So I installed a copy of Kali Linux 2.0 on a seperate partition on the drive in my MacBook (MacBook 2,1 mid 2007, 160Gb HDD, 2GB RAM, Intel Core 2 Duo) and now, after attempting to get more Kali Linux tools in Kali, I get a kernel panic upon attempting to boot OS X thru GRUB boot loader (for some reason entirely skipping rEFInd). The first kernel panic being from attempting to boot what GRUB calls the 32bit OS X Lion, and the second what GRUB denote as 64bit. Kali Linux still boots fine. Is there any way to recover the OS X install or am I screwed?
