[Solution] – Authentication Problem During Kali Linux Start Up

Sometimes after successful installation of Kali Linux many users fails to login into Kali first time. The problem they are facing is authentication.

You must also experienced same problem, even after entering the correct Username & Password (one that provided during installation), you fails to login into Kali Linux. Don’t worry we have a solution for you.

When Kali Linux ask you to enter Username for first time, do not enter the Username you given during installation. Instead of that just type “root” in username field and then enter Password that you set during installation. Yes this will solve your problem.

[Solution] – Missing GRUB in Kali Linux

Some of our readers are reporting a problem, that after installing Kali linux they are unable to boot into Windows. This is because of missing GRUB loader. So to solve this problem you have to reinstall GRUB menu so that it can detect Windows. To do so boot into Kali and open terminal and type following commands :

os-prober
update-grub

Solution Source : Kali Forums

[Solution] – After Installing Kali, PC Directly Boots to Windows

Many readers are reporting that even though after successfully installing Kali, every time PC boots automatically to Windows without showing GRUB. This happens due to failed GRUB installation happens because of Bootable flag option is off. GRUB installs successfully only when this option is on.See step 17 you can find bootable flag option.

So this is one of the possible solution for that problem :

  • First boot with your Kali USB
  • Select “Live” option to boot into Kali Live mode.
  • Open Terminal window.
# fdisk -l          (First we have to find out the partition Kali is installed on (: /dev/sda1, /dev/sda2, etc) )
# mount /dev/sda1 /mnt           (Mount your kali partition)
# mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev          (You will need to mount the /dev directory into mnt)
# chroot /mnt           (change the root to the mounted partition to be able to run the command from the mounted partition)
# grub-install --recheck /dev/sda           (install grub in the HDD sda, not sda1, sda2, etc.., just sda.
  • Now reboot the system, you will see your boot-menu showing Window and Kali Linux both simultaneously.
  • Now, please issue these 2 commands, if they fail, do not worry, you will have to do it after reboot.. This will make Windows to show up in the grub menu.
    # os-prober           (looks for partitions in the HDD and register them in the os-prober file.
    # update-grub           (Takes some templates, including the os-prober file and writes them in the menu)
    
  • That is all, once done, reboot..You should see the grub menu. If you do not see the Windows option in the menu, don’t worry, just enter Kali, open up a terminal and run the 2 commands I posted above.
  • Reboot again, you should see the Kali and Windows option in GRUB menu

Let us know above mentioned step resolved your issue. If not try this solution.

            Actually, changing my settings from the bios did the trick. I turned off the secure boot feature and changed the EUFI mode to something like SCLC (i can’t remember the actual name, but it was the only other option available). I GOT LINUX AND AM READY TO START MY CAREER AS A PEN TESTER

      Hi, This is the steps i took after re-imaging my computer about 10 times lol.
      -Ensure you have secure boot OFF and Legacy boot ON, along with UEFI as your primary boot
      – download the kali ISO to your windows 10 desktop.
      – insert your USB, find it in the system folder and format it to NTFS (full format)
      – Use Power ISO to convert your Kali ISO to a RAW IMAGE on your USB. Once complete set usb aside.
      TRICKY PART
      – Go to your system settings. Find DEVICE MANAGER.
      – Click EVERY DROP DOWN MENU and go line by line to UPDATE DEVICE DRIVER (use the search online feature) Do this for every single item in your DEVICE MANAGER PAGE and do not restart until you have completed each one. (reason for this is, i had problems with my UEFI firmware reading my usb. So im not necessarily sure that this was the problem or if it was the format of my usb when it was FAT32)
      – Once you have done that restart your computer and let windows load
      – Now SHUT DOWN YOUR COMPUTER
      – Insert your KALI USB
      – Click on F12 to enter the boot menu. (you should see UEFI and LEGACY)
      -Click on LEGACY USB and complete the KALI installation (NOTE: You should create a partion for Kali in WINDOWS through the Disk Management. Format it to NTFS but leave it empty so you can identify it during the kali installation. When you arrive to the partion screen in kali do a manual partion. Find the space your created then delete it. You should then see FREE SPACE and that were you will install Kali….AND BE SURE TO INSTALL THE GRUB BOOT LOADER TO YOUR HARD DRIVE NOT YOUR USB!!!!!!!!

      -Once installation is complete you will be able to login into kali from the F!2 key
      – Click on LEGACY HARD DRIVE and Kalii will load!!!!!

    Hello guys.
    I have 1 problem. I wanted to create bootable USB linux kali device. When i would have USB in my PC i could run linux by going in boot menu and select USB. So i downloaded linux kalix64.iso and wrote it with Win32 Disk Imager on 32GB USB. I restarted pc and i came in Bott menu. There i selected USB boot. I installed Linux from USB. After installing it i wanted to go back on Windows 10. I turned off PC and unpluged USB. Then i turned on pc and i got this message:
    “error: no such device: d75a65fc-e4f5-4b25-9cb4-a82efc6bbb8f.
    Entering rescue mode…
    grub rescue> ”
    Then i turned off my pc and turned it on with USB in it. So it took me to GNU GRUB there i could chose between Linux Kali and Windows 8 (loader) (na/dev/sda1). So now i cant go in any OS without USB in my PC.
    Plz help me.
    Thank you for answer and sorry for my bad English

      Make sure that your BIOS can boot in legacy mode if your using a uefi BIOS.

      –Missing Firmware Problem–

      It is most likely in the firmware-realtek package.

      Here is the detail

      Is it listed if you do

      dpkg –get-selections *firmware*

      If not, you can apt-get install firmware-realtek

    I have dual booted my windows 10 with kali linux by these steps. It is installed perfactly. But when i try to connect wifi networks it shows “searching networks” and this process goes on for long and at last shows no network available though there are many wifi networks available.It shows wifi drivers properly in airmon-ng command.So what should I do to connect wifi networks available.

    Nice article !! I am thinking to create a windows 10 – kali dual boot and to overide my ubuntu partition! I have some quenstions! First of all my bios is legancy and not UEFI should i change something? Finally i have about 200gb partition which has the ubuntu , can i just delete it and use the free space of this partition in the step of the manual installation?Should i care something else? Thanks!!

    • comment-avatar

      First delete your Ubuntu partition then you have to uninstall GRUB bootloader.After that you can start installing Windows 10 and Kali respectively

    I tried to install Kali after windows 10 yesterday and did all the steps as above, but after the guided partions step and done setting up the partition, (the swap partition failed to create) error occured and I didn’t know what to do, so I chose abort the installation and now I can’t boot into Windows as the (No operating system found) error is occuring. I didn’t format any partitions. Please help me recover my Windows without formatting it.

      If you have the installation disc, boot from it.
      Click ‘Repair your computer’
      Then first try to fix the problem by clicking the option ” Startup Repair ”
      If startup repair didn’t fix it,then try “command prompt”
      At the command prompt, issue the following commands, pressing Enter after each one:
      bootrec /fixmbr
      bootrec /fixboot
      bootrec /rebuildbcd
      exit

    I wish I had seen this article before I started doing this dual-boot setup on my PC. My mistake was not making the space on my partition first through Windows Disk Manager. I created the partitions in Kali after I had successfully booted it from my usb drive using the gparted software. Now when ever I try to boot into windows from GRUB it says that windows needs to be recoverd. Unfortunately, my laptop doesn’t have a disc drive. Any help is greatly appreciated on this issue. I tried to install boot-repair with no avail. I also tried easybcd and it says there’s an error in the archives.

    I successfully dual boot my kali and win10. but it seems my kali become more “admin like” compared to my windows 10. im experiencing 2 condition. my laptop wont turn off when i shutdown using win10 so i have to restart and boot to kali then shut down from there. another thing is my laptop volume when booting win10 seems to depend on the volume level in my kali. My kali’s default volume level for every restart is almost mute that’s why when booting win10, i always boot first to kali to adjust the volume then restart to use the win10. hoping for a solution. thanks to you.

    @TechLog360 – Okay, I have Windows 10 pro. I followed directions to the “T” without fail and no problem. Rebooted machine and boots directly into Windows 10. Went into Bios and Secure Boot was already disabled. Went into the Boot Sequence and only 2 options was Windows 10 Loader and my Internal HDD . . . “Debian” or anything else was not listed.

    Suggestions? When I go into the Disk Mng. within Windows, I can see my 15gigs partitioned and says Healthy Partition and that is what I chose to install too as per your instructions.

      Edit: I have tried many solutions in the recovery mode terminal such as Startx, updating and upgrading gdm3, I tried the X command, the fsck command, and probably more, and now I looked at my disk management and it looks like the partition I created for kali had split into two parts one is 8.76 GB and one is 5.89 GB which almost adds up to 15 GB which is the size I made the Kali partition.. could that be the problem? Thanks!

      Yes you can do network config with wifi
      And in BIOS disable secure boot and enable legacy boot.And also disable fast boot.If you have any doubt you can chat with us during installation through our facebook page.

        • comment-avatar

          Usually Kali will automatically detect your network card and also GRUB will show every time during start up.So you can choose which OS you like to boot into through GRUB

    If you continue to install Debian in UEFI mode, it might be difficult to reboot the machine into any BIOS mode operating systems later.
    If you wish to install in UEFI mode and don’t care about keeping the ability to boot one of existing systems, you have the option to force that here.
    If you wish yo keep the option to boot an existing operating system, you should choose NOT to firce UEFI installation here.

    OK so i read through all the comments in this post and i don’t believe my question has been asked…I have an Asus K55n laptop with both an SSD (loaded with Windows10) and an HDD (loaded with Kali Linux). I installed kali after first removing the SSD in order to ensure there were no problems. After installing it, i put the SSD back in and did the whole update-grub thing and this is my problem……upon boot, i do have the choice to select Kali/Windows 10 but when i choose Windows 10 i get an error message……the only way around this I’ve found is that I boot into Kali, do a shutdown,then upon starting back up, mashing the delete key to get to bios upon which my boot order only shows the SSD (Windows10) so i save and restarted and that’s when I choose Windows again and THIS time it actually loads Windows. I’ve tried updating Grub but this problem keeps repeating and I’m unsure how to get Windows10 to load when I select it the first time in GRUB…..does this make sense? it’s a really odd problem that I’d love to get an answer to

    I did all the steps more times, but it won’t work with my HP laptop. I tried the solution on the end of the article, but kali say “device node not found” and the boot never shows up. Can you help me? I have tried EasyBCD but it says that my pc is in EFI mode. Legacy support is enabled and fast boot is disabled. Help me if you can. Thanks

    Running Kali would be so much easier, but mostly peoples goes with the Ubuntu distribution due to it’s GUI. Ubuntu distribution has a much better GUI (Graphical User Interface) then Kali and easy to use. Where-ever Kali is little bit difficult for users who recently migrate into Linux from window OS.

    so according to my personal experience firstly window users use ubuntu then migrate to kali…..
