How To Install Kali Linux On VirtualBox

Video is ready, Click Here to View ×

To continue the software series of videos, I want to take a look at installing Kali Linux on VirtualBox.

I’m running Windows 10 and have Oracle VM Virtual Box installed already.

For the rest of the video, there are some other downloads that you will need if you want to follow along:

Kali Linux ISO File:

If you don’t have VMBox installed, you can download it from here:

Be sure to setup the Virtual Machine the same…

  2. This is a pretty old video, so I don't know if anyone will respond, but I need help. I have been trying ALL day to install Kali Linux and I keep on running into the same issue, whenever I select graphical install, it will show a bunch of data, and then say "kernel panic – not syncing: Fatal exception in interrupt." I have looked up the problem on multiple sites, and apparently the problem is pretty uncommon. You are my last hope until I give up and move on to trying to install a different version of Linux. I really want Kali since I have heard it is the "best of the best" for experimentation and testing. Anyways, I have Windows 10 x64 bit, and I downloaded a x32 bit ISO off of their official website, I plugged in all the info to virtual box, and the one thing I noticed is that it wouldn't let me change the number of CPU's, it was locked at one, and grayed out, not letting me change anything, but I didn't think it would make any difference as to how it runs, so I kept it at one and moved on, and everytime it boots, and choose "graphical install" and then the same thing happens, and shows the error screen, and I'm pretty sure it has something to do about the number of CPU's it has control of. If you are wondering, I have an Intel Core 2 Quad CPU, whatever that is. That is all the information about the problem I have so far. Based off of the info I found on other websites, a possible solution would be to boot it into a older kernel version, but I couldn't find any earlier versions of it anywhere, so I can't do that. I am a noob to this kind of stuff. The only operating system I have ever used it Windows. (10, XP, Vista, and 7.) Please help!!!

  3. So I tried to install the 32-bit version of Kali, b/c I don't have the 64 bit version…and I got the following msg "This kernel requires the following features not present on the CPU: pae Unable to boot – please use a kernel appropriate for your cpu"
    I don't know what this means at all….need help.
