    please help!!

    OK my situation:
    I'm struggling with my 32bit MacBook with a defect dvd drive.

    Managed to make an bootable USB stick, but the macbook won't recognize this stick, when booting up and pressing the option key.
    I made an separate partition on the hdd but did't manage to make this bootable with a version of elementaryOS. I tried to copy ElementaryOS on the partition by the restore function of Disk Utility (OSX).
    An error makes this impossible.

    Does anyone knows a nifty trick to:
    Make my old macbook recognize the bootable USB?
    Copy elementaryOS on the hdd and boot from this partition?

    I ran out of options and I hope on somebody out there with more tricks on his sleeves than me.
    Regards, Jake
