Background: I recently installed KUbuntu 20.04 on a Dell UEFI laptop, and, being somewhat new to issues with UEFI, I was pleased that the installer complained when I, not being used to the need for a small UEFI partition on a new drive, attempted to set up the drive withOUT creating a UEFI partition. After doing so, the install went perfectly.
Now to my question;
I needed to install Gnome Ubuntu 18.04 on another UEFI laptop, and expected to be able to create said UEFI partition. I created a 500Mb partition and then went looking for the partition use choice. There didn't appear to be one. Hmm.. Google showed me a tutorial with screenshots of setting up the UEFI partition on 18.04 and the screenshot that clearly showed an "EFI" partition choice was nowhere to be found in my case.
These two laptops are my first experience with UEFI, since all of my laptops previously have had legacy bios. I used the manual partitioning menu choice on both systems, and as I said, the 20.04 one warned me about not having a UEFI partition and when I went to create it there WAS a menu selection for such a partition. I cannot find same in 18.04.. What AM I missing here???
