Ubuntu – Ubuntu 12.04 — grub-efi-amd64-signed failed to install into /target/


I have HP Pavillion 14-n009tu laptop (i-5, 4GB) with Windows-8 OS installed on it.
I am trying to install ubuntu 12.04 as a dual boot OS on Windows8.
I have disabled fast boot and secure boot options also.
I am facing following error while installing ubuntu 12.04:

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

I have created three partitions:

  1. 38GB-ext4- Root mounted
  2. 08GB-ext4- /home
  3. 10GB Swap area

Please guide me how to resolve this problem.

Hey Ramji Had the exact same problem. What fixed my problem was that i went through the steps again and made sure I was connected to the Internet the second time. go through the process again (don't partition again because the hard drive is still partitioned ) but this time chose the option to format the partitions so that you erase the information that was loaded before the installation failed. look at the comments here Why 12.04 Fails to install grub-efi to /target/? if you are still having problems follow this instructions http://www.everydaylinuxuser.com/2013/09/install-ubuntu-linux-alongside-windows.html
