How is Zorin's compatibility on iMac?

Hi everyone,

For the past months, I have been converting people to Zorin, and all of them were super happy :smiley:
Since it works really great, I have been thinking to install it on an iMac 14.4 (21.5-inch, Mid 2014 with Big Sur). I could not find any article on how much it is compatible with this machine, especially for the wireless mouse, keyboard, and trackpad.
In the old forum, there is this article for the installation (, but it's very outdated: is it still valid?

Many posts in the Zorin forums are related to older iMacs with wired keyboard and mouse. Are there some ways to use wireless devices?

Finally, is dual boot an option? Or is better/safer to have only Zorin in the machine?


English isn't my first language, so please excuse any mistakes.

You will want to use rEFInd

Here is a recent (more or less) guide, including Dual Boot.
