First boot no graphics nor root access

Briefly describe your issue below:

I just installed Parrot os on my laptop, no problem.
When i started Parrot for the first time, I just get the try (works pretty well). I tried startx, but the system froze.
I reboot in rescue mode to update, but I got “cannot start apparmor, etc…” and root is no longer accessible.

My laptop is a MSI GE72 6QD with a i7 6th gen and a GTX 960m

What version of Parrot are you running? (include version, edition, and architecture)
I installed the last version of Parrot os, ie. the 4.2.2

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

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)
I have a multiboot with Windows 10. Before installing Parrot I had a dual boot Windows10/Dabian buster Alfa 2.

If there are any similar issues or solutions, link to them below:

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:
[FAILED] Failed to start Load Apparmor profiles.
See ‘systemct1 status apparmor.service’ for details.
Cannot open access to console, the root account is locked.
See sulogin(8) man page for more details
Press Enter to continue.

Okay, I almost managed to fix it!

The lack of a graphical interface was due to watchdog errors (“CPU#3 stunt for 22s!”).

So I added “new.modset=0” at the end of the line beginning with “linux” in the grub script (type “e’”), and it works: I have a graphical interface and everything works.

The start is still a little slow, I’ll keep looking for what’s slowing down.

These commands will help you diagnose slow boot times.
