Summary0016985: Anaconda disk tool cannot create EFI partition on Mac Mini
DescriptionOn an old Mac Mini (mid-2010), the Anaconda disk utility crashes when automatically partitioning, and throws an error regarding HFS+ EFI and Linux when manually partitioning. This blocks the installer from proceeding. The CentOS 7 installer creates a vfat EFI parition and installs without issue on the same hardware. I don't have any other Mac hardware to test, unfortunately to see if it's particular to this hardware type.
Steps To ReproduceBoot CentOS 8 installer on Mac, attempt to partition disks automatically or manually.
Additional InformationSteps that didn't help:
- Wiped forst 2GB of disk with dd to make sure it wasn't something in the table that Anaconda couldn't handle
- Tried standard Centos 8 and stream installer
- Reinstalled MacOS 10.14 (High Sierra), and then tried to re-use the created EFI partition in the Centos 8 installer but got the same error
- Tried to manually create the partition structure in fdisk

Will attach diagnostic file shortly.
