    No, I am not. I had to google it. I won't be watching it.

    I am ready to execute this code you so thoughtfully designed. Let's not waste it as we have worked for some time together on this.Another benefit is it will prevent Mr Robot fanboys from asking you same question in future.

    Create a bootable USB of kali weekly image. Make sure Legacy BIOS and Secure BOOT are disabled. Then boot into kali live and enter commands given in this thread https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...l-dummy-failed . Just copy paste them when you doubt if there is a space in between the words.

    After this I got:
    Installing for i386-pc platform
    grub-install warning: This GPT partition label contains no BIOS Boot Partition, embedding won't be possible.
    grub-install warning: Embedding is not possible. GRUB can only be installed in this setup by using blocklists. However, blocklists are Unreliable and their use is discouraged.
    grub-install error: will not proceed with blocklists

    Did you boot kali live in UEFI? Why are you using 32-bit version of kali?

    No I didn't. I used legacy.

    How can you tell its 32 bit? I'm on a 64 bit machine. I'm not sure why I would have downloaded wrong version. I recall download site being confusing and not very clear.

    Are you sure Live cd will work on 64 bit because you know I had trouble installing 64 bit on UEFI? I know we are not installing it here but still...

    grub-install /dev/sda

    Should they be anything after the "a" in sda in the code you provided above?
    example like:
    sda*
    sda**
    or is it actually just meant to be plain "sda".

    Don't use legacy mode. Switch to UEFI. Download kali-linux-2017-W16-amd64.iso from here http://cdimage.kali.org/kali-images/kali-weekly/ . Create a bootable USB of GPT partition scheme for UEFI using rufus. Then boot into kali live and run the process. The i386 is 32-bit image. amd64 is 64-bit image.

    It should be grub-install /dev/sda where /dev/sda is the name of your hard disk.

    Optional choice: Throw your DVD. It won't let you do the work. Get yourself familiar with the bootable USBs and UEFI firmwares.

    I put a brand new usb stick into the pc then
    I downloaded Kali weekly to hard drive and
    I downloaded Rufus
    I put a brand new usb stick into the pc then

    In Rufus:
    I clicked Rufus and selected
    iso image and
    set it to FAT 32 and for partition scheme and target type I set it to
    GPT partition scheme for uefi (and I also tried mbr partition scheme for BIOS or UEFI)

    I wasn't able to save the weekly iso to the new usb stick with Rufus
    When using UEFI target type, only EFI bootable iso images are
    supported. Please select an EFI bootable ISO or set target type to BIOS.

    All weekly images iso are EFI supported. Is it week 16 image? I also use rufus and when I select week 16 image rufus automatically use DD mode instead of ISO mode for creating bootable images. Now official 2017.1 tested image is released so you can re-install that.

    Show the screenshot of rufus control panel when you select that image.
