Install Chalet OS with uefi

Post by James Tobin on Wed Jun 01, 2016 10:28 am

In general, the easiest and best way to install Chalet OS is with legacy boot (UEFI boot disabled). That is achieved by going into CMOS setup and the setting is either called 'legacy boot on/off' or 'enable/disable uefi boot' etc. Some setups, however, don't allow this. If that's the case and you try to install Chalet OS with UEFI on, it will bonk during installation with this error:
Code:
The 'grub-efi-amd64-signed' package failed to install into /
target/. Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will
not boot.

But here's a way to get around that bonk.

1. Install chalet os normally. At the end you will recieve an error saying that GRUB didn't install. hit ok and end the installation. (thankfully GRUB is the last thing that installs Very Happy )

2. Open a terminal and run the following commands:
Code:
sudo bash
add-apt-repository ppa:yannubuntu/boot-repair
apt-get update
apt-get install boot-repair

then run:
Code:
boot-repair
After sellecting the recommended options and a few minutes of waiting it will then ask you to run some code. copy it all and paste in new terminal window. (It will do this twice).

When it is done, reboot, when prompted remove installation media and hit enter, and you should be all set!

The only good thing about Windows is that it never gives you any terminal illnesses.
Needless to say, Terminal illnesses are the only problem with Linux.

Wish i could grasp what this all means.
Dual booting for me on Windows 10 on an SSD is plenty fast.
ChaletOS is already practically double Windows boot time and apps likewise.
