Hi all,

I know that, probably, this isn't the correct forum for this question. But the official forums have failed me...

I have a Mac Mini (late 2012), 2.3GHz i7 with 16Gb of RAM. It has one SSD and a HDD, both 1TB.

It's a triple boot setup. I need macOS, Windows and Linux to boot. They all do, and I use refind as a bootloader. This kind of setup has worked for me for as long as decade now

But I can't seem to install macOS 10.13.2 update on this machine (10.13.1 also failed). I've tried the App Store approach, the combo updater approach, none of them work.

After the reboot it always fails with the message:



Disk Utility output is the following:
/dev/disk0 (internal, physical):
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *960.2 GB disk0
1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk0s1
2: Apple_HFS MacHD 429.7 GB disk0s2
3: Apple_Boot Recovery HD 650.0 MB disk0s3
4: Microsoft Basic Data BOOTCAMP 429.4 GB disk0s4
5: Microsoft Basic Data 100.0 GB disk0s5

/dev/disk1 (internal, physical):
#: TYPE NAME SIZE IDENTIFIER
0: GUID_partition_scheme *1.0 TB disk1
1: EFI EFI 209.7 MB disk1s1
2: Microsoft Basic Data DATA 967.9 GB disk1s2
3: Linux Swap 31.9 GB disk1s4


The protective MBR of the boot disk is the following - via the gdisk program:
Disk size is 1875385008 sectors (894.3 GiB)
MBR disk identifier: 0xB0940040
MBR partitions:
Number Boot Start Sector End Sector Status Code
1 1 409639 primary 0xEE
2 409640 839616903 primary 0xAF
3 839616904 840886439 primary 0xAF
4 * 840886440 1679474767 primary 0x07


The relevant content from /var/log/install.log is in an attachment.

I'm really stuck.

Thanks for any help.

Well...

This is kind of embarrassing... I've booted up in safe mode, and tried the installer, and after booting in safe mode it worked...

Sorry people. :)
