Yes installed the 64 bit Perppermint OS 6 in UEFI mode.
Yes can boot a LiveUSB without secure boot.

Currently running codes from the Boot Repair link you gave. Will update some time

No not a media for reinstalling Windows 8. Does a recovery drive count as a installation media? Because I have one. And are you hinting at erasing Windows and reinstalling it?!  :o

Installation / GRUB fails to install
« on: June 12, 2015, 11:52:27 am »
I was installing the latest Peppermint OS 6 side by side of Windows 8. At the end when the GRUB was about to be installed, a failure message was saying "grub-efi-amd64-signed failed to install into /target/". Without GRUB I couldn't boot into POS6.

I enabled secure boot and entered peppermint and ended up in this screen!




Ask for any missing details, I will provide. Please help to resolve this issue.

PS:My problem is very similar to http://forum.peppermintos.com/index.php/topic,1904.0.html, but the user didnt mention GRUB installation failure nor could I understand the solution provided. Please help.
