    Exclamation Can't Install Kali Properly

    I have been trying to install Kali for a few weeks now. Following different guides every time. I want to install Kali on a 128gb ssd. The entire ssd is dedicated to Kali. Next to this I have 4 more drives that I use with my windows 10 install.
    Pc Specs:
    i7 8700k (overclocked to 5.1ghz, but I have also tried without overclock)
    16 gb ddr4 ram
    MSI Aero RTX 2070
    Gigabyte aorus pro wifi
    Next to this I have a lot of hard drives. I am positive I picked the right one every time however.

    I have used Rufus in DD mode and Linux Live usb creator.

    I tried installing with CSM on and off
    Though when I turned it on and made it boot in legacy mode, the entire disk didn't even show up anymore after installing.
    I have installed it with it disabled and then the drive show up as a bootable hard drive. Once booted into it I got past the big blue Kali screen and then I get a black screen with a blinking cursor.
    I have tried many online guides but haven't been able to fix this issue.

    Like most problems like this sounds like graphics card drivers.

    You can try disabling nouveau at boot time, by adding nouveau.modeset (search in the forum or in google for the correct name) and if that works, blacklist it in /etc/modprobe.d
