    I think for you fresh install of kali weekly image will be better. Kali weekly image runs in UEFI.

    Thank you, I will follow your suggestion. I'm left wondering though. Which partition were you referring to when to said:

    I have partitions called: /
    boot, home, opt, ( and swap)
    and I know their sda assigned values

    Next time when you will reinstall kali select the option All files in one partition during the setup.

    So, the code you supplied can't be executed if you have separate partitions? Strictly that? If it can be placed in a separate partition then which one would you recommended from root, home, boot, opt?

    Will your code still work for those users who prefer to have separate partitions?

    It will still work. All files in one partition is recommended though.

    I have separate partitions, not all-in-one partition. In addition to Swap, I have separate partitions called:
    boot
    root
    home
    efi system

    From what you said below, which one from the above, should be my "sda5" and which one my "sda1"?

    /dev/sda7(*) is your root partition and /dev/sda2(**) is your EFI partition.

    Is there a space before and after --bind?

    Do I need to be connected online to internet for this bit?
    Prior to this I already had Kali installed on my hard drive.
