    Hey everyone, I am a total noob, although I’ve been using PC’s for 26 years, I’ve let things slide and getting back into it. Please be patient with me, hopefully I pick up on things but I may initially have a few questions to get me started. I am working on the Chapter 1 exercise and I’ve installed Kali on Windows 10 app. Do I need to install any of the Offensive Security downloads from https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vm-vmware-virtualbox-hyperv-image-download/ ?

    I want to complete the activity and guessing I can use the app on Windows 10 to create a new VM? Or is this done with Virtual Box?

    Thanks in advance!

    I’ve also got the free trial for Microsoft Azure for 12 months, but not sure if I should stay with that or is there another free option? I noticed another post about this suggesting ClearVM but would like to make sure if there’s a better option. Thanks again.

    If you have Mircosoft Pro edition, then you can use Hyper-V.

    Hi Everyone, I am trying to boot up a Windows 10 Home laptop from a Kali Linux SD card that I made as per the instructions in the the exercise. Has any one of you been successful at booting from a SD card loaded with a Kali Linux image on a Windows 10 PC? Thanks in advance. ( PS: I have a preference for an SD card as opposed to a USB stick because I find it easier to carry around)
