    Error booting to Kali


    I have recently just installed Kali as a dual boot with my Windows 10 OS, it is installed on a separate SSD to windows.

    When trying to boot into Kali, I am receiving a black screen, sort of like a command prompt, what is giving me all sorts of messages that I have no clue what they mean (this is my first Kali / Linux install).

    The messages are;
    [2.771432] usbhid 9-1:1.2: couldn't find an input interrupt endpoint
    [2.771432] usbhid 9-1:1.2: couldn't find an input interrupt endpoint
    [12.459685] hid-generic 003:1B19.0002: usb_submit_urb(ctrl) failed: -1

    Gave up waiting for root file system device. Common problems:
    - Boot args (cat /proc/cmdline)
    - Check rootdelay= (did the system wait long enough?)
    - Missing modules (cat /proc/modules; is /dev)
    ALERT! /dev/sdd3 does not exist. Dropping to a shell!

    BusyBox v1.22.1 (Debian 1:1.22.0-19+b2) built-in shell (ash)

    Please, let me know if you have and ideas for what could help me fix this.

    For the record, if you ask, I'm running an AMD FX6300, 16GB ram and a GTX 960.

    Thank you.

    Based on the error messages, my guess is a hardware incompatibility. Did you verify the checksums of the download, to make sure the download was good? Did your install go well, no errors? Have you tried making a live USB or DVD, and booting from that, to verify your PC hardware is compatible? Is Kali installed on a built-in SSD, or is it a USB SSD?

    If you have no prior Linux experience, Kali can be brace yourself for some frustration
