This question already has an answer here:

For installing a dual-boot Debian-Buster on a MacBook Pro (Z0WX) (I would never buy that for myself, but it's needed for work).

Steps I succeeded:

  • Disable SIP
  • Disable secure boot
  • Resize/create partitions from Mac OS
  • Create an USB stick with dd command line tool.
  • Install rEFInd bootloader
  • Manage to get the installer to start.

The problem is when the installation arrives to the disk-partitioning tool: The laptop internal SSD is not detected, and all I can select/partition is the USB installation stick.

So my questions are:

  • Why the internal SSD is not detected? and
  • How to get the internal SSD detected? So I can install Linux.

The internal disk is detected by both: MacOs and Windows10 boots.
