Fedora 37 installation fails on Mac devices


If you try to install Fedora 37 on Mac hardware (Macbook, Mac Mini, iMac), the installation will fail towards the end with an error like this:

BootloaderInstallationError: Failed to set new efi boot target. This is most likely a kernel or firmware bug.

Note: This issue is only relevant to Mac devices with an Intel CPU. Mac devices with an Apple ARM (M*) CPU are not supported at all (Fedora Asahi SIG is working on supporting those).


Not yet known.

Install Fedora 38 instead. This problem should no longer be present there.
