Installing Kali (Kali only & Dual Boot)

If you want to install Kali Linux as Kali Only or Dual Boot with other OS, you have 3 pre-installation tasks. First, you need to download the Kali ISO. One thing I would like to suggest here is to download the Kali Live Version. By using Live Mode, even if something is missing after installing, you will still be able to access it from Live Mode. You can also install from Live Version.

This is for people in Burma. How To Download Kali ISO without any errors(for Burmese only)

After downloading the Kali Live ISO, you have to create Kali installer USB stick. If you don't know how to make a USB installer, you can see here. How to create installer USB

Once the Kali installer USB has been created, the next step is to partition in advance for those who will dual boot. It is not necessary for those who will install only Kali. If you don't know how to pre-partition, you can see here. How to create partition for Dual Boot

If you've made it this far, you're ready to install. Before installing, you need to check your computer's BIOS system first. If Secure Boot is enabled in BIOS, you need to disable it. In addition, in order to create and use virtual machines for Hacking Labs to test, Virtualization Technology is also disabled, so it is necessary to disable it while entering the BIOS. In some BIOS systems, it is possible to disable Secure Boot after setting an Administrator password. If you have to set a password, you need to remember it carefully so that you don't forget it. Another thing is that some computers have UEFI and Legacy, and there are some that work fine in UEFI and some work in Legacy, so if something fails, you need to try switching to another one. You also need to put USB first in the boot order in the BIOS.

Once everything is done, you can install the USB stick and boot from the USB. (Turn off the computer. Insert the Kali installer USB stick. Then turn the power back on. Now you can see Kali's Boot Menu.

Go to Installer. After installation, it will open as Live Mode by default.

Continue as default

Continue as default

Continue as default/p>

The next step is to connect to WiFi. If you don't have WiFi, you can make a WiFi hotspot from your phone and connect. I will leave pictures for this step.

hostname is the machine name. When you open Terminal, it's followed by @. Default is kali. If you keep it the same, you will get user@kali. It will appear every time you open Terminal, so you can choose the one that is convenient for you. I will continue as Kali.

Continue without any texts

You can use as you like here.

This has become important. It must be remembered. Space cannot be separated. If you enter khit here, it will be combined with kali and khit@kali will appear in Terminal. Add convenience. We need to remember. Continue

Make passwords for you.


Select manual because we need to create partitions.

Since it's only one HDD, there are 2 parts, the pre-partitioned part and the part where Windows or other OS is installed. Must not be wrong. If you install Kali only, there is no problem. I will put it in the Free Space that is shown as an example in the picture (the pre-divided part). For those who have a lot of storage on the HDD, there is no problem. However, for those with less storage space, it may be better not to separate /home in the partition. Actually, it is better to install Kali only, even if it is only 256GB. Also, if you can only give 256GB for Dual Boot, I would recommend to give more system partition. Here, I'm going to break down the 240GB to be the most convenient. Select the section to load and click continue.

Since we will divide the partition to install Kali, we will continue as Create New Partition.

ဒThis is where all the GBs that Kali pre-partitioned will reside. For those who will install Kali Only, the entire HDD will be on because it is not necessary to pre-partition.

Enter 2GB first and continue.

Not important. Continue

not important. Continue

In this step, click Use as;

Be careful where it appears. If you see EFI Partition here, you will need to select 1GB more for EFI Partition. If you don't see the EFI Partition, you don't need to partition it. For the 2GB section, select SWAP Area and continue.

Done setting up the partition & Continue

Now we can see the swap area partition. Go into free space and add another partition.

Write another 2GB from Create New Partition and continue.

Not important. Continue


Click Mount Point.

Choose /boot and Continue.

Done setting up the partition

Enter into Free space and then create new partition.

Since there is only 236GB, I will give 180GB to the system partition. Calculate based on their HDD. As for the system (/) partition, the more you can provide, the better.

Since the default is already selected for the System partition (/), there is no need to change anything. Done setting up the partition.

Enter the remaining free space and create partition.

Take all GB.

Default is the home partition. The part where there will be user data. You don't need to fix it, so do Done setting up the partition.

Now, the 4 partitions needed to install Kali are complete. root (/), swap, boot (/boot), Home (/home). When the swap area was selected, computers with an EFI partition must be added, so there will be 5 partitions. Everything is ready, so we are going to finish partitioning.

Yes and Continue

System installation ...

Software selection. The desktop environment is Xfce (default) and GNOME and KDE. Keep it as default NXfce). (Those who will install the Kali Everything version will need to check the large box at the bottom. Then everything will be available.)

Select & Install , this step take long.

No for network mirror.

It will be asking if you want to install GRUB Boot Loader. You must select Yes.

Always select the second line here. Those who install dual and not in VirtualBox may have a lot of text depending on the machine condition. Continue

Remove USB Stick and then Continue.

When everything is done, you should see the GRUB Boot Menu. (GRUB Menu design may differ depending on Kali version)
