    Boot Loader Install Failed

    I am trying to install Clearos 7.2 on two different systems and install keeps failing with the message: "boot loader install failed" on both of them. The message details read as shown below.
    anaconda exception report
    Traceback (Most recent call first):
    File"/usr/lib64/python2.7/site-packages/pyanaconda/", line 1600 in install
    raise BootLoaderError(:boot loader install failed")

    I tried turning off UEFI boot in the BIOS. I tried allowing only UEFI boot in the bios.

    I tried automatic partitioning for UEFI boot or legacy boot installs.

    For the legacy boot I tried manual partitioning with
    BIOSBOOT - 1 MiB or 2 MiB
    /boot - 500 MiB
    / - 100 GiB
    /home 360 GiB
    SWAP - 8 GiB

    For UEFI boot I tried manual partitioning with
    /boot/efi - 200 MiB
    /boot - 500 MiB
    / - 100 GiB
    /home 360 GiB
    SWAP - 8 GiB

    I tried the ISO that supposedly has fixed up code in it that was linked in another message.

    I always get the same message.

    PFsense 2.3.2 will install on either system without any difficulty, but I want to install Clearos 7.2.

    Any idea how to fix?
