    Unhappy Troubles Installing Kali Linux, hardware

    So I have been trying to get this to work for about a week now, I have done research and all of that but I cant seem to find any solution. I have done all the steps I need to dual boot, creating a disk or whatever in computer management.

    The problem I am having is that when I am in the installation I get this "Detect network hardware", Some of your hardware needs non-free firmware files to operate. The firmare can be loaded from removable media such as a USB stick or floppy.

    The missing firmware files are: ath10k/cal-pci-0000:01:00.0.bin ath10k/QCA6174/hw3.0/firmware-5.bin.

    If you have such media available now, insert it, and continue.
    Load missing firmware from removable media?
    Yes/No


    I am booting the installation with an USB, and I have another usb which I have all of these files on https://github.com/kvalo/ath10k-firmware, these are the files are on my 2nd usb, https://gyazo.com/2051303652d4321c701d3ffaa2515eaa https://gyazo.com/69152da3fee31cb6035bb7c3c75b8954 https://gyazo.com/91a36d11632ff3f3d6cd9e58de188615 https://gyazo.com/becd904caee715848f32f7e75b4a2f3b https://gyazo.com/409b0a267d427cd3c9156b342cd09d61 . When I get that "Detect network hardware" I insert the 2nd usb and I press yes, but nothing happens! And my USB is fat32 whatever that even is.
    ( https://gyazo.com/7aaedb0bab9fc2f4905827e5355ec691 ) I have only placed the files in the usb and I have not done any mounting or whatever andddd I have an laptop with no ethernet port.

    Picking drivers by the installer from the USB is hit & miss. Sometimes it picks & sometimes it doesn't. It didn't work for me either. Click NO and continue the installation.

    Those are the drivers of your wifi adapter and ethernet. After installation copy those drivers in /lib/firmware/.

    I am having major issues with trying to install Kali onto a Dell Inspiron 1501, as I wanted this to be my primary Kali machine. I replaced the hard drive with a blank one (old one became corrupted somehow), went through the entire installation process, and was happy when it stated that it was complete and to reboot. I removed the USB from the drive, waited for it to reboot, only to be met with error messages and other things, like a screen full of colorful vertical lines. It almost seemed like the ISO image wasn't mounted to the hard drive or something. It seemed to work fine when in "live" mode, but doesn't want to work off of the hard drive. Also, I downloaded the 64-bit ISO from kali.org, so that I may dual boot with Windows 10 (on a different system), but that, too, gave me a hard time. When booted to install from the USB, it gave me a message saying something about the USB file system missing or corrupt, although it is a brand new USB. Any solutions to either or both of these problems? Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
