  Can't Boot 12.10 live USB on MacBook Air

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  I've downloaded Ubuntu 12.10 and followed this official how-to in
  order to make a bootable USB drive:


  But unfortunately, my Mac doesn't seem to recognise the USB drive.
  Holding the option key and starting my MacBook Air, I get no option
  for Ubuntu / USB drive, but only one for HD and one for Recovery.

  However, I can boot the same USB drive on other computers.
