2013-08-06, 17:33
hello i have downloaded kali-linux version l.0 Architecture:i386 image type: iso Download type: direct , and burnt it to a 4 gb dvd rw after i had formatted the media.

Then on my toshiba satellite c855d-s5209 , i booted dban to erase windows 7, and all of my hard drive.
Then i put the dvd with kali- linux in the computer.

Then the kali linux boot menu shows up it says

live (686-pae)
live (686-pae fail safe)
Live (forensic mode)
Graphical install
install with speech synthesis

I then clicked graphical install in starts up but then when it says detect hardware, it freezes every time. then i try just install, it freezes on the same point . i then try live (686-pae failsafe) its say boot failed! this debian live image failed to boot. Please file a bug against the live-boot package.
the error message was: unable to find a medium containing a live file system.

Are you certain the image you downloaded isn't corrupt. Did you perform a sha hash check?

Recheck the SHA-1 of your download.

Try burning the dvd with lowest speed possible.

If you can, try the USB install.

Boot menu works fine and shows the 5 options. Selecting default ends in the display error
