• We had to restore from a backup today after a failed software update. Backup was from 0000 EDT and restored it at 0800 EDT so we lost about 8hrs. Today is 07/20/2024. More info here.

Please help me asap | Kali Gnu Grub Bootloader v2.02



I fully removed windows.
The only way i coukd get windows back is from getting it on usb
You need the key for that.
Most times there is a sticker on the bottom of the laptop with the key on it.

Good luck-:)
 
No its not needed.
Windows keeps motherboard info in their servers.
Once i get windows, i wont need a key as long as i pick the version i had

Ok, good-
No worries mate:-
 
solution depends on your version and you should change some numbers
suggested fix :
you should know which partition root directory is located in , so do ls and see what partitoons you have then do ls(hd0,$number) until you find your root
after this you should find your vmlinuz and initrd version , if luckily yours is the latest you can search it
here is how it worked for me
grub> set root=(hd0,6)
grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz-5.5.0-kali2-amd64 root=/dev/sda6
grub> initrd /boot/initrd.img-5.5.0-kali2-amd64
grub> boot
here is how it worked for our friend in pervious pages

grub> set root=(hd0,2)
grub> linux /boot/vmlinuz-5.4.0-kali4-amd64 root=/dev/sda2
grub> initrd /boot/initrd.img-5.4.0-kali4-amd64
grub> boot

good luck
 
I'm currently having the same troubles. However, if I run the "linux" command, I get "
error: symbol 'grub_efi_secure_boot' not found.
"
 
This thread is like 18 months old.

It may be worth starting your own thread (in the Kali sub-forum, assuming that's what you're using).
 
Hello!
You don't know me, but i need some help.
I am a new linux user who knows quite a bit about it
I have knowledge of BIOS and Installing Distros.
Ive tried many distros before, from linux mint, to elementary os.
This time, i tried using kali linux. I installed it using the 64 bit installer and when done, It booted into gnu grub version 2.02.

Ive never seen this screen before and do not know how to get out.
Im using an Acer Computer and i have no other computers so i cant just burn another distro to boot up on my pc.

Im in quite the pickle and need help fast.
If you can help me it would be appreciated.

Thanks!
Also, i haven't been able to use my pc for a week now because of this
Its a acer laptop
So you're in grub rescue?
