Hi guys. I have a 13" MacBook Pro(model 7.1) with installed Snow Leopard, Windows and Ubuntu(obviusly with reFIT). I have prepared a live-usb with persistence, but i hasn't been able to make it boot. I tried with reFIT and with Plop. Any suggestions? Thanks
See all them links at the bottom of the page? Check them out, they might have your answer, though I'd just pick up a used eeePc and use that.

Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
I solved creating the live usb with untebootin...however thanks
I also have the MacBook Pro 7,1 and i'm trying to make a persistent USB installation of BT 4 but at the boot I have only a black screen showing "boot error".
The method that i'm using is this:
-installation of refit
-inizialization of the USB key througth utility disk (FAT)
-creation of the bootable USB key with Untebootin and the BT 4 final iso
-option-key at startup and choice (something like) "os legacy"
then I have that error and I don't know how fix it.
I have already tested others BT image and also the BT 4R2 with no luck.
I know that is impossible (now) install BT on the internal HD of the MacBook Pro 7,1 so I think that my problem could happen because of this specific model so my question is: do you use the same method to create the bootable USB ?
Maybe I forgot something stupid but I have already searched on google and on this forum and the guides that I have found explain the same method i'm using..
I hope you can help me, thanks in advance (and sorry for my bad english).
