    Question Install Kali 2016.2 on Macbook Pro Early 2011

    Hi there.
    I already did Kali 2016.2 bootable with "Mac Linux USB Loader" (USB Fat)
    and after install rEFInd on Mac OS the usb is recognized.

    The only problem is I dont have the option menu for choice between "Install or Live USB."
    Just run like Live USB.
    or what should i put in Modify Linux kernel boot option ??

    How da ... can i install Kali ?? help.
    I tried diferent way to make an usb bootable dd, Mac Linux USB Loader, unetbootin.
    if the problem was how i did bootable the usb.

    Because my main idea was install Kali in other disk. ( i want remove the original hard disk, and put my other hard disk) and after install kali put it in the mac computer..

    Sorry for my beautiful English, I hope your eyes are not bleeding when u finish to read this.

    Edit the enterprise.cfg ( I take it from the Mac Linux USB Loader forum)

    #This file is machine generated. Do not modify it unless you know what you are doing.

    entry Kali Installer
    family Debian
    initrd /install/gtk/initrd.gz
    kernel /install/gtk/vmlinuz findiso=/efi/boot/boot.iso boot=live noconfig=sudo username=root hostname=kali
    reboot mac, and start installing but like the 5 step the installation start looking for the cd-room . so.... I am stuck there..
    any ideas how to solved :P ?

    Finally I have installed Kali in my Macbook Pro Early 2011

    The easy way for me was.

    Step 1 : Install Ubuntu from USB..
    After is installed
    Step 2 : Install rEFInd ...again..
    Step 3 : Make an USB bootable with Kali with the Startup Disk Creator
    Step 4 : Finally!!! the Menu with the possibility that start the USB with diferent modes (+ Install Kali )

    from here ahead, I couldnt use the touchpad, so using just the keyboard.
    was long... but works :P
