    Question Kali isn't starting after installing

    Hello!
    I have a problem with my Kali Linux after installing it, everything on install was ok, when i start computer i see on display something like this
    Code:
     [    20.706357] cdc_wdm 4-8:1.8: wdm_int_callback - 0 bytes
    [    20.707357] cdc_wdm 4-8:1.5: wdm_int_callback - 0 bytes
    Kali version is 2017.1 32 bit, the md5 checksum was good. My notebook is HP Mini. I also have a Windows 7 on other partition but when i go to the "My Computer" i only see my local disk for windows 7 i don't see any other partiton for kali linux, i was formated my 10gb partition via kali linux and installed it on the free space (Automatic option to create a partition on the free space)
    i can't find any answer for this, so i created this thread.

    Regards.

    Will Kali boot? If so, check the output of dmesg and in /var/log for errors.

    Windows doesn't show and read the ext4 kali filesystem so that partition will not appear in MyComputer. Is kali live working for you?

    Hmm, i don't really know, after selecting Kali in grub i see my drive (/dev/sda5 - clean.....bytes) information, after that i see my cursor on center of screen and this message wdm_init_callback - 0 bytes. Do you mean this log: syslog ? if yes, here is the log:

    Tell me if you want more logs - (i've got logs using Kali Live version)

    No, I meant listing what's in /var/log from newest to oldest. That's my fallback for *nix troubleshooting Can you use Ctrl-Alt-F3 to get to a console boot prompt?

    Ok, so Kali is booting up. Are your services working ok (networking, GUI, USB, etc)?

    Run service --status-all. If all is well, you should see + signs by services like cron, dbus, gdm3, network-manager, networking, and others. Will Kali recognize USB devices when they are plugged in?

    Are you fairly new to Linux?
