    Question I have problem when installing Kali Linux in HDD

    Hi guys. I'm new to here.
    I'm using the latest version of Kali(2018.01). Kali Linux was written to my USB stick. I tried to write the OS to the USB using UltraISO, YUMI and universal USB Installer.
    The problem is, it works perfectly in live boot mode, but when I try to install it on my hdd, it gives me an error. says "Failed to copy file from CD-ROM"

    check this images out.

    There are files in /cdrom folder but I don't think where I should mount them to.


    Any answer would be appreciated. Have a good day.

    Did you verify the hashes against what's on the kali.org website? It's probably fine, since the USB stick works in live boot mode, but that's always my starting point when I have install trouble.

    Use rufus and select DD mode.

    I would just ignore this but.. Can't without leaving a comment.

    Read this: https://docs.kali.org/downloading/ka...ve-usb-install

    They specifically tell you to use WIN32DISKIMG .. Why would you use any other ??
    Basic principle: Always do what official sources tells you to do. Only try other ways if that doesn't work.
    And try to get help with official instructions unless your issue is related to that.

    Avoid this kind of posts in the future.
