I'm trying to install Kali Linux dual boot with windows 8.1. During installation, only two partitiones: enter image description here while I have 3 different partitions enter image description here . Please help.


I guess you have GPT table and Kali can't manage them while installation. If you use parted /dev/sda print you'd see all of your partitions.

To fix it, you should wait Kali fixes its installer (or maybe there are some patch/tricks available, I don't know Kali)

  • I'm using Graphical Installation. Is there any other way? – nAiN Apr 19 '15 at 5:38
  • @nAiN As I can see on the net, some people did the installation with GPT tables, but it's tricky and risky for your Windows installation. There are many things you have to do manually and may not work in your case... – apaul Apr 19 '15 at 8:37
  • What should I do then? – nAiN Apr 20 '15 at 6:08
  • Depends on your needs. If it's only for testing purpose, I would install VirtualBox on your Windows then install Kali inside it as a guest. – apaul Apr 20 '15 at 6:37
