There is a bit of a back story here so please hold the snickering till the end smile.png I also preface this with Im by no means a linux expert but Im learning and well we all have to start some where right.

  1. Installed i386 Gnome. fully encrypted on its own usb. Wouldn't boot found a previous post with the issue and used this fix.

    cryptsetup luksOpen /dev/sda5 sda1_crypt
    (enter password)
    lvm vgchange -ay
    exit

    Also edited the crypttab file and ran

    update-initramfs -u

    And here is the like for anyone who has issues booting encrypted.

    Now at this point every thing is working great. Till I realize I havnt restarted in like a month. No big deal shut down for the night and came back wanted to get back to playing around...

    Feel free to begin heckling.

    I remembered my encrypted password no problem.
    My root password for the life of my I couldn't remember. I tried no joke several hundred times.
    Looking back on the situation I should of just booted the live CD and mounted the usb and fixed the password issue (not sure how but im sure a little googling could of produced an answer)

    Awwwwww yet I didnt. I thought might as well re-install Kali. The idea was I installed the 32 bit version I have a 64 bit this seems like the right time to fix this.
    The disk wipe failed due to I believe it was a I/O error.

    I moved the USB to the desktop and tried to wipe it and write "0's" and that failed used EaseUS partition Mgr, Windows disk Manager. Moved to a live CD (bootit bare metal) partition manager to try to format it or to wipe it. Again failed. I brought it back to a Kali live CD tried to run

    Disk doesnt pull up.
