This tutorial is continuing the last How to Install Kali Linux on Virtual Box part 1, you can check it first before go to this 2nd part tutorial.

Step by Step Install Kali Linux on Virtual Box:

11. After finished setting up the time zone, now we continue to set the partition disk. Because we use virtual machine, we can just use the disk available there.

12. Actually in this partitioning part you can do it by your own and modify as you want, usually in Linux if you want to create manually you can set up the /home, /tmp, /var, /usr, and so on. But since its in virtual machine so I will just leave with the default "for the new users" that mean all data will be in the same partition.

16. During installation the system will ask whether we want to use network mirror or not. If you choose yes, the system will try to find the closest mirror to download the latest package(usually take time longer). You can choose NO in this step, because you can set this option manually in sources.list file after installation finished.

17. The last step is installing the GRUB boot loader. We are not installing the Kali Linux together with other OS-es, so we can just choose YES in this step.

    • v4L

      do you use your default onboard wireless device?Virtual Box can’t access the default wireless device. Maybe you can try to use the USB wireless card and try again.

  • hallo All.
    i have trouble in installing Kali on Virtual box.

    in installing NETWORK MIRROR, when i will install network mirror, always appears message like this..

    Bad archive mirror

    an error has been detected while trying to use the specified Debian archive mirror.

    Possible reasons for the error are: incorrect specified; mirror is not available (possibly due to an unreliable newtork connection); mirror is broken (for example because an invalid release file was found); mirror does not support the correct debian version.

    additional details may be available in /var/log/syslog or on virtual console 4.

    please chek the specified mirror or try different one


    i’ve downloaded version of kali linux, Kali 1.0.3 , 1.0.5 and 1.0 lite.
