What exactly do you see on your screen? What video card do you have?

If you are using an NVidia card, see 0003872 for a possible work-around.

Hello rhertzog,

i am really sure, that "tyuiop" get the screen like in "nopossiblelogin.jpg" which I got several times too :P

Just over a usual system install. Then I have only

apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

And in addition on the second try: I have read the Kali Linux Documentation for Nvidia drivers like here: http://docs.kali.org/general-use/install-nvidia-drivers-on-kali-linux

The actual dist-upgrade, installs the linux-headers directly and the third instruction is in this case senseless:

"apt-get install -y linux-headers-$(uname -r)"

because $(uname -r) is after the complete dist-upgrade (in that moment) "4.6.0-kali1-amd64" when the user attempts to enter it...

But there is another interesting thing too, that I could not understand till now.

I updated grub etc. and then rebooted..

And I see at the extended boot option menu (I don't know the exact conception of that at the moment *shame*

Two different linux-kernel versions? The 4.6 and the 4.9? But why?

OK rhertzog,

i bypassed the bug like follows:

1. I downloaded a weekly build, the kali-linux-2017-W08-amd64.iso.
2. Installed it as usual(the ACPI errors were still there, even at the installation, but it runs)
3. directly executed commands: "apt-get update && apt-get upgrade && apt-get dist-upgrade

The Installation was completely successful and so on. Only the ACPI errors are a little bit annoying.

But the most important thing: I looked for new BIOS updates for my system, but the latest is already installed and I have often googled for a solution, with no success.

My Laptop is a HP Envy dv7 7300SG.

I will attach some screenshots from my lshw output.
