Thread: Kali linux as only OS using rufus, stuck at boot

    Kali linux as only OS using rufus, stuck at boot

    So it gets stuck just before the logo shows up, making me force shutdown.

    As soon as I do that, the logo shows up and shuts down.

    MBR, defaults, DD disk image(I attached a picture).

    There's an error(?) that keeps mentioning the "couldn't determine sector size of dev/sdb, using sector size (512)" (I attached a picture)

    I know that's the usb, the dev/sda is the for the SSD.

    I formatted the drive. Idk...

    I dont want to use virtualbox because it's slowww. Not a great laptop but does the job.

    Has to be the only operating system on the SSD.

    What was on the SSD before?

    boot from a live USB and in Gparted delete any and all partitions you find on the disk, format entire (now 'blank') drive as EXT4 and then try installing again.
