Issues installing RTX 2080 Ti drivers on Kali Linux

I’ve been having tons of issues getting the drivers for these 2080s installed. I have three of them installed for the purpose of running hashcat but I’m not sure where to go from here as the system doesn’t even see them. I followed the following guide:

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

I inherited this project from a coworker and I have very little Linux knowledge outside of running commands and such, so if there is a glaring mistake it’s likely I don’t even know that it’s the problem. Any help would be appreciated. I hope I’ve included enough info, if not let me know what’s missing.

Please check if you have secure boot enabled in bios and disable it.
Please run nvidia-bug-report.sh as root and attach the resulting .gz file to your post. Hovering the mouse over an existing post of yours will reveal a paperclip icon.
https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1043347/announcements/attaching-files-to-forum-topics-posts/

secure boot is disabled. I’ve attached the bug report log to the initial post.

You’re booting with kernel parameter
acpi=off
please remove it, then create a new nvidia-bug-report.log
Furthermore, please update your bios:

entry removed and BIOS flashed. attached is the new bug report.

as an added note, nvidia-smi now shows data and hashcat can run a benchmark
nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (2.23 MB)

Driver loads fine now.
One important part is missing, on multi-gpu systems the nvidia-persistenced needs to be running, started on boot, otherwise you will experience random gpu crashes and reduced performance.
Maybe this is already installed, please try:
sudo systemctl enable nvidia-persistenced
sudo systemctl start nvidia-persistenced

Edit: if that fails, please post the output of
which nvidia-persistenced

doesn’t look like it was setup. thanks for all the help on this. I’m guessing that the acpi setting was the culprit?

Yes. It’s a parameter for trouble-shooting, only the very basic mainboard hardware will work with it.
Did the persistenced start up? Did you locate the file?

yep all set
