Kali Linux Installation Procedure
- 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.
- Select your preferred language and then your country location. You’ll also be prompted to configure your keyboard with the appropriate keymap.
- Specify your geographic location.
- 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.
- You may optionally provide a default domain name for this system to use.

- Next, provide a full name for a non-root user for the system.
- A default user ID will be created, based on the full name you provided. You can change this if you like.
- Next, set your time zone.
- 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.
- Select the disk to be partitioned.
- 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”.
- 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.
- Configure network mirrors. Kali uses a central repository to distribute applications. You’ll need to enter any appropriate proxy information as needed.
NOTE! If you select “NO” in this screen, you will NOT be able to install packages from Kali repositories.
- Next, install GRUB.
- Finally, click Continue to reboot into your new Kali installation.
