Installation failure Laptop



Hello everybody,

after 3 days of trying I’ve finally reached my breaking point,
so lets get to the point:

I can’t install parrot security version on my laptop.

  • Version : latest (4.4)

So I’ve tried both CD-ROM installation and usb here are the results:


*Boots fine reaches the step where it “Detects and Mounts” and It fails.I’ve tried mounting myself with the mount command but even after creating the cdrom folder myself and placing everything inside nothing happened.

*Used rufus,etcher and 2 different usb sticks.


*Everything goes fine untill the “Installing the System” step where it fails at 3%.

Please help :frowning:

For usb use etcher for making bootable

Have you perfectly selected partition for installing
My mean if you dual booting need to select primary partition by wipe and select most free space auto guided partition


Tried etcher but same result,

not trying to dual boot just want to install it.

I am now downloading parrotsec 4.3 incase the 4.4 is corrupt.


If you’re not duel booting, is the disk clean? Several Linux distros struggle to install properly if the disk hasn’t been wiped. Please fill out the support form and add the hardware you’re attempting to install on.

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

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

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

what did you change in your BIOS settings? was there an update from your manufacturer? do you understand what needs done to allow a UEFI bootable configuration with something like this (did you read the docuentation on Parrot OS UEFI help and Debian Handbook ?) It can be confusing due to the vast differences found between UEFI/BIOS manufacturers, some are better than others
