Tip for error after installation EFI bios on new computers

Postby Oyabunbaba on Sun Dec 02, 2012 2:19 pm

I was having problem with installing Linux Mint on my new laptop without Windows, which has EFI bios but it look like any old bios so i didn’t know, Live DVD work good, installation goes well but after installation, Mint won’t boot. I got messages like error of connection between HDD and motherboard, so much irrelevant and confusing. I spend whole day trying to figure out whats wrong, i install ubuntu and other versions of mint but no success, disconnect HDD and connect again. BTW I'm always partitioning manually so i don't know what about automatic.
Finally i figured out by myself that while partitioning manually i have to make one more boot/efi partition about 100MB big, that do the trick but i was upset that after 15 years of using computers i was trapped like that and no one say it clearly anywhere that this is necessary to do with new computers. That should be written somewhere on Mint page.

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.
