This from the Kali documentation [what this means is you have to be linux competent to install and use Kali]

Is Kali Linux Right For You?


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.

This is just a guess at what might be happening. It sounds like the defaults in the BIOS are preventing a boot of linux, in this case Kali. Some BIOS's default to choose to boot MS operating systems, but have an option somewhere in their menus to select an alternative operating system which may be called "legacy" or "UNIX" or "other" or some other term. For booting linux in such BIOS's one needs to select one of those alternatives, hence using the BIOS's defaults is unlikely to work. This may or may not be the issue.

If Mr. Robot can't figure out this boot problem himself, then Mr. Robot shouldn't be using Kali. Since professional security researchers or those who want to be are able to research the problem(s) themselves. Start with Linux Mint or Ubuntu.
