    Kali Linux on Lenovo yoga 2 pro

    Hi @ all,

    I am aware that there are many guides and tutorials on how to install kali linux. However, none of them work for me. So hopefully anybody has an answer.

    I am trying to install kali 2016.2 64 bits on my Lenovo yoga 2 pro as dualboot with windows 10 using a bootable pendrive.

    I have downloaded the iso from the official kali website and confirmed the SHA1 is correct.
    I prepared an empty partition with 30 GB free space.
    I switched off UEFI and fast boot.

    First I tried using win32 disk imager to prepare the pendrive. However, doing that I ended up getting the "cant mount cd-rom" error. Even "mount /dev/sdb1 /cdrom" did not solve this issue (also unplugging the pendrive did not work).

    In a second attempt I used rufus with the "dd option" to prepare the pendrive.
    This time it worked and the installation started. However, every time I attempted to install kali the installation process stops with the error "the failing step is install the System" at random percentages.

    Any solutions?

    Best wishes

    Use rufus with ISO as option.
