With the installation media unplugged, if you boot your computer does it successfully boot Kali?

As your bios MUST boot before any operating system can be booted, it must still be intact.

... You're confusing me here. The USB has the Kali installation media on it, correct? And as long as the USB is plugged in, it boots to Kali, but with the USB unplugged, it says no operating system? If that's the case, it seems it did not (completely) install Kali.

I tried kali
and it hosed my sd card on the first boot attempt
wiped the data on it and half way installed syslinux boot loader
there was some kind of systemd crash it tried to make the
sd card the default boot device when I did get in to the
bios the internal HDD wasn't even a boot option until I pulled the usb and the sd card and reran the BIOS setup (cold reboot)

from now on I'm going to stay as far as I can get from systemd
I've seen reports of systemd erasing the BIOSs and bricking the motherboard
so
ya may need a new mother board
I hope I'm wrong
best of luck

It's a nice little portable device.
