intel machine. :)
Update: If you want, you can use your pendrive to install Ubuntu.
It's a Windows-only tool, but you mentioned you are on Windows now.
