#StackBounty: #linux #boot #mac #multi-boot #kali-linux Trouble Installing a Kali Linux Dual boot

Bounty: 50

I have a mid 2015 MacBookPro with retina display and am trying to set up a Kali linux dual boot. I currently have a dual boot with arch linux, set up through rEFIind (some beta version I think).

I created a USB bootable, following Kali’s documentation and tried to install with it, but could not. I am able to run it perfectly fine on a windows machine I was testing with, but when I try to load it on Mac it hangs on a blue screen. It gives the same image shown in this question when selecting legacy boot. It also gives an option for a live boot and hangs on a screen giving a message about “booting” os with load options “”.

I am wondering if anyone has ever experienced anything similar? Should I add boot options? If so, how should I do that? Could it be a graphical issue, can I change the resolution somehow?

Thanks for any advice.

Edit:

I have included some pictures of the relevant screens.

These are the available drives to boot from. I use rEFInd instead of booting to USB directly because that always seems to fail

This is the drive I select to boot from through rEFInd, it lives on the USB and is live boot’s efi

This is the screen I get 95% of the time, however I sometimes get the next screen I have a picture of

This is the boot menu that I get probably 5% of the time attempting to launch. It is a small, not properly rendered version of the menu that usually freezes after that screen
