I have Windows 8.1 64-bit installed on my PC. I have been trying to install Kali Linux using its ISO and Universal USB Installer (22.214.171.124) using a USB drive since the CD drive won't work.
The problem is that the Setup will either overwrite my Windows MBR and install Grub which I don't want; I want my Windows 8.1 Bootloader but with the Kali installation for boot up.
Is there any workaround for this ? I have tried BCDedit but it provided no help (maybe I was wrong somewhere, that's why). A good explanation with the answer would be really helpful.
NOTE : Before Kali I used BackTrack and Ubuntu with the "Install inside Windows" option that came within the installation procedure while running Setup.exe .
This time when I run Setup.exe (for Kali) the following error shows up :
If I would be able to install Kali inside Windows (like Ubuntu), that would be even better.
Any help is appreciated 🙂 . Thanks in advance !
EDIT : The reason for not removing the BCD and using GRUB is :
So that I can install Windows directly from my boot screen via my hardrive without having to do anything else (PS : I modified the BCD using BCDEdit)
