    Exclamation Installing Kali Linux from USB into new Razer Blade 14

    Hello,

    I am getting the following error after trying to install Kali Linux in my new Razer Blade 14 which had Windows 11 before. I am following this tutorial:
    https://www.***********************-H6Qg3V-wSw
    and I get an error after "Finish the Installation" and I click "Continue" to boot the new system

    It is my first time installing Kali and I don't want to break anything. I haven't tried anything yet. Please let me know if you need additional information from me. Thank you!

    You need to disable secure boot in the BIOS

    Thank you for your reply! How do I go back to that Menu? Is restarting the computer safe?

    First off, are you planning on dual booting Kali?
    Only running Kali Bare Metal?
    Or just trying Kali out?

    Dual boot means setting up several partitions and a bit of fiddling to get Kali and Windows to play nice together..

    Bare Metal will give you good Kali performance, but you may have to jump through some hoops to get everything working properly on it, from GPU to possibly WiFi - check its specs and ensure you have any drivers etc before you start, unless it has an Ethernet port to plug into whilst installing Kali

    Your laptop is more than capable of running Kali in a VM with good performance, so if you only want to try Kali out, that would be my recommendation to install, you can use Oracles Virtual Box or VMWare Player for this for free, and then you don't need to worry about messing up your gaming laptop;

    https://www.virtualbox.org/

    https://www.vmware.com/products/workstation-player.html


    If you still really want to run Kali 'Bare Metal' as the only installed OS, then according to the Razer website, its the F1 key or delete key at boot to enter the BIOS to turn of secure boot;

    Thank you for your reply. I am running Kali as the only OS in my computer. I have a couple of computers and I bought a new one just to run Kali.

    That's the link of the tutorial I am watching. (Remove the # to get the link)

    I already had the secure boot disabled the first time I tried and the error I posted is the error I got the first time. I am posting some images of my BOOT Menu

    I've also gone through the process of using an ethernet cable and saving Kali on a driver. In the link tutorial I posted, I got to minute 11:17 "Installation Complete" and when I click Continue, that is the error I got.

    Thank you!

    It does look a firmware issue with your chipset, if you can boot far enough to get a grub prompt, then boot it in advanced mode with a terminal and copy across the firmware to /lib/firmware

    latest firmware file available here;

    https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux...x-firmware.git


    I must admit, with most flavours of Linux I am thinking of installing, I often start with a live USB version so I can find out what I'm going to have issues with before I start.. without a system that at least boots to a CLI it can be problematic just finding out what is needed.

    I really appreciate your reply.

    It's my first time doing it and I don't want to mess up, could you please give me a more detail set of instructions on how to do this? specially on
    1. "boot in advanced mode"
    2. "copy across the firmware to /lib/firmware"

    Isn't the tutorial I followed with a live USB version?

    Thank you so much for your reply!

    A live USB version is a bootable USB and runs Kali from a USB drive.

    An installer USB version is for installing Kali to an internal Hard drive, did you download the 'bare metal' ISO?

    https://www.kali.org/get-kali/#kali-bare-metal


    You need to let it install all 'non free' drivers and firmware when you do the install, some of your laptops chipsets may well not work without it.

    Most problems installing Linux, not just Kali are usually driver and firmware related.

    I am still having issues. How do I enter the advance boot option with terminal? Are there more specific guides to resolve this issue? I downloaded the Kali Linux 2022.3 Changelog Installer 64-bit 2.9G

    First of, can you boot from a live USB and actually run your laptop;

    If you want to run 'Only Kali' on the laptop you will probably need to use a live Linux distro (Any will work), and completely wipe the 'hard drive storage', I suspect that your EFI section still has remnants of the old set up on it and its causing problems upon reboot. You can use a programme called efibootmgr to alter these settings.

    on Deb



    On top of that, the age of your laptop means it will be a UEFI (GPT disK) set up, so to boot Kali you probably need to also create a single 1 MB partition of FAT32 that is simple 'there' hard disk, so that it will pick up the UEFI boot set uo

    It's been a few months since I started this thread and I still cannot install Kali on my new computer. I have not been able to use this computer at all. This are the only screens I see as I turn on the computer.

    I have deleted Windows 11 which is what it originally came with. I have then attempted to install Kali through a thumb drive with an iso file.

    How do I delete everything on the computer to restart the process?
    Or who can I talk to that can help me with the actual steps on how to solve this?

    Thank you.

    In your BIOS screen you need to choose 'secure boot' and in the menu you should then see, disable secure boot or turn on CSM mode, whichever way it is listed in the secure boot menu!

    You have not yet turned off secure boot..

    also I note from your BIOS screenshots your system wantys to boot in UEFI mode from a USB stick, this will fail, a USB stick is a MBR device, you cannot boot it until secure boot is OFF
