Hi,

I just got a acer aspire es 11 (ES1-132-c7xc) that has endless os installed, I tried to install kali and wiping the endless os, after install I got "No Bootable Device" grub2 is not installed? I tried recommendation from the net like create a EFI partion copy the grubx64.efi and BOOTX64.efi into /EFI/BOOT/ in my usb installer but seem it did not fix the issue. Any idea how to proceed?

-Thanks

Which kali version have you installed?

Are you using UEFI or Legacy BIOS?

UEFI, problem with my BIOS I don't have an option to both on a legacy bios

I'm using Kali-linux-2017.1-amd64.iso

Legacy BIOS is not required. Does your hard drive have GPT partition scheme or MBR?

its has GPT partition, should I convert it to MBR? by the way now I revert back to endlesss os and just booting kali on live usb as work around.

Partition table scan:
MBR: protective
BSD: not present
APM: not present
GPT: present

Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.
Disk /dev/sda: 976773168 sectors, 465.8 GiB

Format your hard drive and make a fresh install of kali in UEFI mode.

hi

I did format the disk to MBR and may first partition is 400MB EFI system partition then created /boot , swap and / I'm using 2017.2 but still same "no bootable device" after I finish installing and reboot. Can you elaborate more when you say in UEFI mode?

MBR is an old generation partition scheme. There was no need to convert your GPT partition scheme to MBR when there is better and more advanced GPT partition scheme is available. MBR has partition restrictions so i don't recommend it for UEFI.

Format your hard drive and delete and combine partitions if any. Make sure you use GPT. Then install kali. Kali will automatically create separate EFI partition and filesystem.

non just with the partition, should be below:

Device Start End Sectors Size Type
/dev/sda1 2048 129023 126976 62M EFI System
/dev/sda2 129024 131071 2048 1M BIOS boot

Create bootable USB in iso mode using rufus.

I'll assume you have installed Kali linux. I'll just share how I've done with my Acer ES1-132-C5UF.
1. Download rEFInd. Using etcher or other such software, make rEFInd usb bootable pendrive.
2. Restart device, press F12. Boot from the pendrive. You'll find various options like boot windows, kali or any other OS.
3. Note the path to the kali efi.
4. Enter the terminal. Type bcfg boot dump. You'll find some list. In my laptop with Win10 installed, there are 4 four boot items.
5. Now to add the bcfg boot add 4 fs0:\
EFI\kali\grubx64.efi "Kali"
(Here, I use 4 since boot item 0 to 3 are already taken up, and the next is 4, it will depend on your system). (fs0 may also be fs1 or other number)
Exit and restart.
Press F12 while switching the laptop ON to boot to Kali
Note: bcfg boot rm will remove existing boot item/menu
Hope it helps. Thanks to rEFInd.

you need to have below partition
/dev/sda1 2048 129023 126976 62M EFI System
/dev/sda2 129024 131071 2048 1M BIOS boot
