    Live USB fresh install freeze at EFI boot select

    Hi guys, i have just made a new kali linux bootable usb using a MacBook pro early 2011 following every step mentioned. Check the SHA256SUM, matched. Once everything done, I restarted the Mac, help "Option", clicked EFI boot, i saw the different options of the kali menu, went away from laptop a bit and it shut down since i didn't choose anything. As i rebooted the mac and reclicked EFI boot, it just froze there. Now every time it does the exact same thing. I have the same problem on 2 different usb drives. One is a 4gb and the other is a 8gb so the space must not be an issue. I appreciate any help.

    Macbook Pro:
    13 Inch-Early 2011
    MacOS Sierra Ver. 10.12.3

    USB Flash Drive Format: MS-DOS (FAT16)

    Kali Linux Ver: Kali-Linux-2016.2-amd64.iso

    Hey LockSmith, I've been pushing through a ton of problems getting Kali running on my MacBook Pro (15-inch, Late 2011), one thing that gave me some success was installing rEFInd which is a boot loader. Check out and see if you have any luck once you install that.
