Summary0003833: Problem with the installation Kali on Pen Drive booting a macbook 2011
DescriptionHi devs,

I'm trying to install Kali 2016.2 on a 8GB pen drive to boot a MacBook Pro 2011 version.
I've followed the instructions on the kali documentations for mac installation, but when I boot the notebook and choose the kali boot option, the system freeze on the boot screen.
So, I've tried to install the iso image using the Mac Linux USB Loader.
On this way, I can boot, but the Installation Screen is different (I'll put a image in attachments).
Choose the options, I can use kali, but I can't put it on Persistence Mode too (I've followed too many tutorials in the internet to do it, using GParted and commands in the terminal).

Then I was trying to use airodump command, but I've realized that It wasn't showing the clients connected to the network I was monitoring.

I think this problem with airodump is related to the installation.

Hope you can help me,

Steps To Reproduce- Download ISO image from kali.org;
- Create a bootable Pen Drive;
- Enter in boot mode (using MacBook 2011 version) and choose the kali boot

There is some workaround to use this?

I'm sorry but it's next to impossible for us to debug your issue without having the same hardware.

You might want to try if you are able to boot pristine Debian images... maybe you have one of those old MAC that need special care. Debian produces this image for those computers:

We don't have anything equivalent. We rely on UEFI boot for newer MAC.
