    Question How to remove this error?

    Hi guys. I had finally dual booted kali linux(rolling 2016.1 64-bit) and windows 10 on a uefi based firmware. I used a hp pavilion-ab215tx. Here are its specs: (Processor- Intel Core i7-6500U. Speed-2.5 GHz. RAM- 8GB DDR3 grahics- NVIDIA GeForce 940M).

    So i have this error show up when i chose kali from grub i.e during kali boot time. It displays a lot of errors.I will attach a screenshot of the errors. The thing is that these errors do not prevent me from logging into kali. I am still able able to login into kali and use it normally. But i would like to remove this error. Any help would be nice! Let me know in case you need more information ! Thx a lot guys!IMG_20170304_121857.jpg

    You might find some helpful info in the output of dmesg, or /var/log. From the look of it, it appears to be some hardware incompatibilities in video, BIOS, and bluetooth.

    You could probably knock out the nouveau and bluetooth errors by blacklisting those drivers.

    Just run dmesg from the command line, and grep the output for keywords like nvidia, error... As far as /var/log, when troubleshooting, I typically look at the most recently modified log files. There are some directions on blacklisting drivers at http://docs.kali.org/general-use/ins...-on-kali-linux

    How are your linux skills in general? Are you comfortable nosing around in the filesystem and such?

    That has the look of a hardware compatibility problem to me. Are you running the latest version of Kali?

    You're welcome

    Got it. While you don't have to be a Linux expert to use Kali, you need a fairly good grasp of it. Kali doesn't work like a regular distro (Ubuntu, Mint, etc).

    Do you have another machine you can try? A bootable Kali DVD or USB would work. This will tell you for sure if it's hardware.
