[SOLVED] Unable to install on R720XD

May 28, 2023
I was able to install PROXMOX originally. But after replaces some of my drives and deciding to start fresh on everything when I try to install PROXMOX now I get the following error "-failed to prepare EFI boot using Grub on '/dev/sda2':unable to install the EFI boot loader on '/dev/sda'". I found an earlier thread "https://forum.proxmox.com/threads/proxmox-7-0-failed-to-prepare-efi.95466/#post-489970" of someone else having the same problem and they were able to resolve but when I try using the same method it was unsuccessful for me. I've been at this for like 4 hours and I'm losing my mind. Can anyone point out a step I may be missing?
