    Seems strange that you are trying to run CR on a shinny new expensive macbook air. Don't think many macs are supported these days. Nothing can suggest really other than obvious:

    have tried USB actually works on a different machine?

    Try without connected display?

    What BIOS / BOOT options does macbooks have that could try changing?

    Also try different methods of USB creation, different USBs etc, ports

    Basically at this stage its USB or BIOS / BOOT things that is all you can try changing. If can't solve that way then will probably just not work.

    Hi Edward,

     

    I'm not sure if CloudReady will boot on this, but even if you got it to, I suspect that the keyboard/touchpad wont' work (based on lack of overall Linux support for those devices that I've read in the past).
