Hello everyone welcome to my website and today we are going to show you how to create a Ubuntu 20.04 bootable USB drive on a macOS Catalina. Actually, I am using a Hackintosh for this purpose because I do not have a real Mac. But it is ok since today Hackintosh was way easier than few years back.
So for this purpose, we will need a special software called Etcher. This is a well-known software to create bootable USB disk. It supports Windows, Linux as well as Mac.
Balena Etcher comes with a very simple and nice user interface. You will only need to provide the ISO file and a USB drive. In few moments, your Linux bootable USB drive should be ready.
If you are running Windows 10, you can follow my guide below to create USB bootable drive.
