OBJECTIVE: To boot Parrot-security-4.11.3_amd64 installed on USB flash memory with GPT-UEFI format.
I am using an ASUS GX701LWS (Zephyrus S17) notebook with Windows 11 Pro installed. Secure boot is disabled.
The Parrot Linux iso was burned to a suitable USB flash memory and I used that to install Parrot onto a second USB flash memory. The native Calamares installer was used for the installation which, of course, did not create an ESP boot partition.
The Windows 11 boot manager being what it is does not recognize the boot partition created by Calamares. The OS will boot, however, if I bypass the Windows boot manager and Grub by using rEFInd in their stead. I tried reformatting the boot partition to EFI and added the appropriate flags, but then Calamares crashes and will not install Grub.
NOTE: I am not asking for dual boot nor secure booting instructions. The Windows boot manager recognizes Parrot on the USB, but it will not boot from whatever Calamares puts in there.
Is it possible to install Parrot-secure with an EFI version of Grub?
