    After installing Parallels Toolkit to a Kali VM I get this screen upon reboot

    I have been able to reproduce this twice on my personal machine now. Here are the steps.
    1. I am using the Kail 64bit ISO from https://www.kali.org/downloads/ in Debian Linux VM
    2. Once the VM is installed I do the following terminal commands
    • sudo apt-get update
    • sudo apt-get upgrade -y
    • sudo apt-get dist-upgrade -y
    • restart
    3. Then I try to install the toolkit by mounting the cdrom from the nav bar and then
    • umount /media/cdrom
    • mount -o exec /media/cdrom
    • cd /media/cdorm
    I did those steps in 2 because of the comment from https://forum.parallels.com/threads/kali-2016-cant-install-parallels-tools.331796/ User MauricioB1. I was having problems related to that thread.

    Actually, any display manager fails to start. Lightdm simply fails with blank screen, with sddm from KDE I've got segfault:

    Seems that this is X server startup problem because other system parts operates normally.

    I've decided to run Kali from VirtualBox, because using it without VM tools is a subpar experience.
     
  6. Same problem here!
    macOS Sierra 10.12.3 (Host) and Kail 64bit (Guest).
    There's some workaround?

    This issue seem to be solved now. First I updated to Parallels to 12.1.2 (41525), then I installed Kali from kali-linux-2016.2-amd64.iso and ran dist-upgrade before installing the drivers.
