USB problem during installation

Hi all,

At this point I’ve been trying to install Parrot Home for about 48 hours without success on my Lenovo IdeaPad S540. I suspect it’s not mounting the USB correctly (I’ve already tried the unplug - replug trick mentioned everywhere and I’ve extensively looked through the forums, the closest answer I could find was posted on superuser, I’ve linked it down below).

I’ve turned off secure boot and activated legacy support, however when I get to the grub menu I can neither boot into live mode nor install.

Who can help me resolve this? I’ve been using Parrot as VM for a while and would love to make it my main OS.

What version of Parrot are you running? 4.7 KDE Home

What method did you use to install Parrot? Debian Standard & Debian GTK

Configured to multiboot with other systems? (yes)

I found 1 other user that has a similar issue, which can be found here.

If there are any error messages or relevant logs, post them below:

As seen on this screenshot I suspect it’s trying to load from my SSD rather than USB.

What method did you use to create the USB? (command/program)

Make sure you have your system BIOS updated and that the NVMe controller is set to AHCI mode and not something like RAID is enabled.
