Hi. It is a satelite m-45 . Its probably circa 2005. I dont see USB as an option in boot order. I burned the dvd with this same laptop with the mint iso. I did download the iso to my mac first and then moved the iso file to tosh using a flash drive...but I think that sould be ok ?

I just used the app that was on the toshiba laptop. it is SONIC RECORD NOW. I selected the burn option to 'not allow more files to be added later' but I dont recall any option for 'making a bootable image' in that app.
