Wireless Not Working Because of rfkill



Recently I have downloaded and installed a type of Linux called: Parrot Security OS.
I have been having a problem with the wifi settings, whenever I write in rfkill unblock all (or give an ID for the command, it only unblocks the soft one), so the result of the command is:
3: phy0: Wireless LAN
Soft blocked: no
Hard blocked: yes

I have been reading for hours and looking for hours, and this is the last place where I have a single chance of having someone to help me fix this problem.
NOTE: the "sudo rfkill unblock all" doesn`t work either. I have an airplane mode button on my laptop (with which I can turn the soft block on/off).
Almost forgot to mention: I am using a Lenovo Yoga 2 13 laptop.
Also, the Parrot Security OS`s rfkill commands is similar to ones of Ubuntu 10.0.1.

Thank you for your help
Best Regards,
