Hy I tried to install in MXLinux 21 AHS with dual boot win 10 on my 240 GB SSD. I don't know why but the installer stops at 95 and I get an error "grub install failed". I have UEFi with GTP. I tried MX boot rescue to but same issue. I installed before on my other laptop and I didn't had this problem. I tried to install only the MX Linux 21 using all disk, and the same issue...Can someone help me please I been struggle for hours ? Thank you!

Occasionally the ESP, boot flag doesn't get set on EFI partitions, usually on systems with the SATA configuration not quite meshing with the nvme drive (that is just a guess on my part).
From your photo need to see what the flags are on the line "EFI system partition" it is not visible
You can set the flags manually with Gparted, and then use mx-boot-repair to reinstall grub to the ESP - usually the flags should
be boot,esp - also 100 MBs seems small to me should be at 512 MBs

welcome to the forums
there could be one of several different reasons,
a corrupt download
a bad burn of the ISO
a dodgy pen drive
re download and burn to pen-drive using Etcher [Rufus if using windows to make the ISO]
check the SHA sum
disable windows quick start in the BIOS

What is the output of
Code:
efibootmgr -v
If you have lots of entries then try deleting some that are not in use with
Code:
efibootmgr -b xxxx -B
Replace xxxx with the boot number obtained from the output of the first command.
Your error code says you have no space left on the device
