    Black screen when Installing in graphical mode (dual booting)

    Hi, I have been recently trying to install Kali Linux but when I press Install in graphical mode (From Advanced Options in Kali Boot Menu) it just appears as a black screen. I have taken a look at a person's thread who had the exact same problem: https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...ck-box-freeze) but the setting he changed didn't affect my laptop so I am not sure what I must do to stop it from giving me a black screen and proceed with my installation.

    My laptop is an HP ProBook 440 G5 with Windows 10 Pro 64-bit and i7 Processor.(From dxdiag) As display I have Intel(R) UHD Graphics 620 and as Render I have NVIDIA GeForce 930MX.

    Thanks for your help in advance.

    That's Optimus and it's a pain on any Linux. May I suggest installing in text mode then dealing with the driver later on.
