How to install Kali Linux from an External HArd Drive without a CD?


I have successfully booted Kali Linux on a USB3.0, 2TB Seagate External HArd Drive. It is asking me for a CD. I do not have one. Is there some way to install it without having a CD?
Thanks in advance.

Have you read the "Sticky" at the top of this forum? I don't think you have, so here it is: https://www.linuxquestions.org/quest...ad-4175614092/

Check the /etc/apt/sources.list file. If it references a CD, remark out that reference.
