Black screen with blinking underscore


(Niraj Nandish) #1

Briefly describe your issue below:
I downloaded the .ova file from the site and imported it into virtualbox. When I booted for first time, it boots into a black screen with blinking underscore in top left. No matter how many times i close and boot again the problem is still there.

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version, edition, and architecture)
Parrot Security 4.5.1

What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

Try at startup press ā€˜eā€™ in grub menu on parrot, then add acpi=off after quiet splash noautomount

press ctrl+x to boot

See if that works
