I’m having a problem in dual boot setting on my Windows 10 machine with Kali Linux. I used this official Kali Linux guide to set things up, “Dual Boot Kali with Windows.”

My system is:

First I created a 150GB partition in Windows disk management. Then I followed the steps as followed. Once the installation finished, I rebooted into Windows. I have checked BIOS and it uses the Windows Boot Manager, so I booted off the hard drive in the F12 menu.

I got to the GRUB boot loader, and could load up Kali, but cannot for Windows. If I chose to boot with the Windows Boot Manager, it would boot into Windows 10. Can somebody help me with this?

And another problem, my BIOS keeps freezing; I will see if I can fix this later.

I would like to have a simple dual boot menu with Kali Linux and Windows, right from the start.

  • So GRUB has no Windows option and Windows Boot Manager has no Kali Linux option? – JohnDoe Sep 21 '15 at 4:17
  • If you want both to appear on the Windows Boot Manager, then I would recommend EasyBCD, although I am not completely sure it is compatible with Windows 10. – JohnDoe Sep 21 '15 at 4:19
  • @JohnDoe the grub loader has a linux option, and windows option. Whenever I try to windows option(it appears as windowns 8) it gives me an error about not being able to load up or something... – Wup123 Sep 21 '15 at 4:32
  • @JohnDoe i may be able to fix the bios problem with removing the battery and putting it back in, but I need to concentrate on getting kali linux and windows in a menu first, then have the windows boot manager 2nd priority... – Wup123 Sep 21 '15 at 4:34
