Do you mean "Kali Linux drivers" and "HP"?

You should think a bit about whether you need Kali, which is actually a highly specialised distro used by professionals for penetration testing. Please read this sticky before proceeding:

Kali is based on Debian. So, whatever you are looking for, Debian drives or Debian drivers should work. In case you mean HP, how about https://wiki.debian.org/InstallingDebianOn/HP?

Or are you after laptops from the Philippines?

And the OP is really ready for Kali when they can't even spell "HP" properly berndbausch ? You do understand that you're not actually helping them if they don't have a clue what they are doing to begin with ?

Another lamb to the slaughter... :rolleyes:

Wow, great start! You might explain your intentions. If you are wanting to study computer forensics/ penetration testing you are going to have to be familiar with the Linux operating system, actually should be experienced at using it. If you don't have experience with Linux I doubt you will learn much from trying to install/use Kali. The best source of information on Kali is the Kali site which has extensive documentation. Putting it on a usb would probably be the least risky and that is explained below. If you don't understand the instructions on the site, just stop.

https://docs.kali.org/downloading/ka...ve-usb-install

You will need a lot more detail as it isn't clear to us at what point you are, do you have it downloaded and installed and are looking for drivers for something specific, what? Before going any further, read the Kali documentation at the link below which does not recommend using it if you are not experienced.

The keyboard on the ipad where I am writing this sometimes wrecks my spelling in unexpected ways. Many computer enthusiasts have problems with social interaction. Some are autistic.

Thus, I make no assumptions about peopleís computer skills based on their spelling, ability to ask questions and (lack of) attention to detail. I try to help them by clarifying the questions and pointing them to possible resources. Sometimes pointing out how to ask better questions.

sounds like my dyslexic typing fingers.

Was spelling the only thing I said ? Don't think it was.

By the very question it would be obvious to most that they don't have a high skill set, at the very least, not at a "Kali level" so to speak. Would you be asking such a question with your skills? Methinks not.

Look berndbausch, I'll be the last person to knock you for wanting to help, but for someone that very, very likely does not understand what they are doing to begin with; it's just not helping them. Personally, I like to try and gauge where their skill level is at, and target my replies so they are hopefully setup for success, and not failure.

I do, I absolutely do, because it's not just about computing prowess but about mindset, attitude and determination. Browsers these days have built-in spell checkers and there are plenty of people with autism/social awkwardness who thrive on the internet. I think what you're proposing is noble, but ultimately counter-productive. This is one of those instances where, for me, gut-feeling trumps rationalisation. To me the OP is just lazy and inexperienced. Add this to the fact that he clearly does not need to use Kali and the topic shows itself as another one of those help requests that just wastes everyone's time. I think trying to help such posters is actually debilitating to the Linux community rather than helpful. They should be politely dissuaded and pointed in a more appropriate direction, and additionally given advice on how to post and research properly.

You say they are clueless, true. Based on their spelling.

The OPís question is indeed lousy, and lazy, and I would not ask anything like that. Perhaps because I am older than the OP.
