Have you tried with a weekly image which will have a newer kernel? Do you have more of an error message? Unfortunately, the Kali team isn't large and we don't have every piece of hardware available in order to test, so we need users help when they are running into hardware issues.

And the firmware missing isn't always an issue, if you don't have those devices, then it not being there just means that it's not taking up space on your drive.
