Kali Linux Virtual Box 2019

Select recommended RAM memory, it will depend upon your capacity, in my case I will have 4GB assigned to Kali

Create a virtual Disk to store the information of your Virtual Machine

Select the size if your VDI disk, usually for Kali Linux you do not required more than 30GB, it depends about the amount of scripts and files you use.



Go to Settings to configure ISO and Graphics Memory and processor



Go to Storage, select “Controller IDE”, and then Choose Virtual Optical Disk File

After all this configuration, select OK and then start the VM.


You will see that it will open a new window with the VM inside, after that we have to SELECT “Graphic Install”

SELECT your proffered language.


ENTER the host name for your VM and follow the wizard configuration

AFTER this steps you will be able to see your Kali Desktop

Happy Hacking!
