  1. Everything is great until I reach step 11 where I have to hit the little disk icon and select the Kali Linux file. I didn’t see the file that I had created in step 3.

  2. Hi Ali,
    Thank you for the instructions. When I get to the menu option to select Graphical install, I am unable to scroll down to that option. Pressing the down key only gets me as far as the second option in the list (Live (amd64 failsafe) – as if it has frozen. Clicking with a mouse doesn’t work either. (This is an ISO install on VirtualBox/Windows 10) Could you please assist? Thank you

  3. Hi Ali. I have methodically followed your instructions again, but still having the same issue, ie the window where I should select Graphical install doesn’t allow me to scroll down with my keys, or select it with my mouse. Any idea what the issue may be? Thanks again.
