    It's impossible to read anything on the picture.

    Have you checked the checksum before writing to USB?

    What do you mean with "have you checked the checksum before writing to USB"
    If you mean that if the USB is working, then yes, i have been using that USB to install kali linux on two other computers

    On the download page, there is a hashsum on the same line as the download link. Run sha256sum on the file you download it and compare to the result. It must match. If it doesn't match, then there is most likely an issue with the ISO.
