GRUB installation failed MacBook Pro Mid-2009 Single Boot

Post by nakedmolerat » Sun Jul 22, 2018 12:33 pm

Hi,
When trying to install Tara I get this message: "GRUB Installation Failed. The 'grub-efi-amd64-signed' package failed to install into /target/. Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot." Followed by the installer crashing. I used the default "Erase disk and install Linux Mint". I am using a MacBook Pro from mid-2009, trying to set up a single boot installation from a USB. When I try and start from this installation I get a black screen with GRUB saying limited capabilities and cannot boot.
Thanks.

Try installing without any network connection or download a new ISO to install from
