<<The "grub-efi-amd64-signed" package failed to install into /target/. Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot. >>

Please help!

Thanks,
Dan

Did you create the installation media with the latest iso image of Mint which name must end with "-v2.iso" ?

From the live media (install desktop on usb drive)
Open terminal
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y boot-repair && boot-repair
Then in main menu search boot and run boot repair.

If you have selected manual partitioning option, It looks like you forgot to mount EFI/ESP partition during installation or did not create such partition if no other EFI system is pre-installed. Please provide details about what you're doing/trying in any case. :wink:

Thank you for your responses.

By the time the topic got approved, I had already moved on - installed Ubuntu with no issues.
