I just bought Asus eeebook x205ta and I want to put Kali Linux on it. I have Kali Linux 2.0 ISO and extracted it using universal bootloader and tried to boot it from bios. It won't boot to Linux and continues to boot to Windows 10. I checked with my other laptop hp246, it booted fine without any issues. I also tried creating /EFI/BOOT and putting some files that I searched through google but I'm still not getting it to boot to Linux.

  • Is secure boot off? – f3rn0s Aug 11 '16 at 23:43
  • yes , the first thing I've done that. – Justin BJ Aug 15 '16 at 3:32

I just installed Kali on my x205ta, granted with a few issues I had to research, but it worked. Even though it's a x64 proc, the EFI runs x86, which could be an issue if you haven't checked that out. I used Linux Live, and set up boot-usb. Hope that helps a little. It's not detecting my eth card so I will be looking into that after I get the system up and running.
