I had to perform a hard reset after my machine became unresponsive. Now when I try to boot, it hangs as shown in this image: boot hang.

I am able to boot into recovery mode, so have access to a terminal I can use to fix the problem, but I'm just not sure what that fix is.

$ uname -a
Linux Kali 4.8.0-kali1-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 4.8.5-1kali1 (2016-11-04) x86_64 GNU/Linux

Here is some info on graphics drivers: graphics drivers

  • @GAD3R I updated my post with more info – Ricochet_Bunny Dec 5 '16 at 15:28
  • I tried that with apt remove xserver-xorg-video-intel but still have the same problem. Any other ideas? – Ricochet_Bunny Dec 5 '16 at 16:04

I'm not nowhere near an expert but try configuring xorg

 -configure xorg

Or maybe

 apt-get purge xorg*;apt-get install xorg* 

I would even try going into the grub terminal and checking out the dmesg | less output

Your command line is there for root@kali your gnome environment just ain't loading ... you might try installing kde and switching your kali environment from gdm to sddm.
