I have Windows 8 and Kali Linux installed. While i was installing Kali there's an opportunity to install grub and i did it. But i am unable to boot Kali Linux and even see grub menu as far as there's the only boot option in boot menu i.e: windows boot manager so windows starts without grub. I tried to fix it by reinstalling and updating grub using post grub-install : command not found instructions. Grub was successfully reinstalled and updated, recognized both windows and Kali(as there're listed in grub.cfg) but i can't fix booting problem.

  • you still not finding Kali in Grub menu?

I am facing the same problem on kali-win 10 dual boot. The root of the problem seems to be Windows Boot Manager which excludes the grub EFI partition on your drive while booting.

One Solution can be to install the os on Legacy Boot option.
