HI all,
First of all forgive me for not being able to dump a log file as I can not even boot into system at all to be able to get one. Can't even get a shell. Grub shell works though.

Basically this is my rig i just made:

BSo I did full install of latest version of kali in graphical install mode. Went fine no hiccups, asked for xserver option at the end i cant remember the options but i just chose the top one. Then after i try reboot it gets a hangup before crypt setup appears and has the following error: Fb0: switching to amdgpudrmfb from EFI VGA . After that it just locks up every time even in recovery mode where the error becomes visible. I try to reinstall in graphical mode to try choose the other xserver option and it literally just shits its self and show scrambled lines across the screen but standard no graphical install works but doesnt give xserver option at all.

Really stumped as what to do no idea whats causing it and it is frustrating me abit so any help would be deeply appreciated.

Thanks alot!,
