I have a LiveUSB of Linux Kali-mini, I am able to boot it up but how do I run it without installing it to my machine (like I am able to do on lubuntu), I can't find an option for it.

The only options available to me are: -Install -Advanced options > -Help -Install with speech synthesis

  • When it boots up, there should be an option for "Digital Forensics" or something like that... I believe that lets you use it without installing it to the machine...

  • @Interesting... Afraid I don't have that option, just to install with or without voice synthesiser

Just out of curiosity, are you sure the ISO that you have is a live one?

Check here once.

  • I didn't realise I had to download a specific live version, I just downloaded the ISO from the download page

  • Kali mini simply doesn't have the options in the boot menu that the full version does, I'll have to download the full version (which will take about 15 hours)
