GRUB Rescue:Need help from someone with patience

I think I move more threads to the Kali sub-forum than actually start there. That number is likely similar for you, as I see you move quite a few threads to the sub-forum.

In other words, the average Kali user isn't able to figure out where to best post their questions.

If they can't figure that out on there own...

Well, I'll leave the rest of that unspoken. I try to encourage people but there are threads that I simply ignore for anything other than moderation needs.
as you have little or no knowledge of Linux then yes a VM/VB will be a lot safer and easier to re-install when it goes wrong, or another method would be using a USB pen-drive with persistence
You mean a live usb stick right? I did that as well,the problem is that there is no internet
 


try
ls (hd1,gpt1)
and then
ls (hd1,gpt2)
and then
ls (hd1,GPT3)
we are looking for an example output should be - lost+found var/ dev/ run/ etc/ tmp/ sys/ proc/ usr/ boot/ home/ lib lib64 and so on what we are looking for is boot/
 
try

and then

ls (hd1,gpt2) filesystem is ext2.
Im trying to understand why you write this:

This is what you wanted me to try? In that order?

Try

set root=(hd0,?)
set prefix=/boot/grub
insmod normal
normal
the ? in (hdo,?) will be the partition number counting from 1.
once booted back into it make sure the efi partition is mounted at /boot/efi and as root run grub-install

also are you dual booting with Windows?
since you have no /boot/grub/x86_64-efi/normal.mod file you most likely do not have the efi directory installed

I tried installing Kali Linux but had some problem,errors and now when i want to boot the laptop this is what happens. I tried looking for tutorials but its like Chinese
I dont have experience at all..
Please give me guidance so i can use the laptop and fix this problem.
Shut your computer off. Install bootable drive. Start new install. When you get to the partitioning, select manual and be sure to delete the data on each partition, delete the partitons and start over. Honestly, you'll drive yourself nuts trying to use grub rescue. The commands are all different and it most likely won't work.
 
Do yourself a favour, you obviously do not have the skill, and Linux experience to even be trying to install Kali, forget it, install an everyday distribution, learn how it works and the terminal codes, then come back to Kali in a couple of years.
 
I manage to solve it.
But not with grub rescue.
I deleted everything from the usb stick that i installed previously and then used the same image of kali and i tried again and it worked. Im not sure what the problem was but now the only problem is that i cant acces the internet via wifi and my laptop dont have ethernet connector so i need to buy and adaptor so i can have internet*(i hope it will work).
