Question Kali linux donīt start (black screen)


Hi, I'm new here, I'm from Argentina so sorry for my english.
This is the problem:
I install kali linux (32bits) downloaded from the oficial page, and the instalation was ok. But when restart the pc, after the grub, the screen goes black for ever (the mouse pointer appears and disappears but doesn't move).
If I use the live version from USB, start ok.
In the drive, also is installed windows 8.1 and a recovery partition (with ubuntu, I think) both of them work and boot fine.
What can I do?
Here is the content of the xorg log: http://pastebin.com/KCkn1uW5

Note: I reinstall it and download the image like five times, even I try with 64bits version. Nothing change.

Thank you so much!

Do you have windows 8 as well as Ubuntu and Kali installed? Are you able to boot Ubuntu or none of the systems. Windows 8 pre-installed is most likely UEFI so did you install Kali UEFI? If you are not sure and can boot Ubuntu, go to the site below and follow the instructions for downloading the boot repair script to Ubuntu and running it. Select the option to Create BooInfo Summary and post a link to the output here. If you cannot boot Ubuntu and have another machine to use, download the boot repair iso from the site and burn it as an image to a CD and boot it and use the same option. This will give enough information so that someone can make a suggestion to resolve your problem.

Thank you for your answer.
I have no idea if I install a kali UEFI, I download the ISO form here: https://www.kali.org/downloads/
I can boot Ubuntu, but it's just a recovery partition (no an OS). I will use a USB with boot-repair and I will post the results.
Thanks.

Are you interested in learning computer forensics and penetration testing? If not, there is no reason to use Kali as explained at their site. It is not a good choice for a standard Desktop operating system. If you are interested in learning, you would be better off putting Kali on a flash drive to learn. How to put Kali on a flash drive is explained at the first link below. How to make it persistent is explained at the second link.

http://docs.kali.org/downloading/kal...ve-usb-install

http://docs.kali.org/downloading/kal...sb-persistence

You can download the boot repair script and put it on a CD if you know how to create a bootable CD. Not sure if windows default comes with that software but you need an optin to "burn as an image" on your burning software. Then boot and follow the instructions. Boot repair can repair most Linux systems and sometimes windows systems but there is no way we can help without further information which we can get from the boot repair script if you post the link to the output.

Likely probeis windows installed UEFI and Kali and/or Ubuntu not. I don't know what you mean by an Ubuntu 'recovery partition' as an Ubuntu install won't create one.

I'm interesting in learning computer forensics and penetration testing. I donīt want the live version.
Forget about the recovery partition, it's no ubuntu just a partition who can restore the windows original iso oem using linux, there is no problem with them so forget it.
I'm downloaded the boot repair, in a few minutes I will post the results.
Thank you, yancek!

Consider your original pastebin link in post#1
Code:
bash-4.4$ grep EE kali_linux_test.txt 
	(WW) warning, (EE) error, (NI) not implemented, (??) unknown.
[     8.587] (EE) Failed to load module "vesa" (module does not exist, 0)
[     8.592] (EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory
[     8.593] (EE) open /dev/dri/card0: No such file or directory
[     8.593] (EE) Screen 0 deleted because of no matching config section.
and that "vesa" is an Xorg server module.

So what should I do?
Thank you!
