    Unable to boot Kali Linux 2017.1 on ASUS Vivobook Pro

    Dear Community

    I'm trying to boot a live usb stick of Kali 2017.1 on a ASUS Vivobook Pro (N522VX)
    I remember that the 2016.x versions always worked on my notebook.

    Kali version (KDE/GNOME, Arhitecture) Kali 64 bit /32bit 2017.1
    Kali installation (VM, HDD, USB) USB Live (3.0 as well as 2.0)
    Basic output of commands (ifconfig, iwconfig, lspci, lsusb, dmesg, etc.) *will try to boot in failsafe mode and copy these outputs*

    Tried Boot options:

    • Live, normal: Either a problem with initramfs or "start job for live-config is running" (forever)
    • Live, Fail-Safe: WORKS. (at least sometimes)
    • Live, Forensic: initramfs error or start job for live-config
    • Live, Persistence (with and without encryption): initramfs error

    The USB's tried were:

    • a cheap giveaway usb 2.0 , slow
    • sandisk 3.0 usb

    USB's were made with

    • LiLi USB Creator
    • Win32DiskImager

    Other Tries made:

    • Booting a 32bit Version of Kali - no changes
    • Plugged in USB Stick in 2.0 Port - no changes
    • Upgraded / Downgraded BIOS and Chipset Drivers - no changes

    At that point, I'm very desperate
    Is there anything I can still try?

    Thanks for your time.

    edit will try to boot in failsafe and post these outputs.

    I attached the logs, as I'm limited to 10'000 characters here. There's an interesting entry in dmesg....

    Thanks for your support.

    Sorry If I'm posting and adding all the time, but while waiting I'm trying some options on my own.
    Today I managed to boot the normal live mode (playing with grub parameters)

    As soon I'm removing nomodeset, it begins hanging (live-config is running...)

    Is nomodeset important in any way? Does it decrease the system performance?
    Can I get rid of this workaround? Installing graphic card drivers?

    Kind regards
