I have tried not using the graphical, install, then when everything failed at the end and I was presented with the option to Install the GRUB boot loader, it said an installation step failed again.

Suggestions?

Does this option come up with a graphical installation only? I saw on another bug post to not use the graphical install. Never saw this option using VirtualBox.

Went to:
1. https://www.kali.org/downloads/ ......... downloaded the Kali Linux 64-Bit (Installer) version 2020.3 (3.7GB); tried installing, no go (failed).

2. https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vm-vmware-virtualbox-image-download/#1572305786534-030ce714-cc3b .... downloaded the Kali Linux VirtualBox 64-Bit installer. Tried using this. Almost loaded up; error message stated I needed to disable the USB 2.0 controller. Did. Still "Aborted" after trying to load.

Error message for reporting attached.

* Never saw this option (from previous note) means, the screenshot you're showing did not come up for me.
