|0008140||Kali Linux||General Bug||public||2023-01-11 07:13||2023-04-28 15:05|
|Summary||0008140: Installation not working (Clean barbone install).|
When i try to install kali linux on a laptop, the installation freezes on "Detect Network Hardware".
I'm curious to know what Debian image you used. Can you share the link from where you downloaded it?
Can you try this Debian image and tell us if it works or not ?
The default Debian image doesn't have firmware and this one is an image with firmware that is closer to what we are using in Kali.
We would need more information about how the Kali installation fails. Once the installer is stuck, please type "CTRL+ALT+F4" to get to the fourth virtual terminal and take a screenshot of that terminal (and share it here).
You can also go to the second terminal with "CTRL+ALT+F2" and run some commands to interact with the installer environment. I would like to see the output of "ps" for example to know what processes are currently running (so that I can try to identify which one is getting stuck).
Finally, it would help to know what hardware there is in your laptop, so it would be useful if you could share the output of "lspci", "lsusb" and "lshw" on a working installation. (Please run "lshw" as root to have the maximum number of details)
I have the same problem. When installing the installation froze when recognizing the hardware.

A Debian bug report hints at a kernel issue with the mt7921e driver oopsing when the module is removed:
Possible mediatek hardware to reproduce the issue: https://www.aliexpress.us/item/1005003512734269.html?gatewayAdapt=4itemAdapt
That means if I remove the WLAN module, should the installation work? i will test it
You don't need to remove the wifi module itself, you can attempt add modprobe.blacklist=mt7921e to the installer's
how exactly do i do that? Unfortunately, I'm not such a professional that I do it like ganu or where I have to enter it. I tried to boot from the USB stick and then open the shell.
then I look for /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
but it doesn't exist or where do I have to enter it?
on the screen where you choose which installation type to choose, Install/Graphical Install and so forth, instead of just hitting enter, you would hit "e" and then on the line that starts with "linux" you would move the cursor down to that line, then move to the very end of the line with the right arrow key (or hit ctrl+e) and then type in "modprobe.blacklist=mt7921e" without the quotes.
so the line should end up ending something along the lines of "--- quiet modprobe.blacklist=mt7921e"
the problem is still there

SnowPlay, the screenshot is showing that you have some realtek card. Steev is giving you instructions for a known problem with a Mediatek card using the mt7921e driver, so it's to be expected that it doesn't help your case.
But your screenshot of the log screen shows zero error happening so it's not clear why and where it would be stuck. Can you try to share the output of the "ps" command that you would enter in the second terminal (CTRL+ALT+F2) while you are stuck? (As I requested in https://bugs.kali.org/view.php?id=8140#c17400)
Unfortunately, I can't give any exact details because the laptop freezes completely and it's not possible to switch to the other console.

The problem in the Mediatek driver should be fixed in the version of linux that we just uploaded to kali-experimental: 6.1.12-1kali2
Once built, we will move it to kali-rolling.
