  • Welcome!

    I'll get straight to the point.

    When I started Pop!_Planet, I launched it because I saw a need for a centralized community for Pop!_OS. To be frank, I never expected the level of popularity it has achieved. Over the last year, we have gone from under 50 users, to almost 400 users. That's awesome! However... it also comes with a downside. We are rapidly running out of disk space on our server, and the bandwidth costs go up every month.

    Pop!_Planet is not affiliated with System76 in any way, and is funded completely out of pocket. From day one, I said that I'd never use on-site ads (I hate them as much as you do), so the only monetization we get is through donations. Right now, the donations we receive don't even cover our overhead.

    I know that most users will ignore this message, and that's ok. However, if even a few of our users are willing and able to donate a few dollars to help offset our expenses, it would be greatly appreciated.

Question Solved existing popos 19.10 add dual boot kali


New member

I'm having some trouble figuring out how to install pentoo or kali on a machine with Pop OS 19.10 installed.
Kali or pentoo installers don't know about kernelstub and systemd-boot.
Can someone help me understand what I have to WRT the bootloader options?

Thanks in advance.

Both Kali and Pentoo are primarily intended to be live environments for penetration testing. Also, both are grub based, whereas Pop is usually UEFI based, so they're incompatible unless you install Pop with Grub. You would have to check your hardware to see if you can make it legacy boot only to force a Pop/Grub installation, otherwise the Pop installer will prefer a UEFI installation.
The main problem is the partition scheme. UEFI requires GPT and Grub needs a MBR.
