I'm at a loss because most wins 8 machines use UEFI instead of normal bios.
Have you disabled Secure Boot?

Honestly I do not know.Now I cannot do anything on my laptop.As soon as I switch it on, I am presented with the screen that says Recovery a required device cant be connected or cant be accessed. Error code 0x000000e.So I cannot even check or do anything.

Great that you got it fixed, uefi & Secure Boot are tricky.
Not a lot of us have experience with it. I'm 1 of those people.
How much experience do you have with linux?
If very new you may want to play with linux in VirtualBox for a while.

Also kali linux while it looks great is not a real newbie distro. Gnome3 defaults are set to run Gnome in fallback-mode & if you set it to boot normally your Kali Tools Menu will be hidden.
Good luck with the project.

Yes I am a newbie in Linux but not a complete newbie.I used linux to learn c++ and java.The reason I went fully to windows was that I needed to learn c#, no visual studio in Linux.But, I am fascinated by kali linux.Do you have any suggestions about a newbie like me who wants to learn kali?

Okay, seems like someone is praying very hard that I shouldn't have kali. I downloaded virtual box.I used this tutorial http://kanishkashowto.com/2013/09/03...by-step-guide/to make sure of everything this time.To my surprise, after I select the ISO file, and click start.I am presented with a blank screen.At first I thought it is still loading, but the menu option does not appear.

Should I download a new kali iso file?

Currently I am trying to install kali-linux-1.0.6-amd64.

Have you enable VT-x in bios?
