Description of problem:
On my MacBook Air (old 2015 Intel model), a fresh install of Fedora 37 will always end up with the “cannot set EFI boot target” error and the installed system is unbootable.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Create install media of any Fedora version (Workstation, Spins, Everything, etc) using Fedora Media Writer
2. Attempt to install the system as normal on an Intel Mac
3. See the error
Anaconda gives an error stating that it cannot set the EFI boot target and the resulting system will be unbootable.
The system should be installable without issues and work normally as it did in Fedora 36.
I decided to try installing from the Fedora 37 *beta* image (you can get it off the Internet Archive) and that works. So something changed between the beta and final that's causing this issue.
I am also experiencing this issue on an intel mac - iMac 13,1.
I am attaching log output from the installer as well as efibootmgr output.

I believe this bug is a duplicate of:
I'm experiencing the same issue (bug reporter said it is duplicate of this issue but it failed to create a new comment). I tried to install Fedora37 Gnome and also Plasma Spin on my MacbookPro 2012 Intel and regardless of how I create partitions and etc. it keeps failing with the same error. I also created the bootable USB using Balena Etcher 1.18.4.
The following is the sha256sum of the last iso file I downloaded and tried:
❯ sha256sum Fedora-KDE-Live-x86_64-37-1.7.iso
I hope these info helps addressing the issue easier.
