    Question [Help] Dualboot Kali along side ChromeOS - Intel based Chromebook


    I am having quite a time trying to get kali to dual boot with ChromeOS on my c720 intel chromebook. I have been able to get a select few other distros to work in this way, so I am trying to figure out how to get this working with Kali. My general attempts would look like this:

    • Start ChromeOS, connect to WiFi but do not log in

    • Get to a shell and run: curl -L - O; sudo bash 9sgchs //This is the ChrUbuntu script to re-partition the state partition for ChromeOS

    • Allocate 15gb of space during the partition for sda7 - I am on a 32gb SSD chromebook

    • Reboot and let chromeOS "repair" itself to adjust to the new partition size(I have also skipped this step to see if anything would be different)

    • boot into my live usb and run through the Kali install process per normal - I would install to sda7(this is the partition the ChrUbuntu script modifies)

    • Format sda7 to Ext4 and set to "/"

    • install GRUB to /dev/sda

    • Install completes

    Here is a guide that will dictate my process in a little more detail.

    The problem is after I get Kali working, the ChromeOS will now be corrupt and requires recovery media to fix - which in turn corrupts Kali. If I could get this dual boot working on my chromebook I would be super happy, so any and all help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    Thanks in advance!

    Update: I was able to get this working by first installing a ChrUbuntu distro (edubuntu, though any should work) and then installing Kali on top of it.
