    Kali linux install from usb - Freeze & black screen

    Hi.
    I am running an "Lenovo Yoga 720" laptop.
    And for over a week now i have been having an issue installing kali linux - dual boosting - Like installing it alongside windows 10.....

    * So i have created an USB with kali linux
    * I turned my laptop from RAID ---> AHCI
    * I turned off "secure boot"
    * I have UEFI activated and NOT: LEGACY

    So when i start the usb from boot menu this happens:

    There is just this black box and then everyting freeze and i have to hold down the power button to shut down the laptop...

    * I am running an windows 10 machine
    * The Kali Linux version i have is "kali 2018.3"
    * My harddrive is an SSD that i am trying to install on

    Hmm, have you verified the hash, to ensure your download is ok? I'd also verify your USB media is error-free.

    Assuming the above 2 things are fine, the next thing to consider is video card incompatibility. Once you have the specifics on your video card, I'd search the forums, and/or Debian websites.

    Hello. Yes the usb is working 100%. I have tested it in three other computers with success

    So it's not hardware. I'm assuming the hash of your ISO verified ok?

    Over the years, I've had weird install problems, only to discover the hash of my ISO didn't match the one from kali.org

    Soo the usb with the ISO, does work on two other ocmputers. So i assume that the hash is working (verified)
