Trouble installing Bootable device not lauching, On a Mac pc

Maybe it's better that I reinstall Zorin Core from scratch. I created a boot USB with Rufus, but it doesn't seem to launch when I start the computer. I installed with Balena Etcher before, but I dread using that, because it seems to render my USB to non-writable and unformattable state afterwards.

Have you checked the bootable USB Stick is seen by BIOS and is high priority in the boot device list.

Maybe also have a look at this advice: Before you install

Gday @bobkaku ,

Could we ask you to update your profile to show the Zorin OS Edition please.
This saves asking in any future help needed.
Try looking here,
Unable to Boot From the USB Install Drive

If you require further help.
Could you also tell us your computer specs or Brand & Model?

Hope this helps

I have Zorin installed on old Macbook. I was able to force the machine to boot off the USB, by pressing Option key.

Yes the link provided in the above post, gives these instructions

Quote from above link.
On a Mac. Press and hold the ⌥ Option key at start-up. If you’re using a wireless keyboard, you may need to plug in a USB keyboard instead to be able to select the boot device.

Have changed the title to reflect your computer make.
This will help others, that may have the same issue.
