New Linux user here have been using the OS for a little over a week now and im loving it. I’m having an issue installing the nvidia drivers, it hangs on the legacy check for gpus. Any idea how i go about booting with command acpi=off?

At startup press ‘e’ in grub menu on parrot, then add acpi=off after quiet splash noautomount

To make this permanent, you need to edit the grub file
sudo nano /etc/default/grub

Then edit the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX line, so after edit it should look like this:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="quiet splash noautomount acpi=off"
then update grub:
sudo update-grub

Sorry for the late reply,

Thanks! That did it and I was able to install my nvidia drivers! Appreciate the help.

Sorry i have an issue on parrot 4.10 not shutting down even if i press power button only restarts again instead of shutting down
