Briefly describe your issue below:
I’m trying to install ParrotSec OS to my laptop but when it comes to “grub_bootloader configuring” it stops there and nothing happens after two hours.
I tried every other way to fix it but nothing changed.
Acer Aspire 1 A114-31
Intel Celeron 3350 1.1 ghz
Intel HD Graphics 500 Series
32GB eMMC Drive
What version of Parrot are you running? (include version, edition, and architecture)
Parrot Sec OS 4.3 x64
What method did you use to install Parrot? (Debian Standard / Debian GTK / parrot-experimental)
I tried all installing methods without parrot experimental
Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes / no)

Hi , what’s news about your issue ?
Try with 4.4 and clean install on a pre formated disk (separate the processes to be cleaner and complete). Continue without bootloader if fails and see if that works
I tried without boot loader but it gave me a debootstrap error.It says “Warning: file:///cdrom/dists/parrot/main/binary-amd64/Packages.gz was corrupt.”
I have cleaned the disk before.
Did you change your bios settings as well? It needs to be an ISO file that you write your boot USB with using Balena Etcher. Are you doing all this plus everything set out Here after reading the all of the installation and pre installation documents? And of course most importantly can your hardware support this version of parrot with enough space?
Yes I did the things need to do in bios menu. The computer working with the windows 10 and I think it’s enough to open parrot os. I writed the ISO file with balena Etcher too.
It should be .iso tho not .gz
Guys thanks spending time for me. I solved the problem. All I need to do is reinstall the win10 and wait for updates. And there is one bios update for computer. I don’t know what it changed but when I tried install the Parrot OS it turned out good and now I’m using the Parrot OS.
always keep your system including BIOS updated, it makes a big difference and for example the Fonseca data breach/ panama paper dump (not that i didnt think it was warranted or deserved) could have never happened if they had simply kept up to date with their updates. Updating is one of the core beliefs and promises of Parrot that I respect and adore the most.
