Kali Linux usb install on UEIF with Win 8.1


Ok so I'm trying to install Kali on my computer with the USB install and I have read that anthing after version 1.0.8 should be UEIF compatible. I used Rufus to create the bootable usb with Kali's ISO. When i boot from the usb i get the GRUB loader but no matter if i chose the live or the install it freezes/crashes and get errors like:

no caching mode page found

since the usb is not persistent how can i view or capture the error messages to help me figure out what the problem is?

Also should i just try burning it to disk to see if i get different results? Haven't done it yet because i don't have any DVD's laying around.

Kali recommend using dd to burn the image to a USB stick:
Code:
 dd if=kali.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=512k
http://docs.kali.org/installation/ka...d-disk-install
http://docs.kali.org/installation/ka...ve-usb-install

I would use a 4k block size & sync afterwards to flush the buffers, but those Kali devs know what they're doing...

UEIF compatible yes
BUT
Microsoft really is not using UEIF but there own version of it

you will NEED to disable secureboot first BEFORE running Kali
then RENABLE "secureboot" to run windows

Actually, Windows runs just fine with Secure Boot disabled (apart from the pre-boot malware, but you get that with GNU/Linux as well)
