Getting Kali Linux, or any other Linux distribution, up and running on your Mac can sometimes be problematic. Although things have gotten easier with some new tools. As a Macbook Pro user (mid 2014 model) I wanted to be able to use Kali Linux on my Macbook in a USB liveboot mode, with persistence. One primary reason for wanting to maintain persistence is that there is quite a bit of setup involved to get all the drivers working, and I didn’t want to have to go through all of that each time I booted into Linux. I tried many methods of getting things working, even following the instructions on the Kali Linux website didn’t work exactly. I ended up with a strange occurrence when rebooting that I had to select the windows partition for boot rather than the mac EFI. Below are my instructions on how I set up this live USB with persistence, it’s produced reliable results and hopefully it will do for you to.
The process was done using my Macbook Pro mid 2014 model, running OSX El Capitan. There’s a few things you will need in order to get started. • A USB stick with minimum of 8GB storage (I’m using a 16GB scan disk USB3.0 thumb drive) • Download the free software “ Mac Linux USB Loader” from here • Download the latest build of Kali Linux (I use the amd64 version) and keep the.iso file in your downloads folder STEP 1 • First we need to prepare the USB stick. We will use the MAC OSX native disk utility tool for this. Open the Disk utility tool, and select the correct USB device (in my case SanDisk Cruzer.) • Click on “ Erase” and choose the following options • Name – Kali Linux • Format – MS-DOS (FAT) • Scheme – Master Boot Record • Press the “ Erase” button. The Disk Utility will then run through it’s formatting process. When finished click on “D one“.
Jump to Making the drive bootable - Open 'syslinux/txt.cfg' from the USB drive with your. File=/preseed/ubuntu.seed boot=casper persistent.
You should now have a single clean partition on your USB drive as shown below. Now the USB disk has been prepared we can move onto the next step, which will be to setup the drive using the “ Mac Linux USB Loader“. STEP 2 • Open up the Mac Linux USB Loader software and select “ Create Live USB“. This will bring up a finder window, where you can navigate to your downloaded Kali Linux.iso disk image. Select the Kali Linux disk image that you downloaded earlier. • On the next screen you will see your USB thumb drive listed with he name “kali Linux” (if you named it that when formatting). Select this USB drive and click “ Next” • On this screen click on “ Begin Installation“.
Microsot outlook app for mac empty trash. • When you perform a search in Outlook, the search results don’t match the criteria that you set. • Blank lines appear in the Outlook message list or in Outlook contacts. • Outlook items don’t open, or the item that opens is not the item that you selected. • Outlook contact entries are not displayed correctly. • You can’t find information that you added to, such as a calendar event or a contact.
• Once this has completed, you should now find a directory structure on the USB disk like this:- /efi/boot inside the boot folder there will be a couple of.efi files and a “boot.iso” disk image. STEP 3 • There’s one final step we need to take in order to ensure that Kali Linux boots in persistence mode every time. We need to edit the enterprise configuration file. Open up the Mac Linux USB Loader again, and select the option “ Setup USB Device“.
• In the new window, select the Kali Linux USB drive from the left side. This is a list of the various available bootable USB drives. Once the correct drive is selected click on “ Edit Enterprise Configuration File“. This will open a text edit window with the configuration file.
You need to change the “ hostname” from “ka li” to “k ali persistence“. Save this file, and close. • Your USB bootable disk is now ready. Reboot your Macbook Pro while holding down the “alt / option” key. You will be presented with a boot option list, select the “EFID” boot option. This will present another menu where you can select the boot mode, and the available Linux Distributions. Kali Linux should then boot up and now you have a Linux Live session running on your machine.
