Kali Linux Installation Procedure

Partition Disk – here you have option to choose how do u want to install your os. Here we will discuss in two option. 1St Use Entire Disk and 2nd Manually. Use Entire disk means os will create your whole hard disk in one partition and OS will install in this partition. And Manually means you can create a separate partition for your Kali Linux OS and install it on the separate partition. I recommend if you are advance user than play with manually otherwise go with ‘use entire disk’ but remember the meaning of it.
Here we are choosing Manually

After choosing manually this window will appear – select your hard disk and click on continue

Select yes and click on continue

Select above image’s highlighted option  and click continue

Select ‘Done setting up the partition’ and click on continue

Select ‘Finish partition and write change to disk’ and click on partition

Select ‘No’ and click on continue

Select ‘Yes’ and click on continue

Install the system ( it takes time)

Configure the Package manager – use a network mirror ( If you will choose ‘Yes’ than ready for online updates and it takes lot of time so better to choose ‘No’ if you have slow net connection )
Here I am choosing ‘Yes’

Leave blank and click on continue

Install the grub boot loader – Select ‘Yes’ and click on continue

Installation Finished
