I downloaded the .iso file for ubuntu desktop 12.04.3 from the official download page of ubuntu. I am using a 64bit system with the following specs:

-Intel i7 3610QM - 1TB HDD - 8gb ram - asus k55vm

Windows 7 os is already present and i am trying to install ubuntu in another partition. The installation goes well untill the very end, when grub2 is being installed and shows the error message- "the grub-efi-amd64-signed package failed to install into /target/. Without the GRUB bootloader the system will not load"

I tried different solutions that i found on the internet. But not much luck in multibooting ubuntu and windows7 so far.

Please help me

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.


Try to disable BIOS QuickBoot/FastBoot and Intel Smart Response Technology (SRT).

Then install Ubuntu 12.10 <- IMPORTANT 12.10

Then try to install, if needed, grub-efi-amd64-signed

  • But i needed the LTS. – sthir010 Dec 18 '13 at 12:26
  • is the 12.10 as stable? could u provide the terminal commands or links for the terminal commands of the above? – sthir010 Dec 18 '13 at 12:27
