    "No Bootable Device" after installing in acer es1-132-c7xc

    Hi,

    I just got a acer aspire es 11 (ES1-132-c7xc) that has endless os installed, I tried to install kali and wiping the endless os, after install I got "No Bootable Device" grub2 is not installed? I tried recommendation from the net like create a EFI partion copy the grubx64.efi and BOOTX64.efi into /EFI/BOOT/ in my usb installer but seem it did not fix the issue. Any idea how to proceed?

    -Thanks

    Which kali version have you installed?

    Are you using UEFI or Legacy BIOS?

    Legacy BIOS is not required. Does your hard drive have GPT partition scheme or MBR?

    its has GPT partition, should I convert it to MBR? by the way now I revert back to endlesss os and just booting kali on live usb as work around.

    Partition table scan:
    MBR: protective
    BSD: not present
    APM: not present
    GPT: present

    Found valid GPT with protective MBR; using GPT.
    Disk /dev/sda: 976773168 sectors, 465.8 GiB

    Format your hard drive and make a fresh install of kali in UEFI mode.
