    I have the same problem. Fresh install of Kali 2018.2, ran all updates, followed https://kb.parallels.com/en/123968, rebooted, and would not start up but throws errors in what seems an infinityloop.

    even update 13.3.2-43368 does not fix this error.
    Same error as 0xDEADBEEF

    So I guess there is still the only fix of downgrading xorg? No word from parallels?

    systemd strikes again! pfft. If you un-install Parallel tools from kali by running the same installer you can get back to working order but without the VM extensions. Not a fix but at least you can get back in to get scripts etc..

    Having the same issue - removed the Parallels tools so that I could regain functionality.

    Hi everyone, I have the same issue and also a question: How do you remove the Paralleles Tools when you cannot boot on your Kali system ?

    Thanks for your help

    [edit] I did it by booting in recovery mode, sorry for the question.

    @Parallel guys: any idea when this is going to be fixed ?
    Thanks

    Found a solution without long headache:
    From: https://forum.parallels.com/threads...3-3-1-43365-fixes-nothing.344639/#post-842979
    use the following bash commands:
    Code:
    mkidr /tmp
    cd /tmp
    wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/x/xorg-server/xserver-common_1.19.2-1+deb9u2_all.deb
    wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/x/xorg-server/xserver-xorg-core_1.19.2-1+deb9u2_amd64.deb
    wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/x/xorg-server/xwayland_1.19.2-1+deb9u2_amd64.deb
    wget http://ftp.debian.org/debian/pool/main/x/xserver-xorg-video-vesa/xserver-xorg-video-vesa_2.3.4-1+b2_amd64.deb
    dpkg --force-all -i *.deb
    apt-mark hold xserver-common xserver-xorg-core xwayland xserver-xorg-video-vesa
    apt-get --fix-broken install
    But also a note for the Parallels Team, please fix your x-org problems. Thank You.
