I have downloaded Sierra from App Store and tried to install but I am not able to select a disk. I have installed rEFInd on my MacBook Pro and have triple boot (Mac OS X, Windows 10 and Ubuntu). How can I install it?

My Mac info: MacBook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) - El Capitan

macOS Installer - Select Disk

After several reboots I was not able to see rEFInd menu. So I have tried to reinstall. Here is the reinstall output:

ShimSource is none
Installing rEFInd on OS X....
Warning: root device could not be found
Installing rEFInd to the partition mounted at /Volumes/ESP
Found rEFInd installation in /Volumes/ESP/EFI/refind; upgrading it.
Found suspected Linux partition(s); installing ext4fs driver.
Installing driver for ext4 (ext4_x64.efi)
Copied rEFInd binary files

Notice: Backed up existing icons directory as icons-backup.
Existing refind.conf file found; copying sample file as refind.conf-sample
to avoid overwriting your customizations.


Installation has completed successfully.

Here is sudo gpt -r show disk0 output:

UPDATE:

I wasn't able to change my partitions using Disk Utility. I have used Paragon Disk Manager for Mac and deleted my linux partitions, main and swap.

UPDATE 2:

I have also deleted my bootcamp partition. My current partition data is as following:

Output of sudo gpt -r show disk0:

I am still not able to slect disk to install.

UPDATE

I have realized that FireVault is enabled. I have disabled it and managed to install Sierra.

  • I have both tried with USB thumb and installer from App Store and same result with one difference: When I first tried with USB I have managed to select the drive Macintosh HD but installer asked password for unlocking the drive. I have entered my account password but encountered same screen that I shared. – Olcay Ertaş Oct 3 '16 at 11:33
  • Perhaps I shuld do something with rEFInd. – Olcay Ertaş Oct 3 '16 at 11:34
  • @klanomath I have eadded. – Olcay Ertaş Oct 3 '16 at 11:48
  • I think you meant "FileVault" not "FireVault." If disabling FileVault turned out to be the solution, you should add it as an "Answer" to your question. But, was this after you nuked all of your partitions? Do you know if there's a chance to preserve all of the other OSes? – Aleksandr Dubinsky Nov 21 '16 at 15:30

It's because ReIfind doesn't work with Sierra
