    Kali doesn't detect hard disk for the insallation

    Information

    -version of kali : 2016.2
    -64 bits version
    -notebook : MSI GT72S 6QE Dominator Pro G (64bits)


    Explanation of the problem:

    Hey everyone.


    I tried to install with the graphical installation. When I came for the grub loader. Accidentally I chose the wrong disk because I've a SSD and a HDD. So when I tried to launch kali it didn't boot. I've decided to delete all files by a formatting of the space I gave to kali linux . Now, when I want to install kali-linux, it doesn't detect my disks. It only detect my usb key. I've tried every partition possible (free space, unallocated, in FAT32 in NTFS) but nothing work. If I try to install directly in my usb I only have a black screen. I have also reset my computer but didn't work.

    Photo of my partition now: Capture.jpg

    I want to already thanks all of you who are going to try help me.

    Cebres


    ps: sorry for my English I'm French

    I see that you have 3 different physical disk and there is one disk for kali-linux. Are you trying to install kali-linux on that F:/ drive again?

    Format your Kali-linux (F:/) drive and make it unallocated. Then reinstall.

    Did you keep your F drive unallocated? I see that it is assigned with a letter F.

    Hi, I want to up this topic because I can't install Kali.
    _defalt: the F drive is my usb key which isn't unallocated because it contains kali installer.
    How am I suppose to do?
    I've try to install the new version (kali 2017.1) but does't see hard drive, only my usb key.

    Appreciate your answer.

    Here is now my new partition of the disks partion.jpg

    When you boot kali installer, in intermediate steps installer asks to select partition where you want to install kali. Does it show the partitions of your hard disk. Show the screenshot of that step. Upload picture on any free to upload site and paste the link here.
