Can anyone tell me what im doing wrong?

  • Which version of VirtualBox are you using? Have you confirmed the ISO you downloaded isn't corrupted? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 26 '15 at 20:23
  • @Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 im using version: Version 5.0.8 r103449 and i assume that the file is not corrupt when its from their offical website? – Marc Rasmussen Oct 26 '15 at 20:24
  • Doesn't mean it didn't get corrupted while downloading it, that's why they give you the SHA1Sum hash for each file -- so you can use it to ensure the hash of your download matches, ensuring the file isn't corrupted. Check your hashes, and/or download the file again. Also, are you using a 64-bit host OS? – Ƭᴇcʜιᴇ007 Oct 26 '15 at 20:30

Sounds like the .iso has a problem.

However, Kali seems to have problems when trying to install onto Virtual Box/VMWare using the straight .iso file.

Download a VM ISO Here and try it again.
