How to Install Kali Linux On VMWare
Step #1. Download Kali Linux
You would need to download kali Linux from the official website of Kali Linux by going here. You can download a 32-bit or 64-bit kali Linux depending upon the capability of your computer.
Download 64-bit kali Linux only if you are sure that your computer is 64-bit otherwise go for 32-bit which will work on both.
You can use Torrent to download the Kali Linux from the official site.
If you don’t have a torrent client you can always use normal download but the torrent download is faster in downloading. (Make sure you download the latest version of the Kali Linux).
