That's not good.

Do you still have the grub> prompt?
And, do you know what kernel Kali is using?
I know nothing. Im completely new to this distro and never seen grub like this before.

Once insmod was loaded OP should have tab complete

type in

linux /boot/vmlinuz5 and press tab to let it complete, then the rest of the command

patience, only got one arm and you are both up late
