    Kali Linux Live USB Graphical Install help needed

    Hello, I've got a problem with Live Kali Linux when I choose Graphical Install.

    I'm using Kali Linux 32-bit Light, I'll put my specs at the bottom of the thread

    The first issue that I had was that when I booted into the Kali Linux menu, I chose Graphical Install, then it got stuck at a black screen with a cursor in the top left corner.

    My solution was to add "nomodeset" to the "Boot settings", and that led to my second problem,

    Then it got stuck at another error: "Probing EDD (edd=off to disable)", I tried using edd off and the message no longer appeared but it still didn't progress.

    I don't know what else to try, any help would be really appreciated

    Specs:
    Model: Acer Aspire One Cloudbook 14
    Processor: Intel® Celeron® N3050 1.6 GHz; Dual-Core
    Ram: DDR3L 2 GB (standard)
    Storage: 32 GB SSD
    Graphics: Intel® HD Graphics DDR3L Shared graphics memory

    Boot Mode: I'm using Legacy because UEFI won't boot into Flash Drive

    Win32 Disk Imager was used to put Kali on the Flash Drive.

    Please either comment on here or message me on Discord to make it more convenient.: ElectricWater#7860

    Have you verified the hashes of the download, to ensure it's valid? Can you run Kali in live mode on this machine?

    It's from the official site, and no, none of the options from the boot up menu will work properly on this PC.

    Any other suggestions?

    Not sure I follow your answer. When you hashed the download, it matched the hash from the Kali website? And when you try to boot the PC from Kali live, it won't boot?

    I'm not sure what a hash is. It will boot into the selection menu but choosing what to boot into such as Graphical Install or Live Kali will not work properly.

    When you boot kali, choose Advance options>Install in graphical mode.

    ElectricWater, try booting in "failsafe" mode, and see if it works for you.
