    I downloaded Kali from a torrent and put it into a virtual machine. I am unable to verify the checksum.
    I am assuming that since Windows is the OS that my VMware is installed on, I need to check the checksum through Windows instead of the Linux Vm. I have tried using powershell and it can’t recognize the name. The instructions appear to only be written for Linux, but I don’t really know for sure, they are confusing. Please Help.

    Hello R, to perform the ISO verification of kali linux, you can do it in any debian distro, since these systems come with the wget and gpg tools that we need for the check sum, greetings.

    In windows I think you can do the same procedure, but you should check if your system complies with these tools.
