    Solving the Network Detect Hard Drive Install Problem for kali-linux 1.06 thru 1.09

    Ever since kali 1.06 we have been unable to complete a Hard Drive(HD) Install of Kali Linux on several of our computers. This was a boring on-going problem. We could use flash drives but during any HD install, the install process froze at the Network Detect Stage.

    We finally got so tired of the problem that we decided to try an alternative solution and put our remote viewer intuitives on the matter and try nonlocal consciousness. After about five minutes they focused on the internal wifi receiver. Bingo!!!

    We opened up the back of the computer, slid the Broadcom BCM 4313 802.11bgn out of the slot. started the computer and the install process for kali-linux 1.09 went flawlessly.

    The computer was then shut down, the Broadcom receiver slid back into the slot. Kali-linux 1.09 recognized the wireless and worked fine.

    So something in the install routines for kali-linux cannot handle this wifi device since kali-linux 1.06.

    We hope the next kali-linux version corrects this problem.

    For those that have this problem the solution is only a screwdriver away.

    Do not try altering the BIOS, we tried that. It did not work. Make sure you remove the device from the slot NOT just unhook the antenna leads.

    You could go here:

    Our Teams are just end users like you and have no standing in kali-development however we would prefer that you provided more info then simply did not work to those overseeing kali development as we want this issue resolved as much as you.

    If the install process is freezing at the Network Detect stage then remove all the devices that deal with networking and try again. Make sure these network devices are physically removed from their slots. Changing BIOS setting as we mentioned above have no effect.

    If your install process is freezing elsewhere or just not completed then it may be another problem.
