I am trying to dual boot Kali Linux on my Mac desktop. When I try to run it live it runs through the start-up but boots into a bunch of colored lines down the screen then goes black. I can hear the cd still turning. I installed it with the same results.
I can't figure out why it's booting to a blank black screen. I have checked the downloads to make sure they have correct SHA checksums.
yes the boot screen looks the same as that just a blue background. The live (amd64 failsafe) boots then shows the kali logos crammed like 4 tiles across the top of the screen then goes to black. But when I go to manually shut it down cause its a black screen, it will come back on and go through a process. It says shutting down ok, _____ ok, just like when it boots up. So I am thinking that black screen is the log in screen. Is there something that could be making it just so my computer isn't displaying it correctly??? I have tryed ububntu also with goes to a black screen after the purple one with keyboard. The only success I had was debian. But I need kali linux as all the programs are on there. Also debian's terminal is in a whole different window from all the programs.
