Well, the Matebook X Pro didn’t fair well to a dual boot with Kali and Windows. I think it had something to do with the weird 3000×2000 resolution and the fact that grub couldn’t understand that to boot into an installer for Kali. I tried working on different grub commands, but eh, I did so much that I couldn’t get the machine to boot back into the original install.
So I took it back to the store and decided VM only – no dual booting. I mean, OSCP is set up to work within a VM, all my practice books are with VMs. So VM it is – and I need a good supported VM app, so Windows with VMWare Workstation was the way to go. I also wanted a laptop that will last, so I put up the extra cash for the new Surface Laptop 2. I am happy so far. I do wish it has a USB-C as the MXP did, but it wasn’t a deal breaker. Back to studying!
