    Post Kali Linux Live USB Install Procedure with UNetbootin

    1) download kali linux

    2 ) use the latest version of UNetbootin ( unetbootin-windows-583 )

    3 ) plug in you're USB stick ( it should be FAT32 formatted )
    launch UNetbootin and "burn" the image to you're USB stick
    remove you're USB stick correctly.

    if you use earlier versions of UNetbootin the startup menu is not correct.

    I think I saw muts said specifically not to use UNetbootin.

    It is stated clearly to use dd command in the wiki...It is the easiest way...

    read here: http://docs.kali.org/installation/ka...ve-usb-install

    I tried unetbootin and it doesn't work for me. Not sure if its unetbootin or something else.

    I will try with Win32 Disk imager and report the results.

    Ok, please, forget Unebootin, forget ppa (personal package archives) which by the way I do not think will ever be used by debian versions due to high security issues, forget UBUNTU..This is Debian..Any doubt on Ubuntu distros, refer to ubuntu forums.

    Again, refer here: http://docs.kali.org/installation/ka...ve-usb-install

    Use dd command if you can, is the easiest way and it is the Debian way...

    Do not get me wrong but before using a distro, you need to know the basics things about it. It's all in the Kali wiki.

    Luck.

    My install took around 10 minutes. But i used dd on OSX. Not that i think it should take longer on Linux systems.

    well, i did everything by the book. used dd. used it 3 times. easy enough

    However, after i select live[pae] on booting from a usb stick, i get a SQUASHFS error

    Code:
    SQUASHFS error: Unable to read page, block 30aa430, size c590
    /sbin/init: error while loading shared libraries: /lib/i386-linux-gnu/libsepol.so1:cannot read file data: Input/output error
    and then it say kernel panic - not syncing: attempted to kill init! exitcode=0x00007f00 CPU: Z PID:1 Comm: init Tainted: G C 3.12-kali1-686-pae #1 Debian 3.12.6-2kali1

    lists my hardware name, bios

    a bunch of address blocks...
    and then call trace.

    Whats the problem here?

    also, i posted a thread on the forums about this yesterday.. it said that it would be posted pending moderation by a moderator.

    its still pending moderation.

    erm, i need your help.

    You might want to check usb stick, have you tried with another one?...Have you checked sha1 integrity of the download?...

    It is clearly saying: "Unable to read page, block 30aa430, size c590" and "a bunch of address blocks...". It is pointing to issues with blocks (maybe a bad usb stick or a corrupted squashfs when downloaded the .iso)

    Try that, my friend.
