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

This is the error I get every time I try to install 18.04. I have formatted the MBR and C drive of Windows and currently I have only dev/sda to install. I don't want to lose other data which I had in Windows 10.

What should be the status of legacy mode and secure boot while installing Ubuntu 18.04?

I see only dev/sda instead of dev/sda2, dev/sda3.

What should I do?

  • @PRATAP sorry, it's 18.04.1 – user227495 Aug 23 '18 at 9:15
  • "I don't want to loose other data which I had in Windows 10." And that's why you make a backup before messing with your system. – Rinzwind Aug 23 '18 at 9:15
  • Thanks @Rinzwind . My previous installation had a virus. Therefore, I thought it was not safe to move files before checking to another PC. My best bet is installing Ubuntu, reviewing files and then move them. How can I achieve " bootable USB should have a GPT ". I am not skilled. If you don't mind, can you please tell me what I should do in a sentence or two ? – user227495 Aug 23 '18 at 9:21
  • 2 sentences? Not really. But the 3 topics I posted in comments should be enough ;-) – Rinzwind Aug 23 '18 at 9:52

The point is that you need to have EFI System Partition. So create one with 512MB. For detailed installation instructions check: Ubuntu 18.04 LTS Minimal Install Guide
