I recently installed Kali Linux on my PC, making it dual booting with Windows 10. I have a 500GB m.2 Samsung 980 Pro SSD where I've installed Windows 10 and I have another 500GB Samsung EVO 860 SSD where I've installed Kali Linux. I've installed Grub so when I turn on my computer, I have the option to pick Windows 10 or Kali.
If I pick Kali, I'm getting the following error before the login screen:
I'm able to login to Kali, however, if the above error shows, Kali is not able to detect my wifi adapter (Intel Wi-Fi 6 AX200).
HOWEVER, If I first boot into Windows 10, restart the PC, then boot into Kali, I get the following different set of errors, and wifi connects automatically and everything works.
I've tried this many times and the pattern is: if I want wifi to work in Kali, I'll need to boot into windows first then kali. Otherwise, if I boot straight into Kali, wifi adapter will not be found and wifi will not work.
How do I fix this wifi issue?
