    Question Can I install Ubuntu on a late-2006 iMac?
    • Intel Core 2 Duo T5600 (1.83 GHz, 64-bit)
    • 17" display (1440900)
    • 2 GB RAM (DDR2 PC5300 SODIMM 667 MHz)
    • 160 GB hard disk drive (SATA, 7,200 RPM)
    • Intel GMA 950 (64 MB shared memory)
    • 24 combo drive (DVD-ROM, CD-RW)
    • Internal AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g)
    • Gigabit Ethernet
    • Apple Remote infrared receiver
    • iSight Camera (640480, 0.3 MP)
    • Mini-DVI video out
    • 3 USB 2.0 ports
    • 2 Firewire 400
    • Mac OS X 10.6.8 "Snow Leopard"

    I have downloaded ubuntu-18.04.1-desktop-amd64.iso.

    What's next?

    Is it possible to boot from a USB flash drive, rather than a DVD?

    Yes, Intel Macs can boot from a USB drive. Of course, provided the USB ports work.

    Please backup. Everything has a life cycle, unexpected and warning free. Nothing will last as long as you want it to.
