    Question Black screen after grub MSI GS70 dual boot with Windows 8.1

    I have a MSI GS70 Notebook, and I am tying to get kali-linux-1.0.8-amd64 to dual boot with Windows 8.1.
    The notebook has:
    • (2) SSD in RAID 0
    • 1 TB hard drive
    • Nvidia GTX 765m
    • Intel HD Graphics 4600



    Windows 8.1 is installed on the SSD, and Kali is installed on the HD. I can boot into grub, but after selecting Kali, I get a black screen (backlight is on.) I can use Kali with a live USB, but I would like to dual boot. I have tried searching the web, and tried every method I could find, but so far none have worked. Also the live USB of mint also gets a black screen, Ubuntu Live USB works.

    Here is the grub commands:

    Code:
    setparams 'Debian GNU/Linux. with Linux 3.14-kali1-amd64'
    
    load_video
    insmod gzio
    insmod part_gpt
    insmod ext2
    search --no-floppy -fs-uuid --set=root 44a41e04-4fca-4bf6-b6da-f686daec582b
    echo 'Loading Linux 3.14-kali1-amd64 ...'
    linux /boot/vmlinuz-3.14-kali1-amd64 root =UUID=44a41e04-4fca-4bf6da-f686daec582b ro quiet
    echo 'Loading initial ramdisk ...'
    initrd /boot/initrd.img-3.14-kali1-amd64

    I have tried with no success:



    Is there anything else that I can try? I am also curious as to why I do not get a black screen when I boot with a live USB of Kali, but get one with a installed Kali.

    I would really appreciate any help!

    Thanks!

    From live mode post the results of

    Code:
    blkid
    and

    run the command:

    Code:
    parted
    and then from within parted

    Code:
    print all
    press q to quit parted

    Also, list the contents of /boot/grub/grub.cfg

    and within /boot/efi/EFI/'sub folders'/grub.cfg from the boot drive with the EFI partition. (not the live mode)
