repeat the process and when you get to the desktop and open terminal

sudo update-grub

followed by

sudo grub-install /dev/sda

and reboot

ok we are close

i have to leave for my evening, back around same time as before, in 13 - 14 hours

if you have a spare usb stick, go into kali, disable the screensavers and powersavers under settings manager, download and burn an iso for another distro you fancy, make sure it is a live version, NOT an installer

later

Actually, anyone know someone who can help permanently fix it?
Like a developer or the founder or something?

Here's what I do-

When I find that the path I choose is continually blocked, I try another path.
Maybe Parrot Linux which is supposed to have more tools than Kali Linux might be a more logical choice / path.

Just a suggestion.
