    Hellow guys. I have problem with keeping my config files when I make persistent bootable kali linux on my SDHC card. I was following many tutorials, but there is no persistance.conf file like in other tutorials. Should I try to make bootable USB stick? Is even possible to make bootable SDHC card where I can save my progress, configuration files and many others?
    I hope that u understanded my problem.

    I made a live USB using mac linux USB loader for my mackbook pro. And when I try boot from it, it does not show the boot menu where I get the option of installing it, instead it directly shows

    "Welcome to Enterprise! - Version 0.3.1"
    Available boot options:
    Press the key corresponding to the number of the options that you want.

    1)Boot Linux from ISO file
    2)Modify Linux kernel boot options

    Press any other key to reboot the system.

    In my case, I have looked at the tutorial and created the bootable USB stick using the specified command: dd if = kali-live.iso of =/dev/sdc bs = 512.

    Restarted my computer and I boot from pendrive, he said that the translation into Portuguese was incomplete and in time to "load the data from the cd" (as he says also in Debian), said that "no kernel module was found".

    I've done four or five downloads the ISO image. Did data analysis to see if it was corrupted. I recorded the pendrive by MS Windows. But nothing worked.
    I've been trying for almost a week.

    Grateful

    Hey All just wanted to get some insight with a problem getting Kali Linux to boot up in persistent mode. I've gone through the direct website of Kali to setup a live USB using a SanDisk CZ48 32gb 3.0usb and the ISO seems to get on and I know that the persistent folder is made but when I boot into the persistent option from the boot menu screen I get a Kernel panic error ---[ end Kernel panic - not syncing: Attempted to kill init! exit code=0x000000200 ] --- My computer then freezes and I have to power it off, after doing this the first couple of times it would boot in and I could work in the persistent mode but then it just stopped working and I would only get the kernel panic error. Don't have a different computer to check but my specs:
    Lenovo Yoga 700 14ISK, CPU Intel® Core™ i5-6200U CPU @ 2.30GHz × 4, Graphics: Intel® HD Graphics 520 (Skylake GT2), OS-Type Ubuntu 16.04.2 LTS 64-bit, SSD 43.5gb(partition of my ubuntu) also have windows 10 partitioned as main part of :C drive.

    I hope I posted enough info basically just keep getting Kernel panic error when booting into persistent version of Kali Linux and can't figure out if my laptop is not compatible or I just have some setting wrong.

    Thanks

    Greetings! I made a bootable USB of 8GiB via a Blackarch and Xferience script using dd to create it, but once I installed the ISO image, which is the newest 17.1 x64 Mate, I see Kali listed on the screen with the rest of the three other partitions! I then click on Kali, but contrary to version 16.1 Rolling I get a shell screen which demands a login and password and also expecting commands instead of the GUI starting screen with all the programs and the Mate desktop environment! How do I get past this issue?
    Respectfully,

    USB install with file system encrypted

    Hi,
    If I use this procedure (USB Live) to create an USB install is the file system on the USB pen encrypted?
    If not, is there a way to have a bootable USB pen drive with Kali Linux?
    Thank you

    cld

    I think the setup should have a disk space check code as I didn't realize that it requires 20gb free space and I tried to install it in 10gb drive so it should say that this much space is not enough.

    So just to warn users, something like this should be there.

    Hello all,

    I need your help. I'm trying to install Kali from a bootable usb. I have created a partition on my hard drive as you can see here. When I boot from the USB I don't get to a installation menu. I Get into the GNU GRUB version 2.02 menu. If I use the ls command I see the following directories:

    (memdisk) (hd0) (hd0,msdos1)
    (hd1) (hd1,gpt5)
    (hd1) (hd1,gpt4)
    (hd1) (hd1,gpt3)
    (hd1) (hd1,gpt2)
    (hd1) (hd1,gpt1)
    (hd2) (hd2,gpt1)

    I think I have to select the hd2 hard drive? But how do I know for sure? Do you guys have any suggestions?

    I'm having this same issue. I've got the USB set up for a Persistent Live install of Kali, however once I click on that option at the boot up menu, it runs some of the automated text and then the screen goes black and the monitor loses video feed. I'm using the 64 bit .iso and plan on trying the 32 bit version once I get off work. If anyone else can provide some information it would be greatly appreciated. I've also tried playing with BIOS settings but I can't seem to find one that makes a difference.

    Hello, unfortunately I am having a similar problem as these gentleman. I originally used tried using win32, but it would recognize my Kali ISO file. So i switched to YUMI, which is an amazing program. I downloaded Linux Mint , and Kali onto it. I successfully installed Mint onto one hard drive flawlessly. I successfully live booted Kali just to check it out. Now when i went to actually install Kali on my other ssd, everything works in graphical install up until it tries to recognize my 'cdrom'. It fails, I watched all the youtube videos on it and of course read around here on the forums. I went into the shell, tried to create a mkdir etc.. I finally got that method to work, then it gave me another error. back to square one. I also tried removing my usb and re inserting . That also failed. I have a feeling it is because of yumi. Is there a better live usb program, one that most people have work for them? Thank you in advance

    Kali Linux KDE USB boot: ISO signature and user couchdbadmin

    Hello,

    I just installed kali-linux-kde on USB key with persistent data partition and I have two questions:

    1) checksum
    I followed this document to check that my iso image was ok: Verify the ISO Using the SHA256SUMS File https://docs.kali.org/introduction/d...i-linux-images
    Checksum ISO = checksum in file SHA256SUMS but I have the following message about signature from gpg for Windows:

    Code:
    gpg --verify SHA256SUMS.gpg SHA256SUMS
    gpg: Signature made  using RSA key ID 7D8D0BF6
    gpg: Good signature from « Kali Linux Repository <devel@kali.org> » [unknown]
    gpg: WARNING: This key is not certified with a trusted signature!
    gpg:          There is no indication that the signature belongs to the owner.
    Primary key fingerprint: 44C6 513A 8E4F B3D3 0875  F758 ED44 4FF0 7D8D 0BF6
    Is it correct ?

    2) when I boot on my USB key I see the following users "couchdbadmini..." and "root". Is it correct to have this "couchdbadmini..." user ?
    I saw another post (20 of June) with this question but I'm not really convinced by the answer.

    Thank you for your help!

    Best regards

    Dell Inspiron mini 10

    Having some issues installing on this machine. I've watched tutorials, read this thread, can't seem to figure it out.
    After the install, I get an "ACPI error: could not enable powerbutton event", also says "trying to get vblank count for disabled" twice, then a "reg 00000000 save 00000000", then "kvm: disabled by bios", then "dell_smm_humon: unable to get SMM Dell signature"

    It's just stuck on that screen.

    Help please?

    Need help with booting Kali LInux after install

    I'm trying to single boot. I finish the install and everything seems to work out fine, but when I press f10 on the startup and enter Boot theres not Kali Linux option. I go to the bios, disable fast boot and put the boot mode to legacy, also disable safe boot, but the kali linux boot just doesn't show up. Then I boot the live image from the USB drive and check the hard drive and Kali Linux is installed and all the boot files are there. I restart the computer and there is still no boot option.

    Follow this thread to re-install grub: https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...ith-Windows-10

    I want to see the screenshot of your f10 boot menu options and UEFI settings. Switch back to UEFI. LegacyBIOS is unnecessary.

    AABoyels posted a question but I see no answer for it... I am experiencing a similar problem. I followed the tutorial provided, but when I boot Kali it takes me to the boot menu... I actually wanted to run it live bit when I click on it it shows a loading message ( to quick for me to read ) and then nothing happens. I then tried installing it using all three installing options and I always get stuck at the step where it asks for a disk in the cdrom... Can someone please help me... It would be great if both problems could be solved...

    Hi Folks,
    I'm running a kali rolling 2017.1 with persistence from a USB key : ok ;
    I try to get linux headers for 4.9.0-kali3-amd64 , but not available any more : ok
    I do 'apt update' & 'apt dist-upgrade' ok
    but - it stays in 4.9.0-kali3-amd64 and don't install the new 4.12 (where I could get linux-headers) ..

    Any hint ?

    please remember USB with persistence installed this way : https://docs.kali.org/downloading/ka...sb-persistence

    df -h :

    You are supposed to reboot your system after dist-upgrade.

    Of course I did reboot

    Maybe because of :
    /dev/sdb1 2.5G 2.5G 0 100% /lib/live/mount/persistence/sdb1
    /dev/loop0 2.3G 2.3G 0 100% /lib/live/mount/rootfs/filesystem.squashfs

    Hello there!

    I have a problem booting a KALI x64 iso (latest) on a new Notebook that only supports UEFI. When I boot it (disabled save boot), I only get a black screen with a white "-" or "_" sign in the bottom right corner -it is not blinking so I guess it is not a cursor.

    When I replace the efi/boot/* files on the stick with files from another image which I can successfully boot, then this *.efi is executed and runs (though of course fails to further boot as other files are missing) - I just did this to check if the efi folder is scanned and contents executed by the UEFI.

    So I think something is not working correctly with the bootx64.efi or what it wants to do.

    I also tried various options in Rufus on Windows to copy the iso to the usb stick. Namely MBR/GPT FAT32/NTFS - I either dont get any booting at all or I get the same result (black screen with "-" in lower right corner).

    I also tried copying another bootable ISO to the same stick - which works, so the stick itself is running fine as it is.

    Any ideas what I can do to troubleshoot this?

    Thanks for your input!

    can't seem to add persistence. OSX doesn't recognize the "du" listing it as an illegal option.

    end=7gb
    read start _ < <(du -bcm kali-linux-2016.2-amd64.iso | tail -1); echo $start
    parted /dev/sdb mkpart primary $start $end

    I am also having an issue with the du command. I downloaded the current 2017.2 iso but the du command does not find the file.

    UPDATE:
    I found the solution to my problem here: https://docs.kali.org/kali-dojo/03-k...nce-encryption

    I ask this question, because I have a Kali live USB AMD64 and it works perfectly on PCs with AMD but it's impossible to boot on PCs with Intel

    Thank you
    AMD64 is a instruction set..(and obviously it is made by AMD.)....but that does not mean it wont's run on 64-bit Intel processors......
