    How to create the main partition 10GB instead of 2.8GB for Kali Live USB

    Hello

    Help me create the main section for 10gb instead 2.8 Gb.
    In Windows and Kali main partition is created fixed 2.8Gb and unknown partition - HPFS

    In Windows I create USB with Rufus in DD Mode.
    In Kali create USB from Terminal command line
    dd if=kali-linux-2018.2-i386.iso of=/dev/sdc bs=512k status=progress
    Also tried cfdisk for resize main partition but don't save made changes.

    How to extended or create new main partition with size 10Gb?

    When I open the terminal when entering the command parted it asks for the administrator password.
    What is the administrator password for GParted Live CD? I found one but don't work - sudo

    I know how to use the partition tools for marking partition the hard drive, flash drive, memory cards, etc. And here is the fixed size and the unknown file system.
    It does not matter which OS Windows, Linux or boot disk with utilities for working with hard disk partitions, flash drives.
    I can create the necessary size section and file system, but when I create a flash from the image, everything will be deleted and a fixed section will be created.

    Partition number? 2 enter your partion you want resized the kali obviously. fdisk -l wwill give u what it is.
    End? [245GB]? size you want it to be leave couple hundred Mb

    let it resize it shouldnt delete your install.

    When I use (parted) no data loss and system boot normal.
    I successfully changed the size from 3.2GB to 9.8GB, but the system uses 3.2GB and the disk is full 100%
    I figured out this when I installed updates and a few times there were reports of a lack of space on the disk.
