I am pretty new to Kali Linux (or Linux in general) so probably I won't understand ALL of the technical terms, but I will give my best.
As introduction in my problem, I wanted to create a Live CD with Kali Linux for my Laptop (exact information on version etc. will be given later, as well as the chronological order of the things I did).
After burning the ISO Image of Kali, I restarted my Laptop, and wanted to boot Kali Linux as a "Live Session", but everything I have seen was a Blackscreen, with no console, and no mouse pointer.
The Laptop did not react to anything, so I took out the disk, and started my PC new and booted with my primary operating system. After that I tried different things (which I will list too), but nothing of it helped me.
Laptop Model: ASUS R510LB-XX037H OS: Windows 8.1 64-Bit Architecture: 64-Bit Processor: Intel Core i74500U CPU @ 1.80 Ghz 2.40 Ghz RAM: 8.00 GB (7.89 Usable) Graphics: Intel HD Graphics, nVidia GEFORCE 740M
(If more Information is necessary I will give it)
Kali Linux 64 bit (because my System is 64x Based) Version: 2016.1 Boot Media: Disk (DVD-RW), 4.7 GB Storage
=> So basically the first thing here (Kali Linux 64 bit ISO)
The Things I did (in chronological order)
- Downloaded Linux Kali 64 bit 2016.1 ISO
- Saved on Desktop
- Took a brand new CD and put it in
- Right Clicked the ISO and burned the Image (With the Burning Option given by the System)
- Opened Charm Bar => Settings => Change PC Settings => Update/Recovery => Recovery => Advanced Start
- Selected the Option for opening the UEFI Settings
- Boot => Changed The Boot-Order, DVD will be booted first before main OS
- Restarted the PC
- Red Window saying "Secure Boot Violation" and some text, so I entered UEFI again and disabled "Secure Boot"
- Restarted PC again
- [after 20 min] manually restarted the PC (simple power-off)
- Burned ISO-Image again on fresh Disk
- Blackscreen again
- power-off, boot with Windows again
- and so I came here
I really don't know what I can do more, under Windows everything works fine (related to Hardware).
How can I resolve this issue?
