    Question installing Kali Linux on Mobile HDD

    Partition disks

    Error informing the kernel about modifications to partition/dev/sdb1 --Device or resource busy. This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/sdb1 until you reboot --so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting.




    how do i how to solve this problem ?

    yeh,you right;
    this is my step:


    partition disks:

    this is Guided -use entire disk

    SCSI1(0,0,0)(sda) -320.1GB ATA WDC WD3200BEVT-7
    > #1 primary 43.0GB B ntfs
    > #5 logical 75.2GB ntfs
    > #6 logical 75.2GB ntfs
    > #7 logical 75.2GB ntfs
    > #8 logical 51.6GB ntfs

    SCSI6 (0,0,0)(sdb)-500.1 GB WD Elements 10A2
    > #1 primary 349.2MB f ext4 /
    > #5 logical 9.0GB f ext4 /usr
    > #6 logical 3.0GB f ext4 /var
    > #7 logical 8.6GB f ext4 swap
    > #8 logical 349.5MB f ext4 /tmp
    > #9 logical 478.7GB f ext4 /home


    and this is ERROR!!!

    Error Informing the kernel about modifications to partition /dev/sdb1 -- Device or resource buys . This means Linux won't know about any changes you made to /dev/sdb1 utils you reboot -- so you shouldn't mount it or use it in any way before rebooting .

    sda looks like your windows install? and sdb will be kali right?... I can see one possible issue. You made your primary partition very small. Only 349.2MB? It appears you are using the entire disk for Kali, why not make the partition scheme simple. Make 2 partitions, one for files, and the other swap.

    Use a live DVD from any live distro, recover grub, run os-prober, then update grub.

    Use dvd live, mount desire Linux partition, also mount the /dev folder and change the root (chroot) and issue the command os-prober, then update-grub and reboot.

    If it doesn't work, recover grub and after that, run the os-probe and update-grub

    That seems to be an UUID problem..Somehow they were modify perhaps due to expanding or shrinking partitions, reconnecting a HDD to a different IDE-SATA port, etc.

    Luck.
