Hi again Nico_Paul. This is not a UEFI machine so I can’t disable that. I test-installed Debian-based Kali with grub and it worked fine. I fell in love with Parrot Security x64 on this machine in the spring and only removed it in August to test other distros when the Intel Centrino Wireless-N 1000 quit working under Parrot on my main Dell laptop. So I am thinking maybe my next test should be to see if Parrot Security 4.1 x64 would reinstall, and if it does, just update it repeatedly.
Sure Nico_Paul. I will do that next pass.
Thanks Oddy. Good information. I only went to graphical because the regular boot didn’t work, but if you had an issue I’ll quit using that technique. Anything that increases my chances is welcomed!
Scroll past graphical to advanced and edit expert graphical install with ctrl e add an “i” to make /install
