Booting Kali From USB HDD - Raspberry Pi?


Recommended Posts

yea ive gotten that far. I have 2 partitions on HDD.

1 for the file system /dev/sdb1 (950GB) and another for the Linux swap /dev/sdb2 (15GB).

the Rpi image of Kali doesn't have a /boot/conifg.txt so ive been trying every tutorial ive seen online

and haven't had any luck.

Depending on how the RPi boots, you might have to keep the main files on the hard-drive, with the SD card holding the bootloader, using the rest as swap.

Did you create those partitions by hand, or did you do something like:

dd if=kali-pi.img of=/dev/sdb bs=512k

Where sdb is your usb hdd.

Alright I'm waiting on /dev/sdb1 (HDD Partition) to finish the resize2fs function and fill the entire HDD with the Kali file system and then all I have left is to work on the fstab & to edit the boot cmdline.txt.. I know the RPi Kali image doesn't have a working cmdline.txt so can anyone point me in the right direction with info on making this work?
