Yesterday I tried to install Kali Linux in my laptop. The installation succeeds and ask to remove installer cd/dvd/external drive at the end. But after that when I boot from Kali it starts installation process again. I continue installation 2 more times, but same issue continues.

I am very confused about the issue.

My Laptop Configuration

  • Intel pentium dual core processor.
  • 2GB RAM
  • 320 GB Hard disk
  • Windows 7 installed in C: drive
  • I have another 3 Drives of 71GB each D:,E:,F:
  • I am installing Kali on F: drive.
  • I created a root partition, a boot partition and swap partition

At my boot screen I can see 2 Operating Systems:

  • 1- Windows 7
  • 2- Debian Linux installer
  • 1
    Tell me... When the installer tells you to remove the installation media (CD/DVD/USB/...)... do you do it? There's no way the BIOS could possibly boot onto the installer if you've indeed removed the drive on which it is burnt. – John WH Smith Feb 5 '15 at 14:25
  • At my Boot Screen I can see 2 Operating System 1- Windows 7, 2- Desbian Linux installer – HackerPintu Feb 6 '15 at 11:00

I think there is some issue with boot loader.

The GRUB is not loaded properly.

And installation is not finished.


Try running BootRepair. You should burn it to a disk and then hit F12 as you restart. Boot from bootrepair disk and that should solve your issue. I run windows 10 with kali as my main OS.
