  • This walkthrough provides detailed steps for installing Kali in steel with FDE for EFI based Macs. You can use this method to either produce a dual boot system or to create a bootable encrypted USB install. Other walkthroughs on the internet provided the foundation for my post, but I have found the methods in these other sources to be somewhat unreliable and requiring significant tweaking. The major reference for my work is acknowledged in Note vi below, and kudos to 0xBADCA7 for doing the in

    2. Open Terminal

    3. Convert the iso to dmg (I don't know if this is actually necessary ...)

    2 ) use the latest version of UNetbootin ( unetbootin-windows-583 )

    3 ) plug in you're USB stick ( it should be FAT32 formatted )
    launch UNetbootin and "burn" the image to you're USB stick
    remove you're USB stick correctly.

    if you use earlier versions of UNetbootin the startup menu is not correct.

  • Hi to everyone! I'm new to Ubuntu 11.04 and I think I really like it... So I have a problem with my wifi usb card...

    My pc's specs are:
    Motherboard: GA-P35C-DS3R
    Proccessor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Quad CPU Q6600 @2.40Ghz 2.40GHz
    Ram:4GB

    So the problem has to do with my wifi usb card "High-Power wireless-g USB adapter High Gain"
    It uses the Realtek rtl8187 driver.

    After I first installed Ubuntu 11.04, as a side along to MS Windows 7, using your g

  • Hey all, I just wanted to share the process I went through to somehow put together a working USB that can dual boot BackTrack 5 and Ubuntu 12.04, with ubuntu being persistent as well.

    This IS a manual procedure since tools like Unetbootin and the provided usb creator on ubuntu cannot dual boot systems, and they use syslinux. I used GRUB to get mine working.

    I don't really know what goes on behind the scenes in GRUB, or ubuntu's boot up process. I pretty much made this by pullin

  • I have previously posted about issues with BT4 booting when there is a SOURCES folder present on the root of the drive. As it turns out, this is related to a bug in the version of apt-cdrom that is distributed with BT4 and BT5.

    I encountered this issue because I was creating a multiboot USB drive with multiple distributions of Linux, along with UBCD4WIN, and an all-in-one Windows 7 installer im

  • First of all let me clarify that there are some "weird" problems for people trying to install BT5 on Acer Aspire 5742zg and the whole line of those notebooks in general because of their hardware.
    They use nvidia optimus system (one integrated gpu and one discrete) whose support is still experimental in linux as well as some Broadcom WIFI adapter which needs you to download and patch the closed source blob from their site, as the opensource driver doesn't work.

  • I've install a few other boot usb in the past but first time coming across this issue. Following the steps in the docs on how to install to usb, I do get a usb that boots to Kali. But the problem is Win32diskimager is putting a 2.2gb partition on my usb and it is not accessible in windows to transfer other data to. Is there anyway for it just to install without creating it's own partition? So I can still use the rest of the usb for other storage.

  • I have been trying to get my linux fedora 10 wireless connectivity running but am not quite there. This is a desktop box but I do not have a wired connection to it, so I'm dependent on getting the wireless running. It dual boots to Windows (ugh, sorry) and the wireless works fine there. I also tried the ndiswrapper route but had no luck with it, and abandoned that trail after reading material suggesting its inferiority.

    Installing an ISO using a USB external drive has several advantages: it is environmentally correct, it saves money, avoids material waste, etc. etc. etc. FreeBSD provides the memstick.img, supposedly for that purpose - which is great!

  • It seems that the only way of transferring files via USB between a S3/N2 and a Mac is Samsung's own Keis software - which is better than nothing... but not much. Googles Android File Tranfer software does not work with these phones (UPDATE: it does work if you uninstall Kies) and the 'USB Mass Storage' mode available on other Android phones is not present. The 'Camera' mode seems to be broken as well.

    I'm trying to install kali on my laptop, but I can't boot it.

    I've first tried using my USB, copied the image using win32diskimager, and while booting, I'm stuck at a black screen, and in my top left corner all I can see is "boot:" . It can't even get to the install menu.
    I hangs there, I've waited more than 15 minutes, and nothing is happening.

    Then I tried to burn the image to DVD, and I encounter the same problem.

    I tried to install Kali on an encryped HDD with both grub and boot partition on an external USB drive, but I got a I/O message during grub setup on the USB drive's MBR.

    So after booting the live disk and manually mounting the encrypted partition, I found the /etc/crypttab file was empty. I then added the line:

  • Problems installing...

    11 months ago

    I'm trying to install Kali linux on my HP mini 110, but every time I press install or graphic install, the boot menu just goes away and nothing happens.
    I've tried using the live boots, and those work fine.
    I've also nuked the hard drive so there's nothing on it.
    I'm using the i386 version, I've already tried using the AMD one and it just says I should use the i386 version.
    Could somebody please help me with this?

    1) Grub.exe (Find the latest here... http://download.gna.org/grub4dos/ Download the zip file and inside is the grub.exe)

    2) grldr (This is also in the zip file you downloaded)
