    Can't boot Kali 2 from USB drive

    Hi guys,
    I had Kali on my bootable flash drive and I decided to update it to newer version. I downloaded Kali 2 image and extracted it on my flash drive using:
    Code:
    dd if=kali2.iso of=/dev/sdb bs=512k
    Everything went smoothly so I rebooted my PC and Kali didn't boot. It just says "Failed to load ldlinux.c32". It is older machine so I decided to try the "Light" version, but it didn't change anything. Still the same error message.
    Don't you know what could be causing this problem and how could I solve it?
    Thanks

    Then Follow Up the Next
    1- first download Win32 Disk from https://launchpad.net/win32-image-writer
    2- plug your usb and Select the iso you sownloaded and click on write and wait till it's finish ,
    3- restart your pc and change boot order to USB ..

    Having the same issue. Followed M0D1xD's instructions, but always the same results. I also formatted the drive to FAT16, but that didn't help either. Running on a Lenovo L440.

    Hey there,

    try this command:

    sudo dd if=kali.iso of=/dev/rdiskN bs=1m

    replace N with the disk number

    good luck
