    Hello everyone,

    I am pretty new to Kali and have run into a few problems during the installation. I kept on getting an error during the GUI installation with GRUB so then proceeded to boot into the live mode to try and fix it. Not really sure what information to give but ill show fdisk -l and grub-install.
