• Can't boot from a USB on 2014 Macbook Pro


    After having some issues getting my wifi working on an antergos installation on my mac I set it up on my desktop and installed it on a usb. I could boot onto the bootable usb from my mac earlier, but now that it’s a full installation it’s no longer working. When I select the usb at launch it just loads into osx as if I had selected my normal hard drive. The usb works fine on my windows desktop so I’m not sure what the issue could be. If anyone has experience with this or any idea what the problem could be that would be great.

  • Have you downloaded and installed refind? That did the trick on my old MBP in the past.

    Thinkpad E570 Intel core i5 (Kaby lake)
    8 GB RAM
    256 GB SSD + 1 TB HDD
    Intel HD Graphics

  • Probably an obvious solution, but i just reinstalled with systemd as the bootloader instead of grub and it launches now.
