Thread: Kali Linux Live USB install

  1. #1

    Kali Linux Live USB install

    Booting and installing Kali from a USB stick is our favorite and fastest method of getting up and running. In order to do this, we first need to image the Kali ISO on to a USB drive.

    To read the full document, check our Kali Linux Live USB install article.

    If you have any issues with this procedure, please post them in this thread.

    My Win32 Disk Imager doesn't recognizes the Kali.ISO file.
    I've seted it for "all files" and WRITE the ISO for usb but wen I restart, OS NOT FOUND
    I'm using BIOS Phoenix.

    After done the tutorial with the app Win32 Disk Imager...
    ERR: OS not found
    linux.bin not found

    Hi,
    is there a way to use Kali with an multiboot USB and grub2?
    I believe I made it with BT5 but sadly my old MutlitBoot USB was not car tired proof.

    So I started a new one.
    I've got a grub2 installation and a grub.cfg like that:
    menuentry "Kali ISO" {
    set root=(hd0,1)
    loopback loop /iso/kali-linux-1.0-amd64.iso
    linux (loop)/live/vmlinuz boot=live iso-scan/filename=/iso/kali-linux-1.0-amd64.iso
    initrd (loop)/live/initrd.img
    }

    But in the end i've got an Error:
    Live-boot will now start a shell. The error message was:
    Unable to find a medium containing a live file system

    I can't remember how i fixed that. any suggestions?

    Kind regards
    Tera

    I'm trying to install Kali from a Live USB, but I've got an issue. The USB Drive will boot to a Live version flawlessly, but when I try to install from the USB, the installer complains that I don't have the disc in the DVD drive. Well, of course I don't--it should come from the USB drive. And I can't get past that step. Anyone having the same problem?

    I had the same issue until I used the newest version of unetbootin.

    i have the same problem. I noticed that he is unable to read the /cdrom/dist/stable/Release file. I used the amd64 image.
    I also tried to extract the Files from the ISO but it seems to be currupt and i had a sha1sum mismatch. I will now try to download again and hope that this will work.
