What operating system are you using? (I can see it is a Unix, but which one?).

@gnasher729 that depends where you live, and the liberality of the laws there.

Whether this is legal will depend on where you live, please check local laws.

It looks like oricle are under a lot of legal pressure from apple so they are not making it easy, however I suspect it is still possible you just need to find a site that apple's lawyers have not sat on forums.virtualbox.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=31104

comment Cannot install Kali linux
Answer to first part: yes kail is a gnu+linux distro, and so a Unix system. unix.stackexchange.com if for all Unixes, including Gnu+Linux. Answer to 2nd part. I have no idea.

I would suggest moving the question to unix.stackexchange.com but also adding some more detail to the end of the question, it is probably un-answerable as is.

comment More than 3.4 GB in windows 7?
@kimberly, although linus, the chief architect of the main kernel (Linux) used by ubuntu, has stated, using many swear words, what he thinks of PAE, the Linux kernel has one of the best implementations of PAE. Also PAE breaks drivers, unless recompiled, and in some cases fixed; As no one has the full source code for the NT kernel, including drivers, this is impossible (Note the same is true for 64 bit, but vendors where forced to rewrite drivers or users to throw away hardware). Also in ubuntu, you will just have to install the 64 bit or PAE kernel and reboot, to get what you want.

comment Increase maximum locked memory for unprivileged user
Note: ulimits only changes limits for current shell and its children. limits.conf will not affect existing processes. After making change, check using ulimits -a, from the shell that you will launch the program from.

What OS?, and can you amend answer, instead of writing amendments in comments. I don't want to read a page of comments to know what the question is.

Which OS are you using? MacOs, Gnu+Linux, Microsoft NT based or other.

comment Mounting OSX hard-drive on linux
Which Gnu+Linux are you using?, on Debian(and some others) you can go to /dev/disk/by-… these by directories categorise all disks that the OS finds by different keys. Such as id, guid, label, path. You should be able to find the partition using there no need for `fdisk or similar tools.

comment Using a product with Windows only drivers on Linux (Ubuntu)
Most device manufacturers do not support Linux. However some are standards compliant, others are supported by Linux. Some are not supported. Note the inversion in the direction of support.
