Hi, Ravan_back, and welcome to LQ.

Can I ask why you're trying to install Kali? If you've never used Linux before then you may well struggle as Kali is not designed for beginners. You should think about starting with something like Linux Mint - you should be able to obtain all the packages that are available for Kali in Mint too.

It is going to be difficult for people to support you with imprecise information such as that. We will have no idea what you have done and therefore will have less chance of resolving the problem.

If you do want to install Linux in VirtualBox then find a written guide on the web somewhere and follow the instructions. If you encounter any problems then you can post on LQ, refer to those instructions and show us exactly where you've encountered the problem.

In saying all that, perhaps there will be someone who can help you out with your specific problem. Have you tried Googling the exact error message (using double quotes)?

Hi.

If your learning to install that's cool, otherwise download it for VM... scroll: https://www.kali.org/downloads/

also be aware that kali is and never was designed for " new" users

for example the network is DISABLED by default
