No rEFInd on my old iMac 2008 (well, my wife's computer at home) but I
had myself to boot in rescue and copy grubx64.efi as shimx64.efi to have
the iMac to boot again (exclusively running CentOS 7)
I initially thought about a very old Apple firwmare (so incompatible
with shim v15) but if people on the list are reporting that for Dell
servers, I guess that it's not a good sign
