    Looks like he's already got Grub. (could choose Kali?)

    Can you tell us what you see in your screen? A blinking cursor maybe? "I can't boot up" is not very useful.

    that's so weird! Have you tried increasing the brightness. Sometimes, missing graphic drivers cause this problem and just light up your screen.
    But how do you know the os doesn't start? "After choosing kali" - this statement makes confused!

    I have had the same issue with my laptop, is an issue with screen/video settings mismatch, http://community.linuxmint.com/tutorial/view/842 is helpful for solving the issue.
