    Hi

Install process pass without error, Grub install without error. Now when i reboot my laptop i can select in bios btwin Windows Loader and Kali . When i choice WL Windows loading OK, but when i select Kali i get error message:

    Welcome to GRUB:
    error: no such device: 91e745dd-co98-4055-bb6w-82bc705180980
    error: unknown filesystem.
    grub rescue>


    I dont how i can resolve it... i always try find some solution online but after spend 12h i given up.

    Grub is pointing to wrong partition.
    ls
    set root=(hd0,gptx)
    set prefix=(hd0,gptx)/boot/grub
    insmod normal
    normal


    ls(LS) lists all partitions of your hard drive like this (hd0) (hd0,gpt1) (hd0,gpt2). You can make some guesses which one is your kali filesystem to replace the variable gptx.

    Once you boot into kali open terminal and type:

    grub-install /dev/sda
    update-initramfs -u
    update-grub

    Check in your UEFI settings. Storage configuration> Configure SATA as AHCI should be selected. Is it selected?

    Switching to AHCI will prevent windows to boot so you also have to reinstall Windows under AHCI configiration if it is not already set to AHCI. You can still boot Windows once you revert back to default settings so switching to AHCI for this experiment won't harm your personal data.

    Problem resolved. From some reason Samsung 2TB HDD was invisible in bios until full boot windows or any live linux. I try my old 500GB Seagate HDD and work OK, so now i replace for another Seagate and i can set now in bios in boot section to select Kali. Thanks very much for help anyway.
