I have a bootable USB drive with Tails and Kali Linux on it, among others. Kali boots fine.

However when I try to load Tails, it manages to get past the Tails loading screen but then the Kali logo appears and freezes, making me reboot. It comes to a screen that looks like this


However instead of "kali" it says "debian". Any ideas what's wrong?

  • were you able to boot both of these from the same USB drive?

Sharing an USB stick with another OS is not supported with Tails. There is a high risk that any other partition, or even Tails itself gets damaged.
