    I've got two hard drives, one loaded with windows 7, and one I'm buying vien is white so that I should run Kali? There's no question or anything else in aurra grub? Tip to give me? Tip to give me? Next, what os do you install?

    Does double booting make PC slow? My laptop has gotten slower I think.

    Hi guys,
    I'm strugling to install Kali Linux for days now.. I have 2 physical disks.. On Disk 1 (2 partitions) is installed Windows 7 64 bit. On Disk 2 - I have installed Kali Linux (boot, home, root, swap). I install EasyBCD on windows.. but still cannot boot Kali Linux.. When booting to Kali i get "grub4dos 0.4.6a"..

    My disk partitions: https://ibb.co/MpBWqkr

    What I'm doing wrong here? Try to help with some Youtube.. but no luck..

    Thanks for answer.

    Dear all,

    I installed two Kali linux dual boot on two different Dell Latitude PCs.

    On the first PC the installation was successful

    On the other PC I'm totally stuck. I really need your help!

    Installation procedure :

    1. on the first blue screen.
    > I made the choice "Graphical installation"

    2. The two and third screens are black, with error messages
    > ACPI BIOS error
    > Failed to mount /dev/fd0 to /media
    (*) Sorry my transcription of the error messages is not very precise but they scroll super fast.

    3. the blue screens follow one another to the one to choose the partition
    > Only the USB key appears. HD does not appear at all!

    What I have done:

    I changed boot sequences from UEFI to Legacy.
    > The error messages persist (ACPI BIOS error + Failed to mount /dev/fd0 to /media). However, thanks to that, the process detects the HD !
    After installation, I changed boot sequences from Legacy to UEFI to be able to launch the dualboot.
    Now I have the following bug : https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...759#post119759

    Has anyone had this problem before?
    Ideas?

    In advance thank you very much for your help.
    Greetings,
    Bscope.

    Hi,

    I installed Kali Linux in dual boot Windows 10 (vs 7).

    the first screen is promising

    screenshot_1.jpg

    Unfortunately

    screenshot_2.jpg

    screenshot_3.jpg

    Note : windows (when it is selected) works well !

    Concerning kali, below what i tried to do

    (initramfs) ls
    > bin conf cryptroot dev etc init kernel lib lib32 lib64 libx32 proc root run sbin scripts sys tmp usr var
    Please not the missing directories.

    (initramfs) dmesg
    > too long to be trenscripted

    (initramfs) dmesg > /tmp/outputdmesg.txt

    > I plug in a usb key

    (initramfs) mkdir /media
    (initramfs) mkdir /media/usb
    (initramfs) mount /dev/sda/ /media/usb
    > mount : mounting /dev/sda on /media/usb failed:No such file or directory

    So, I can't parse the dmesg file output, I can't paste any files from the USB drive to kali's file system

    What can I do to resolve this bug ? Any ideas ?

    Thanks a lot for your help !

    Regards,
    Christophe.

    I have spent hours about to give up. One problem after another with install Kali dual boot. After many failed attempts due to 1. Unable find install media [solved] then unable find LAN adapter [SOLVED ( trial and error )] now that it is finally installed ( I think? ) there is no GRUB so I have no way to boot into Kali.

    Why are all other linux distros so easy and Kali so frustrating?

    How can I get GRUB to work or do I have to just wipe partition and try all over again...?

    I had 3 attempts to install at first backtrack then kali. I seem to have a constant problem : when trying to make a dual boot , the installer thinks my whole hard drive is empty. I've tried win7 with backtrack -64 bit win8 with backtrack and now win8 with kali. Why is this happening?

    use advanced start up option and start in text mode, it cannot find the UUID of your Kali install, you'll need to update your fstab file and point it at your Kali install location..

    when in text mode, you'll have a shell and can update Grub from there..

    Windows 8 is now 'end of life' and will receive no more updates from Microsoft, so you really should update it..

    Anyway.. Windows is the problem with dual booting Linux because it wants to be the only OS on your system..

    Once you have installed a Linux distro, you typically have to then fix grub;
