Installation Kali-Linux

How I installed Kali-Linux on a Framework

  1. Prepare an usb for the installation:

  2. Prepeare the Framework for the installation:

    • boot the laptop
    • during the boot click on the F2-button to enter the bios-menu
    • open the security-tab
    • disable secure-boot
    • leave the bios-menu and save the settings by clicking the F10-button
    • power-off the laptop
  3. Start the installation process for Kali-Linux:

    • insert the usb-drive
    • open boot-manager by with the F12-button on the keyboard
    • choose to boot from your usb-drive
    • in the first menu choose “installation”
    • run the whole installation-process
    • reboot
    • install update through the terminal with
      sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade
    • reboot
  4. Start-up the system and install drivers:

    • open terminal
    • check the current drivers for issues
      • sudo dmesg
      • the issues are marked red
    • if the wifi-driver is missing
    • use the terminal to move the driver-file to the correct folder and reboot
      • sudo mv ~/Downloads/iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0-XX.ucode /lib/firmware
      • sudo reboot
  5. Update the system:

    • open the terminal
    • check for updates and install them
      • sudo apt update
      • sudo apt upgrade

general points:

  • With Linux-Kernel 5.16.0 I had to use iwlwifi-ty-a0-gf-a0-67.ucode as wifi-firmware.
  • If you encounter any issues please tell me. I try to keep the post updated.

But why? You shouldn’t run Kali on Bare Metal.

Why shouldn’t I run Kali on Bare Metal? I have specific use cases, where it’s easier to run it directly on the machine.

Many reasons, but if you have specific use cases, then go ahead I guess. I just assumed it was a 9 year old script kiddie writing it. Sorry to come across as demeaning if I did.

Detailed Linux installation guides are always welcome. Stickied!
