Installing Kali Linux‌







Minimal Installation Requirements 66 Step by Step Installation on a Hard Drive 66 Unattended Installations 91

ARM Installations 94 Troubleshooting Installations 95 Summary 100


In this chapter, we will focus on the Kali Linux installation process. First, we will discuss the min- imum installation requirements (section 4.1, “Minimal Installation Requirements” [page 66]) to ensure that your real or virtual system is well-configured to handle the type of installation that you will pursue. Then we will go through each step of the installation process (section 4.2, “Step by Step Installation on a Hard Drive” [page 66]) for a plain installation, as well as for a more se- cure installation involving a fully encrypted file system. We will also discuss preseeding, which allows unattended installations (section 4.3, “Unattended Installations” [page 91]) by providing predetermined answers to installation questions. We will also show you how to install Kali Linux on various ARM devices (section 4.4, “ARM Installations” [page 94]), which expands Kali’s capabili- ties far beyond the desktop. Finally, we will show you what to do in the rare case of an installation failure (section 4.5, “Troubleshooting Installations” [page 95]), so you can work through the issue and successfully finish a tough install.
