Partition Disk – here you have option to choose how do u want to install your os. Here we will discuss in two option. 1St Use Entire Disk and 2nd Manually. Use Entire disk means os will create your whole hard disk in one partition and OS will install in this partition. And Manually means you can create a separate partition for your Kali Linux OS and install it on the separate partition. I recommend if you are advance user than play with manually otherwise go with ‘use entire disk’ but remember the meaning of it.
