    Request to interpret Boot Repair pastbin

    Hi: I am trying to install 18.10 on an old Apple MacBook Pro. I made the mistake of upgrading a previous 18.10 installation to 20.10 and 22.04. The last upgrade confronted me with unsupported nVidia driver issues. I decided to go back to 18.10 but somehow lost my uefi boot capability. I installed OSX Leopard, the version that came with the machine (I said it was old) and that works, but I can't simply install ubuntu from the live-dvd because I can get it to boot into uefi.

    Here is my Boot Repair pastebin URL: https://paste.ubuntu.com/p/FDzrY7syhH/

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Thank you,
    Peter

    You should not install 18.10. That is EoL or end of life.
    https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases
    If 20.04 worked better to use it, as it is LTS - long term support.

    You have to shrink your Apple partition to make unallocated space for Ubuntu and boot Ubuntu live installer in UEFI boot mode.
    If older system, a lightweight flavor may be better, but they only have 3 year support.

    Light weight flavors:
    Lubuntu, xubuntu, Ubuntu MATE, Budgie
