I had Ubuntu 16.04. I created a Kali USB live.

I boot on this USB and install Kali on an encrypted LVM. At the end of the install guide, I don't get the option to install Grub (as it is probably detecting the Grub from Ubuntu)

Install goes ok but when I reboot I get the Grub command prompt. On top is written GNU GRUB version 2.02~beta2-36ubuntu3.11

I try commands like "find" or "load kernel" but none are recognised. I can't find the configfile to modify it.

When I ls volumes I find in hd0,gpt2 the efi folder qnd the system, config, initrd and vmlinuz of kali. But when I try to set root=(hd0,gpt2) I get q unknown filesystem error.

How could I install a fresh Grub version ?

  • hd0,gpt2 might not be a kali-linux filesystem. It might be hd0,gpt3 or hd0,gpt 4. Try them all. – defalt Jun 29 '17 at 20:22
  • Good thing you keep full hard drive image backups. Time to do a restore and have another go at it. – SDsolar Sep 25 '17 at 8:31
