Sorry to say,
firstly, if it is the latest notebook, then there may be components that Linux drivers are as yet not available.
Secondly, Kali is NOT for beginners, the distribution is so constructed that you need to be an experienced Linux user and be fully conversant with the terminal and the main commands to enable you to install it
this from the Kali pages [if you have not already seen it.
""
As the distribution’s developers, you might expect us to recommend that everyone should be using Kali Linux. The fact of the matter is, however, that Kali is a Linux distribution specifically geared towards professional penetration testers and security specialists, and given its unique nature, it is NOT a recommended distribution if you’re unfamiliar with Linux or are looking for a general-purpose Linux desktop distribution for development, web design, gaming, etc.

Even for experienced Linux users, Kali can pose some challenges. Although Kali is an open source project, it’s not a wide-open source project, for reasons of security. The development team is small and trusted, packages in the repositories are signed both by the individual committer and the team, and - importantly - the set of upstream repositories from which updates and new packages are drawn is very small. Adding repositories to your software sources which have not been tested by the Kali Linux development team is a good way to cause problems on your system.""

You can install any Linux that will work on your machine, and once you are familiar with how it works and the terminal commands, you can install the Pen-testing tools to that distribution or try again to install Kali, there are 4 or 5 other distributions designed for professional pentesters, some are far easier to install, but If you are a beginner do not expect to get any support from their own sites as you are expected to have a fair amount of knowledge first

I understand.
Is there still ANY way to shutdown this nonsense, so i can install Linux Mint?
Or is my only way out to wait until the battery dies?
Thank a lot for your answer.

Try press and hold the on button down for 60 seconds
First what is the full make and model number of the netbook, so we can check the specifications
second, which OS did it come with,
third, what did you use to burn the ISO to the pen drive

Just hold down the power button for about 10-15 seconds and the laptop will power off.
