ISO Files for Intel-based PCs

In order to run Kali “Live” from a USB drive on standard Windows and Macintosh PCs, you’ll need a Kali Linux bootable ISO image, in either 32-bit or 64-bit formats.

If you’re not sure of the architecture of the system you want to run Kali Linux on, on Linux or OS X, you can run the command

uname -m at the command line. If you get the response, “x86_64”, use the 64-bit ISO image (the one containing “amd64” in the file name); if you get “i386”, use the 32-bit image (the one containing “i386” in the file name). If you’re on a Windows system, the procedure for determining whether your system is 32- or 64-bit is detailed on Microsoft’s site.

The images are available both as directly downloaded “.iso” files or via torrent files.

VMware Images

If you want to run Kali Linux as a “guest” under VMware, Kali is available as a pre-built VMware virtual machine with VMware Tools already installed. The VMware image is available in a 64-bit (amd64), 32-bit (i686), and 32-bit PAE (i486) formats.

ARM Images

The hardware architectures of ARM-based devices vary considerably, so it is not possible to have a single image that will work across all of them. Pre-built Kali Linux images for the ARM architecture are available for the wide range of devices.
