    Dell Inspiron mini 10

    Having some issues installing on this machine. I've watched tutorials, read this thread, can't seem to figure it out.
    After the install, I get an "ACPI error: could not enable powerbutton event", also says "trying to get vblank count for disabled" twice, then a "reg 00000000 save 00000000", then "kvm: disabled by bios", then "dell_smm_humon: unable to get SMM Dell signature"

    It's just stuck on that screen.

    Help please?

    Need help with booting Kali LInux after install

    I'm trying to single boot. I finish the install and everything seems to work out fine, but when I press f10 on the startup and enter Boot theres not Kali Linux option. I go to the bios, disable fast boot and put the boot mode to legacy, also disable safe boot, but the kali linux boot just doesn't show up. Then I boot the live image from the USB drive and check the hard drive and Kali Linux is installed and all the boot files are there. I restart the computer and there is still no boot option.

    Follow this thread to re-install grub: https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...ith-Windows-10

    I want to see the screenshot of your f10 boot menu options and UEFI settings. Switch back to UEFI. LegacyBIOS is unnecessary.

    I think Etcher.io helps you install a liveusb

    AABoyels posted a question but I see no answer for it... I am experiencing a similar problem. I followed the tutorial provided, but when I boot Kali it takes me to the boot menu... I actually wanted to run it live bit when I click on it it shows a loading message ( to quick for me to read ) and then nothing happens. I then tried installing it using all three installing options and I always get stuck at the step where it asks for a disk in the cdrom... Can someone please help me... It would be great if both problems could be solved...

    Hi Folks,
    I'm running a kali rolling 2017.1 with persistence from a USB key : ok ;
    I try to get linux headers for 4.9.0-kali3-amd64 , but not available any more : ok
    I do 'apt update' & 'apt dist-upgrade' ok
    but - it stays in 4.9.0-kali3-amd64 and don't install the new 4.12 (where I could get linux-headers) ..

    Any hint ?

    please remember USB with persistence installed this way : https://docs.kali.org/downloading/ka...sb-persistence

    df -h :
    Filesystem Size Used Avail Use% Mounted on
    udev 3.9G 0 3.9G 0% /dev
    tmpfs 786M 9.1M 777M 2% /run

    You are supposed to reboot your system after dist-upgrade.

    Of course I did reboot

    Maybe because of :
    /dev/sdb1 2.5G 2.5G 0 100% /lib/live/mount/persistence/sdb1
    /dev/loop0 2.3G 2.3G 0 100% /lib/live/mount/rootfs/filesystem.squashfs

    the new linux-image ins't installing ? Or I did miss a step somewehre..

    /usr/sbin/update-initramfs.orig.initramfs-tools -c -k 4.12.0-kali1-amd64

    root@kali:~# ls -al /boot/

    ls -al /lib/live/mount/rootfs/filesystem.squashfs/
    ..
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Apr 16 04:41 initrd.img -> boot/initrd.img-4.9.0-kali3-amd64
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 33 Apr 16 04:41 initrd.img.old -> boot/initrd.img-4.9.0-kali3-amd64
    ...
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 Apr 16 04:41 vmlinuz -> boot/vmlinuz-4.9.0-kali3-amd64
    lrwxrwxrwx 1 root root 30 Apr 16 04:41 vmlinuz.old -> boot/vmlinuz-4.9.0-kali3-amd64

    Hello there!

    I have a problem booting a KALI x64 iso (latest) on a new Notebook that only supports UEFI. When I boot it (disabled save boot), I only get a black screen with a white "-" or "_" sign in the bottom right corner -it is not blinking so I guess it is not a cursor.

    When I replace the efi/boot/* files on the stick with files from another image which I can successfully boot, then this *.efi is executed and runs (though of course fails to further boot as other files are missing) - I just did this to check if the efi folder is scanned and contents executed by the UEFI.

    So I think something is not working correctly with the bootx64.efi or what it wants to do.

    I also tried various options in Rufus on Windows to copy the iso to the usb stick. Namely MBR/GPT FAT32/NTFS - I either dont get any booting at all or I get the same result (black screen with "-" in lower right corner).

    I also tried copying another bootable ISO to the same stick - which works, so the stick itself is running fine as it is.

    Any ideas what I can do to troubleshoot this?

    Thanks for your input!

    can't seem to add persistence. OSX doesn't recognize the "du" listing it as an illegal option.

    end=7gb
    read start _ < <(du -bcm kali-linux-2016.2-amd64.iso | tail -1); echo $start
    parted /dev/sdb mkpart primary $start $end
