Kali Linux 2018.1 Installation how to fix error

Failed to copy file from CD-ROM is one of the most repeated error during the installation of Kali Linux. In this tutorial I will show you How To Fix this error on Kali Linux 2018.1.

1. Create a bootable USB image with Rufus/Win32Disk in Windows 10 and make sure you select DD image and NOT ISO image, when you select DD it wont see the ISO file because it is looking for a different file type, just select “All files” then select the correct Kali Linux 2018.1 ISO file.

2. Boot from the USB and choose Graphic Install.

3. Make sure you connect to the Internet during the install using Ethernet or wifi and allow the package manager to setup correctly with mirrors etc.

4. If you are new to Linux then using Windows 10 Disk manager to delete some space on the HD you intend installing Kali Linux 2018.1 on before installing, You can do the same in Kali during the install but it is text based and not as easy to see what is going on if you have more than one HD.

If you create some free space in Windows 10 before you install Kali Linux 2018.1, then you can just Choose “Use all available free space” during the Kali Linux install and you don’t need to read a million manuals.

5. When the install finishes it will detect the “Windows 10” on your disk as “Windows Vista” and ask you whether you want to dual boot with Windows Vista, choose the Windows Vista and you are good to go.

I did at least 10 clean installs from the Kali Linux 2018.1 USB Image for dual boot with Windows 10, the only ones that worked 100 percent were with a DD image and where the Internet was found and package manager configured during installation.

When I installed this way, I was able to do all the tutorials and install Kali Linux 2018.1 without any problems.
