Making a Kali Bootable USB Drive/02. Kali Linux Live /Making a Kali Bootable USB Drive 02. Kali Linux LiveOur favorite way, and the fastest method, for getting up and running with Kali Linux is to run it “live” from a USB drive. This method has several advantages:It’s non-destructive — it makes no changes to the host system’s hard drive or installed OS, and to go back to normal operations, you simply remove the “Kali Live” USB drive and restart the system.It’s portable — you can carry Kali Linux in your pocket and have it running in minutes on an available systemIt’s customizable — you can roll your own custom Kali Linux ISO image and put it onto a USB drive using the same proceduresIt’s potentially persistent — with a bit of extra effort, you can configure your Kali Linux “live” USB drive to have persistent storage, so the data you collect is saved across rebootsIn order to do this, we first need to create a bootable USB drive which has been set up from an ISO image of Kali Linux.
