    If so, try swapping it to after the USB and see if that fixes it

    I need immediate help.... When I try to boot Kali on my Touchsmarttm2 either live or graphical install from a USB/Flash Drive, It loads and gives me a Blackscreen... It did the same in the past with BackTrack and I was never able to install BackTack on my Hp Touchsmart tm2 i3.. I am stuck installing Kali because of this Blackscreen... I need immediate help....

    Hi all, before I even download Kali Linux, I was just wondering if the backtrack 5 r3/2/1 problem had been fixed in Kali Linux. When I attempted to install backtrack 5 with a flash drive, upon typing startx my monitor would go black and the monitor light would be blinking. Simultaneously, my Radeon dual 5870's along with my desktop would remain on and I noticed my Radeon graphics cards would blow out extremely hot air, not even crisis 3 would cause this. Anyway, today I had decided to give backtrack 5 one last chance after previously wasted days, and followed these instructions because other instructions had failed me,

    http://backtrack-linux.org/forums/sh...ad.php?t=48737

    I was able to log in successfully after modifying and entering startx. Next, installed backtrack 5 r2, however; after restarting my desktop, I had the black screen of death with the blinking underscore... I was extremely frustrated not only because I had no backup, I had no recovery disks. Luckily I was able to find recovery disks online, burned them and started windows start up repair, after two hours, start up repair had failed and my desktop had restarted. Amazingly, windows gave me an option to ignore and continue using windows, next windows began checking my hard-drive and boom, windows 7 is fixed!
    My specifications are
    Alienware area 51
    Intel core i7 960 bloomfield socket 1366 LGA
    Radeon HD 5870
    12gb RAM
    Thank you...
    By the way, Backtrack works using Vmware Workstation, but I wanted to install it in order to use pyrit and my gpus to go through dictionaries much faster because my alienware m18x is too slow, also my laptop has nvidia graphics cards. May that be the problem with my desktop? If so, I may consider selling my graphics cards and buying a nvidia titan. thanks.

    I used Unebootin in windows to make a bootable kali usb. worked great - does it take forever to install? backtrack was pretty quick.
    until the light takes us.

    I have downloaded Kali 1.0.2 via the website and installed it on a multiboot usb. Kali boots up and runs fine; however, contrary to what appears in the various How-Tos, the grub boot menu does not present me with the option to Install (either in Graphical or Text mode); all I have are various "Live" options.

    Any advice?
