Dual boot issue with Grub2

I am a noob to Linux and wanted to test a couple different distros. I installed Ubuntu Mate 16.4.2 with no issues, but if I attempt to create a dual boot (Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon or XFCE), when it attempts to install the the grub2 package, it states:

GRUB installation failed

The ‘grub-efi-amd64-signed’ package failed to install into /target/.
Without the GRUB boot loader, the installed system will not boot.

After rebooting it goes straight to grub>

again I can install ubuntu mate with no problem but any other distro gets the same error.

Any help will be appreciated.

I am running a HP 2000 Notebook PC (1300 MHZ) w/ 8 GB Ran and 300 GB HD.

Currently the machine only has Ubuntu Mate.

An easy way to repair grub is with Boot-Repair.
