I have windows 10 installed on my laptop and need to dual boot it with kali linux.
I tried to install Kali Linux using a bootable usb. I installed the system successfully but the got an error while installing grub.
Error: unable to install grub in dummy
I searched over internet and tried installing using a Kali live usb.
I used the following commands in terminal:
fdisk -l sudo mount /dev/sda6 /mnt sudo mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev sudo mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts sudo mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc sudo mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/boot/efi sudo chroot /mnt /bin/bash sudo grub-install /dev/sda
Then I got errors.
efi variables are not supported on this system. efi variables are not supported on this system.
grub-install: error: efibootmgr failed to register the boot entry: No such file or directory.
But i have efi partition at sda1.
I rechecked this on internet and used this command:
sudo grub-install --efi-directory=/mnt/efi
And then got the error:
failed to get canonical path of /mnt/efi
What should I do?
I have an HP ay512tx laptop and have 8 GB of RAM
