How to Install Kali Linux on Hard Disk in 3 steps?

Kali Linux Installation Requirements

kali linux 2.0 tutorials k4linux installation Installing Kali Linux on your computer
is an easy process. First, you’ll need compatible computer hardware.
Kali is supported on i386, amd64, and ARM (both armel and armhf)
platforms. The hardware requirements are minimal as listed below,
although better hardware will naturally provide better performance. The
i386 images have a default PAE kernel, so you can run them on systems with over 4GB of RAM. Download Kali Linux and either burn the ISO to DVD, or prepare a USB stick with Kali Linux Live as the installation medium. If you do not have a DVD drive or USB port on your computer, check out the Kali Linux Network Install.

  • CD-DVD Drive / USB boot support

Preparing for the Installation

  1. Download Kali linux.

  1. To start your installation, boot with your chosen installation
    medium. You should be greeted with the Kali Boot screen. Choose either Graphical or Text-Mode install. In this example, we chose a GUI install.

  2. Select your preferred language and then your country location.
    You’ll also be prompted to configure your keyboard with the appropriate
    keymap.

  3. Specify your geographic location.

  4. The installer will copy the image to your hard disk, probe your
    network interfaces, and then prompt you to enter a hostname for your
    system. In the example below, we’ve entered “kali” as our hostname.

  5. You may optionally provide a default domain name for this system to use.

  8. Next, set your time zone.

  9. The installer will now probe your disks and offer you four choices.
    In our example, we’re using the entire disk on our computer and not
    configuring LVM (logical volume manager). Experienced users can use the
    “Manual” partitioning method for more granular configuration options.

  10. Select the disk to be partitioned.

  11. Depending on your needs, you can choose to keep all your files in a
    single partition — the default — or to have separate partitions for one
    or more of the top-level directories. If you’re not sure which you want,
    you want “All files in one partition”.

  12. Next, you’ll have one last chance to review your disk configuration
    before the installer makes irreversible changes. After you click Continue, the installer will go to work and you’ll have an almost finished installation.

  14. Configure network mirrors. Kali uses a central repository to
    distribute applications. You’ll need to enter any appropriate proxy
    information as needed.
