Welcome to the forum! :slight_smile:

Did you create an EFI system partition, and with the proper attributes?

  • Size: 512 MiB
  • Filesystem: vfat (FAT32)
  • Marked with boot flag
  • Mountpoint: /boot/efi

first check in UEFI bios option

If this does not help, check boot options in your UEFI firmware and make sure that

  1. no secure boot is enabled
  2. no fast boot is enabled
  3. no csm is enabled
  4. only UEFI is enabled
  5. only AHCI disks is enabled

Then, check return to be sure that
its all EFI and disks appears and are formatted with GPT
do NOT format /boot/efi

test -d /sys/firmware/efi && echo efi || echo bios
sudo efibootmgr -v
sudo parted -l

if all is ok you can install in EFI
