boot kali and mint

Post by catrunner75 »

I want to create a dual boot mint and kali. ive read thru some stuff and while i know its safer to run kali in a VM or even bootable usb, the spped wont be there as well as the ability to do many of the network pen testing? ive already got windows 10 partitioned, im not too sure i can get another OS in, and im not sure how to evaluate what i have for RAM and disk space. anyone want to talk to me about this?

OK, I'm confused - you mentioned a dual-boot with Mint and Kali, but then describe partitioning for Windows. Is this really going to be a triple-boot?

@catrunner75: While I have no idea how easy it would be to set persistence for a Kali ISO, if I was you I'd take a look at Ventoy (https://www.ventoy.net/en/doc_start.html). YMMV, though. :|

My comment was more about figuring out the specific deeper details of doing that exact setup related to dual(triple) boot kali and mint with possibly Windows10. Creating a bootable iso is easy and to me didn't seem to be an issue of the topic.

But maybe using kali with persistence is a more interesting solution, and then the other stuff doesn't really matter.

I assume pnin meant to speak to the OP, catrunner75, and not zcot.

Otherwise, the post does read like it's simply spamming a product. A free one, yes. But still comes across as spammy.

You're right, my bad. Fixed.

And advocacy isn't spamming. It took me years to find such an easy to setup multiboot program and I have tested many, believe me.

I offered an on-topic clue and got called a spammer. What did you bring to the table in the present situation? Take it as you wish...

As I said, it did come across as spammy when it was directed to the wrong person.

Just like you now say you were called a spammer, which you weren't by me, words on a page can easily be misinterpreted.

And as a moderator, watching for spam is one of my duties. Hence my comment giving you the opportunity to clear the air. That's what I brought to the table.

All is good here. Carry on. :D

Great then. 8)

As a moderator on a software forum, I can sympathize; it's just that I haven't had the warmest welcome here, since in my few posts I got called out twice already by high rank users -- instead of just being ignored, which would be the more expected outcome.
