Default Uninstalling mac - 12-06-2011, 10:19 PM

Hello! I have a dell mini 10v with mac osx on it. It isnt very functional and I have a macbook now so I want to put ubuntu on it. I have prepared a key with ubuntu on it perfectly but when I go to the boot screen on the dell and choose to boot from usb key, it just goes to chameleon anyways and starts launching mac! It is recognizing the key, it says so in mac. So, how do I install ubuntu/uninstall mac? Thank you!
p.s. I made the key on my macbook from the instructions.
P.s.s. Everyone says it has a built in restore menu, but mine doesnt have one! I've tried everything!

I've also tried using d-ban to wipe it and using just a blank key, the computer sees them both but won't boot from them.

Make sure that "Legacy USB" is enabled in the BIOS.
