Recently I got a new Alienware M17 which I have really enjoyed.😊 Currently I just have Windows 10 Home but I want to do a dual boot with Kali Linux. I have been having trouble setting this up lately. I will say what I did step by step and see if anyone knows what to do. First I created a disk partition I intend on using for kali than I I downloaded a Kali Linux iso file from their downloads page. After the kali iso had finished downloading I went and downloaded the Universal USB Installer. I plugged in my USB and began burning the kali iso to the USB. After I was finished with that I booted my computer from the USB and was greeted with the installation page for Kali Linux. I chose the graphic installer option and chose my language and region. Then when it got to the part when it was trying to mount the USB it said it was unable to do so. I had to abort the installation afterwards. I was thinking it may be a problem with my USB as I had already burned another iso (parrotsec OS) onto it and tried to burn the kali onto the USB regardless. Anyways I want to see if any of you have any advice for what I should do in order to successfully dual boot my laptop.
If you read my previous post you will already know that I have a new Alienware m17 and that I am trying to perform a dual boot on it. I have decide to use parrotsec os instead. There is one step that keeps on going wrong for me and I do not know why. I will say what steps I did and see if anyone here can help me. I started by downloading the parrotsec os ISO file (the one on the right). I then used etcher to burn the ISO onto a usb. When it finished it said that it had been successful. I then booted my computer from the usb and went through all of the installation steps like normal. When the system was installing (which took quite some time) it stopped at around 80% and said that the installation had failed . I had to abort the installation. No data was effected negatively by this or anything and my Windows 10 OS is still fine but I am still confused what happened. I was thik that my partition size for the installation may not have been big enough (it was 11.6 GB). Anyways if any of guys could give some advice it would be greatly appreciated .
