I installed kali linux next to windows 10. After the installation of linux, the system worked normally but when I started rebooting the computer GRUB disappeared, and only windows 10 turned on. Then I installed the EasyBCD program, but the effects were opposite to those intended. When the computer turns on, the windows boot manager pops up. Is it possible to remove the EasyBCD effect and restore GRUB?

    Have you tried changing the default boot manager in the EFI settings? Typically you get there by accessing the "BIOS" when booting by pressing some specific key; The key depends on the computer. – Emmanuel Rosa Jun 2 '18 at 1:50

If you follow the instructions here, it should solve your problem. Basically, the method is:

  1. Boot the live cd.
  2. chroot into the installed Kali partition after mount binding devices and special filesystems
  3. Run grub-install /dev/<kali device> and update-grub

Alternatively, you could do the following:

  1. Boot into the Kali installation. If you can from BCD good. If not try to boot into it from the Kali install CD.
  2. Run grub-install /dev/<kali device> and update-grub
  • Okay but i have 4 partition of Kali: /boot, /, /home and /swap so on which I should use this command? – Mateusz P Jun 2 '18 at 9:13
  • @MateuszP, Please reference the documentation. The command should be grub-install /dev/<the disk drive that has Kali Linux on it> – kemotep Jun 2 '18 at 23:51
