Are you sure there's no setting in the BIOS that locks the EFI partition ?

I have looked everywhere in the Bios and haven't found anything!  I have tried another distro and had no problem!  Just liked Peppermint..

Code: [Select]
root@peppermint / # grub-install /dev/sda --target=x86_64-efi
grub-install: error: /usr/lib/grub/x86_64-efi/modinfo.sh doesn't exist. Please specify --target or --directory.

See comment #1 here:

But the solution will apparently not work with secure boot, so I don't know how you can dual boot with Windows that way.

I have secure boot off... Mint was the one I tried and worked.

OK. I'm not sure if that applies here, I just wanted to flag up the error you were having with GRUB.
