|0001704||Kali Linux||General Bug||public||2014-09-01 12:12||2020-12-01 10:48|
|Fixed in Version||1.1.0|
|Summary||0001704: Grub failed to install on /target/|
Attempting to install Kali Linux on an EFI machine without an Internet connection causes the Grub install to fail in the last stages.
The install will progress up until the grub install phase and then present the error 'Grub failed to install on /target/'. As the grub will not install, this is a fatal error.
|Steps To Reproduce|
Install Kali 1.0.9 (or 1.0.8) in an EFI based mode without an internet connection.
Install fails 100% of the time at the install grub phase with the grub-efi-amd64 file unable to be found.
I retrieved the log files from the installer to an external USB. The error is not a fail to install error but the installer can not find the grub-efi-amd64 files. Important log dump below.
I was able to bypass the error by creating a custom Kali ISO. Following the steps here: http://docs.kali.org/downloading/live-build-a-custom-kali-iso
Within the custom ISO, I edited live-build-config/config/package-lists/kali.list.chroot and added the following packages to the end of the file
After I added this files, I built to ISO and installed Kali. No more grub failed to install error as the installer was able to find grub-efi-amd64
