As I too am on Kali64-amd ( finally got it to dual boot :) ), I understand the struggle. However, throughout my endeavor to solve the problem, I was all alone thus resulting in me learning a lot about Linux. Consider trying to Google your way through this one. Here're a few starter links:


Good sir, thank you for your answer - I appreciate an answer that starts with a journey. I'm sure there will be some who disagree. It dawned on me today, that to sit online and seek out ways to hack, is counter productive. Instead, sit and search to learn online about all things (in this case Linux). Then hacking, is but an easy afterthought.... your answer makes me smile.
