I made a fresh install of Kali-Linux 2020.2 on my new laptop. But when I try to boot up Kali, am facing these 2 errors,

  1. ACPI Error: AE_NOT_FOUND (without any cmd line arguments, booting stops at [ 1.035097])
  2. usci_acpi error. (with nomodeset argument in cmd, booting stops at [ 9.803092])

By pressing Ctrl+Alt+F4 I managed to get a console login and updated the whole system and installed Nvidia drivers. But the error still exists. Detailed dmesg errors and warnings are listed below.


System Specifications:

  • Asus TUF Gaming A15
  • AMD Ryzen 5 4600H
  • Nvidia GTX 1650 4GB

Solved it, amdgpu-drm and some missing network driver were causing the problem. In default, kali-Linux was using amdgpu-drm, so I hade to update the whole system and install Nvidia drivers through tty1. Pass nvidia-drm.modeset=1as boot argument for the first boot.

Step 1: Update the whole system.

sudo apt update && sudo apt full-upgrade -y

Step 2: Download the latest Linux-firmware from Here.

git clone https://git.kernel.org/pub/scm/linux/kernel/git/firmware/linux-firmware.git

Step 3: Copy the missing firmware to /lib/firmware/

sudo cp -r {clone's_PATH}/linux-firmware/{rtw88,rtl_nic,nvidia,amdgpu} /lib/firmware/

Step 4: Update the kernel with new changes (Don't worry it will list some amdgpu as missing firmware).

sudo update-initramfs -k all -u 

Step 5: Installing Nvidia driver.

sudo apt install nvidia-driver nvidia-xconfig nvidia-kernel-common 

Step 6: Configure Nvidia driver to create new configuration /etc/X11/xorg.conf (make sure you delete old xorg.conf.)

sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo nvidia-xconfig

Step 7: Purge, reinstall nvidia drivers, and generate xconfig

sudo apt purge nivida* && sudo apt install nvidia-driver nvidia-xconfig && sudo nvidia-xconfig

Step 8: Update the grub configuration to pass nvidia-drm.modeset=1 as default command.

sudo nano /etc/default/grub
update the line GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet nvidia-drm.modeset=1"

Step 9: update the grub, remove xorg.conf (let sys generate xorg.conf at reboot), and reboot the system.

sudo update-grub && sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf && sudo reboot
