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:

setparams 'Debian GNU/Linux. with Linux 3.14-kali1-amd64'

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!
