Unable to Install PM8 on Acer ES1-533-P4PA -(Solved)
« on: April 02, 2018, 07:00:59 am »
Hi All,

I'm trying to install PM8 on Acer ES1-533-P4PA. I had disable Secure Boot option into the BIOS (Boot Mode:UEFI). After that I had able to boot from PM8 Pen Drive. And Created given below Partition:-

EFI Partition 250 M.B
swap Partition 8 GB
/ Partition 20 GB
/home Partition rest of HDD Space

Select Boot loader Partition EFI

During Installation I got given below error.

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


After that installation crashed. Please help me out why this issue is happening.

Regards,

Rajeev Gautam

Hi!
Have a look here, https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/471754/acer-aspire-es-15-es1-533-c3uw-legacy-bios-missing
There seems to be a solution... not a straight forward one but, a solution.

EDIT: Obviously, I can not test this. If you feel unsure for any reason, wait for PCNetSpec opinion.

[EDIT]

Actually you'd probably be better off reading pins link before doing this .. it seems the ES1's might have a weird EFI system that requires extra steps.

In particular, this comment
https://community.acer.com/en/discussion/comment/480966/#Comment_480966

[END EDIT]


Loads of people seem to have problems with GRUB on these Acer ES1's:
https://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=13306.0

Try this .. boot to the Peppermint 8 64bit LiveUSB, and run these commands in sequence
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sda2 /mnt
then
Code: [Select]
sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi
then
Code: [Select]
for i in /dev /dev/pts /proc /sys /run; do sudo mount -B $i /mnt$i; done
then
Code: [Select]
sudo chroot /mnt
then
Code: [Select]
grub-install /dev/sda
then
Code: [Select]
update-grub
then hit Ctrl+D to exit the chroot environment.

Reboot to test.

Hi PCNetSpec,

Thanks for you kind help. I had returned back this model to vendor. You're right it has some issue with BIOS and efi system.

Thanks,

For anyone else reading this who has an ES1, you might find this topic useful (if somewhat long and winding).
https://linuxforums.org.uk/index.php?topic=13306.0

It was eventually solved, but it was one heck of a rigmarole.
