Kali linux not installing?!?!?!

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello.

I have a problem, let me explain it.

So my goal is to dual boot kali linux with windows, via an usb. 

1. This usb is working perfectly and have been tested on other devices.
2. I insert the usb and i setup and install kali linux, but then after the installation the computer restarts and windows is starting... so i assume that i need to go into the booting menu and choose the new installed Kali Linux.
3. But kali linux is not listen in the booting menu, but i just installed it 

How do i fix this problem?

Thank you so much for all the help i get.

The bootloader for Kali is likely still on your USB. Go into your motherboard's boot menu, select the USB stick/disk/ssd and boot from it.

Why do you want Kali?

 

While it can be installed, Kali is meant to run as a live session (off the usb)

 

I recommend a more mainstream distro like ubuntu or mint. All preinstalled packages from Kali are available on those.

Don't do this. It makes no sense.

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

Nope, from the usb i get to the setup/installation process.

You are the man. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

It's not about discouraging him, it's about saving him the hassle of installing a distribution that was never meant to be installed and is not targeted at people who don't know how a boot loader works.

 

If he's looking for an entry point into Linux there are infinitely better choices like mint, ubuntu, elementary, zorin etc. All the "h4xxor" stuff can be installed separately on any of those if he really feels the need for it.

If you dual boot of one hard drive it won't say what OS is on it. You'll need to know what partition contains what system. Sometimes this is even true with one system for each hard drive.

Is this like a threat comment? Are you gonna DDOS him with a system you can't get working? :P

Hahahahahahahahahahahahaha

 

Either 12 year old or very insecure adult. 

 

Kali linux is a penetration testing linux that was never meant to be installed anywhere. If you can't figure out the bootloader, you likely won't have much luck with any of the "hacking" software either.

Since you joined the forum you have literally only made posts about your issues installing Kali (and a post about removing your bios chip ?!?!)

 

For the love of God stop trying, Kali isn't designed as a desktop OS and it won't make you a hacker
