If someone can explain to me what I’m doing wrong, I’d appreciate it.
I am doing the unattended install (my first time ever) and what i’ve done was this:
Boot the VirtualBox pointed to the kali.iso and then select install, hit tab and modify the contents by adding
preseed/url=https://www.kali.org/dojo/preseed.cfg locale=en_US keymap=us hostname=host domain=domain.com
I hit enter and it boots up and goes along for awhile all “unattended” but when the installation comes to the root password…it halts. I checked the preseed.cfg on kali.org and it has a root password set to toor etc. But it just doesn’t go.
If i enter the password, the installation can progress a little more then comes to disk partitioning. Again it halts and needs my input. I checked the file on the website again and it indeed does provide auto-responses for this as well…but again, they don’t just auto insert.
I just had the same problem. Had a devil of a time figuring out how to get to the GRUB options. After finding this thread it was a piece of cake. Thank you very much! Installing this way was very cool! 🙂
