I’m trying to install Mint 19 on my home theater PC with a 120GB SSD. It had WIndows 10 on it before and I wanted to wipe Windows completely and just have Mint 19 on it. I selected to erase disk and install Linux, but every time, it gets to the end I pops up the GRUB installation failed message. It doesn’t matter what I do, I cannot get this to work.
I tried pulling the SSD out, plugging it into my laptop with a USB enclosure. I then used GParted to erase all existing partitions and re-formatted the whole thing. Put it back in the other PC and tried installing. Again, GRUB installation failed. Don’t understand why this is happening… I’ve had Linux installed on this same PC before without issues (Ubuntu 17.04).
Thanks in advance.
