    kali-linux-2020.3-installer-amd64.iso
    downloading from the Kali Linux website itself.

    At the moment I clicked the play button to install Kali, the installer runs ad eternam displaying

    @JeMiMe83;97662. ,

    I ran into same error. I thought the tutorial's recommendation "Select Other >> Other 64-bit and click on Continue" odd. Since Kali is based on Debian, I chose Linux and the latest 64-but Debian option and was able to proceed with install. Hope it works and stay safe !

    If you choose Other and then latest install of Debian, the install will proceed without the error.

    Increase your ram from 256 to 1024... or you can try 512.
