"The 'grub-efi' package failed to install into /target/. Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot."
i installed this over Windows and i dont have any other operating system!
I chose install over windows and it confirmed to delete the partitions I continued and now it gives me that error when trying to install please help I had windows 8 before this.
Acer Aspire V3-551G-8454
Whenever I boot the system it says no media found to boot or whatever so im stuck running the live iso from my usb stick
I dont think i can install anything else on this system because ive tried other isos too and they wont boot on the usb. Only linux mint seems to work. Please what caused this issue. I have nothing else installed on the system
I just had mint delete my windows and now this happens. please help
it goes through copying files then gets to installing about 65% and then displays this error it shows Installing Grub2 but when I press CLose on the error then it says installing crashed!!! please help.
EDIT: i found this:
sudo grub-install /dev/sda
is this going to work? I will try it next time the error happens...
HELP IT DIDNT WORK!!!
Code: Select all
mint@mint ~ $ sudo grub-install /dev/sda
grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of /cow.
Path `/boot/grub' is not readable by GRUB on boot. Installation is impossible. Aborting.

/usr/sbin/grub-probe: error: failed to get canonical path of /cow.
