What’s up An0ns? It’s An0n Ali Here
In this video tutorial, I’m going to show you that how you that, how you can Dual Boot Kali Linux
with Windows so let’s get started the first step is to download an .ISO
file of Kali Linux if you don’t have it already, go ahead and open up your favorite browser head to Kali.org/downloads once opened, scroll down and download your desired .ISO file according to your
computer’s capability if you have a 64-bit capable computer (like me) then you
probably will want the 64-bit version of Kali for performance and compatibility
reasons select the 64-bit version only if you have a 64-bit computer if you
don’t have a 64-bit capable computer or if you aren’t sure then get the 32-bit
version as it will work on both architectures next, go ahead and choose
your downloading option you can either direct download Kali through the
browsers download manager by clicking on HTTP or you can torrent it, by clicking on
Torrent. Torrenting is usually a bit faster but if you don’t have a torrent program
or don’t know what it’s torrent is, don’t worry about it and click HTTP to do a
normal download as you can see that downloading has started automatically now let’s move towards the step number 2 after downloading Kali Linux .ISO file,
the next step is the creation of a bootable USB for that you need
Win32 Disk Imager, it is a utility software that helps to create bootable USB flash
drives so to download it search for Win32 Disk Imager on Google, open the first link that pops up then simply click on download once downloaded open it and install it okay, once installed, go ahead and select
the dot ISO file that you downloaded by clicking on this browse icon make sure to check all files from this
drop-down menu okay once the .iso file is selected connect a USB drive to
your PC note that the USB drive must be at least
4 gigabytes after connecting and selecting your USB drive click on write now wait for the process to complete… okay, after process completion, we are going to create a separate partition for Kali
Linux installation to do it open your disk management settings by
right-clicking on this PC and selecting Manage now highlight disk management
from the right panel I’m going to shrink the C partition to create a separate
partition for Kali Linux if you’re a beginner I would recommend you to make
a backup of your data before this step now enter the amount of size that you
want to give to the Kali’s partition in MBs’ I’m gonna give it 35 thousand MBs’ of
space which is 35 gigabytes I also recommend you to give it at least 30 GBs’
of space as Kali Linux tends to expand over time and as you can see, the
partition for Kali has been created restart your PC then go to the boot
manager settings from here what I want you to do is, disable secure boot and
fast food options if they are enabled for you after disabling exit saving
changes again go to your boot manager and highlight the option, boot as USB
storage, then hit enter and as you can see Kali .ISO has been booted, now to
install it follow these steps>first use the arrow keys to scroll down to
graphical install and hit enter okay, so the first step of Kali’s
installation will ask you to select your preferred language you can use the mouse
or keyboard to select this on the next screen select your location and hit
continue it’ll now ask you for your standard keymap,
do this step very carefully is choosing a wrong key map can lead into
further problems if you use the standard American English keyboard like me just
click continue now wait until Kali finishes detecting the hardware on your
computer once the detection of hardware is done,
you will be asked to choose a network interface to use during the installation you can either use Ethernet for wireless if you have a Wi-Fi connection if you
selected wireless network interface it will ask you to select your Wi-Fi
network from the available ones I don’t want to configure Wi-Fi at the moment so
I’m just gonna skip it next it will ask you to supply a hostname which is kind
of like a computer name you can enter anything you want and hit enter Kali will now ask you to create a password for the root account the next step will
ask you for your timezone according to your location selected and hit enter now just wait until Kali detects the disk partitions once detected it will ask you
for the partitioning method go ahead and click on manual now select the partition
that we created earlier for Kali Linux and press continue click on create a new
partition And select the space that you want to give to your Kali partition make
sure to leave space for the swap partition as well, I’ve left 6 GBs of space
for it next set the type of partition to primary and locate the partition at
beginning now turn the bootable flag to on then click on done setting up the
partition now highlight the partition that you left earlier and hit continue again select, create a new partition and continue select the type of
partition as logical and hit enter click on use as and select swap area then
select done setting up the partition finish partitioning and continue confirm
disk partitioning by selecting yes and again hit continue after this, Kali will
start installing wait until it has completed this might take up to 30
minutes all right Kali has finished installing
and now you are presented with a window that asks you about a network mirror you
can just select no and hit continue it will now start installing grub
bootloader which helps us booting in kali linux after a few minutes, the
installer will ask you whether you want to install grub boot loader to the
Master Boot Record click yes and continue now select your hard drive from
here and click on continue it will resume installing grub bootloader just
wait until it finishes the installation once installation is done, the system
will restart and grub bootloader will appear highlight Kali Linux and hit
enter once kali linux is booted, simply type
root then type the password that you created earlier and as you can see Kali
has been successfully installed on our computer you can move into Windows by
selecting windows from the grub bootloader I have also created a video
on 10 things you must do after installing Kali Linux on your machine I recommend watching you that too, to make sure your Kali is secure and uses the
best tools available anyways if this tutorial was helpful, consider giving
