Dual booting Debian Wheezy 7 and Kali Linux

Hello to all! Can anyone direct me to a tutorial covering how to set up a dual boot with Debian Wheezy 7 and Kali Linux. I loaded both distros and only Debian boots. Thank You.

When you say only Debian boots is Khali listed in the GRUB menu ?

if not then you may have to update GRUB so while in Debian type this command into the terminal

sudo update-grub
Then reboot and see if Khali is listed

Good luck

sudo for the user may not be enabled if it's a fresh install, so mighthave to su to root or open root terminal.
