An installation step failed. You can try to run the failing item again from the menu, or skip it and choose something else. The failing step is: Install the system


I've downloaded kali-linux-2016.2-amd64.iso torrent from Kali Linux's official website www.kali.org/downloads/

I've created Virtual machine by selecting Linux > Debian 8.x 64-Bit

I Gave Virtual Machine 30.00 GB Hard drive space and 2.00 GB Ram.

  1. Booted up the iso and selected Graphical Install
  2. After Completing few step then I came up to Partition Disks step.
  3. I've selected "Guided - use entire disk" then clicked continue.
  4. Then I select the Hard disk and clicked continue
  5. In Partitioning scheme I've selected All files in one partition (recommended for new users)
  6. Then the following message came:

    The following partitions are going to be formatted:
    
     partition #1 of SCSI3 (0,0,0) (sda) as ext4
     partition #5 of SCSI3 (0,0,0) (sda) as swap
    
     write changes to disks?
     yes or no

    I selected yes and clicked continue and installation was going well.

  7. But after a few moments Kali Linux installation stuck and showed me an error as stated below:

    An installation step failed. You can try to run the failing item again from the menu, or skip it and choose something else.
    The failing step is: Install the system

    See the screenshot: http://i.imgur.com/GPklG37.png

If I click continue then after a while the error reappears. I tried a lot of time to install but failed everytime, I seriously need help.

My System:

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5 CPU M430 @2.27GHz Ram: 8.00 GB Graphics: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470 OS: Windows 7 Home Premium, 64-bit 6.1.7601, Service Pack 1

My VMware:

Version: 12.1.0 build-3272444 (64Bit)

I had the same problem, and I have fixed it by increasing the space for the hard drive. by default you have 8 GB, increase it to 30 GB. and continue with the instalation.



I faced exactly the same predicament as your's and extensive search on internet did not yield any straight-forward answer.

My host OS level(Windows 7), VMWare version and Kali linux version & settings for Kali install attempt are similar to yours with the exception - that I did chose separate partition for /home, /var & /temp - I chose varying disk capacity size which you chose as 30G

While trying repeatedly to install with differing settings I noticed following pattern: - for 8G disk capacity setting the install step failed after approx. 20% completion - for 20G disk capacity setting the install step failed after approx. 40% completion - for 40G disk capacity setting the install step failed after approx. 80% completion

Finally the install step succeeded with 60G disk capacity value. So try increasing your disk capacity and give it a shot!
