Kali Linux 2022.1 & MacBook M1 Pro – boot issue

In one of the last Kali’s updates a new kernel was installed and now if I try to run it inside my VM app (VMware Fusion and Parallels) for my MacBook Pro with an M1 Pro processor gives an error.

While I don’t find a better solution or a new update solves this issue, there is a workaround that can be made to boot again Kali Linux.
The fix is just to modify the Grub menu to start automatically another kernel, in this case, I’ll use Linux 5.15.0-kali3-arm64

For an easy Grub update, there is an app called grub-customizer that is very easy to use.

$ sudo apt install grub-customizer
$ sudo grub-customizer

Edit the desired values.
In this case, we’ll change 5.16.0-kali5-arm64 for 5.15.0-kali3-arm64

Press Save and restart.
Kali will boot again.
