    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 booting - Like installing it alongside windows 10.....

    * I am running an windows 10 machine
    * 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
    * The Kali Linux version i have installed to my usb is "kali 2018.3"
    * My harddrive is an SSD that i am trying to install on
    * I did contact lenovo to ask them if my laptop ?lenovo yoga 720? can run kali linux: and they said that the yoga laptops are not tested with kali linux yet.
    * I have been contacting Intel to ask if my graphic card can run ?Kali Linux? and the answer i got was: I have not got an answer yet
    * The hash on the kali linux iso file is verified, with other words the USB is working perfectly.
    * I have also tested the usb on two other devices so i am sure that the USB is working.


    So here is the problem:

    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...

    So i did try to install Debian (latest version) on my laptop [The USB worked because i tested it on my main pc]
    And this happend:

    The problem I encountered was exactly the same as yours, and the same thing I did with cdrom.
    My laptop is HP Elitebook 820 G4

    Add:
    1. The same failure occurred when Parrot OS was installed.
    2. CentOS, ubuntu can be installed normally.
    3. Debian, Kali and Parrot live mode works fine.

    I have the exact same issue with my Lenovo Yoga 920, tried both Kali (Different versions) and Parrot OS, none of them works and they give me the same result.
    Ubuntu was no problem installing though.

    Kali Linux and Parrot OS are both derived from Debian Linux, so I think the problem originated in Debian Linux.
