I have a Macbook Pro (Retina, 15-inch, Mid 2015) with macOS Sierra.

For the installation, I have followed this guide: Installing dual boot Sierra and Kali-Linux but at the end, when I go to part 3 I see only the Mac Hardisk and no other available selection.

Someone have any solution?

  • Is there a Kali (or other) image installed on the stick? – nohillside Dec 17 '16 at 8:45
  • Under Part 2 of those directions it omitted the step of coping the efi folder to the root of the Kali Linux partition on the USB drive, so I added it as step 8 under Part 2. Did you copy the efi folder to the root of the Kali Linux partition on the USB drive? – user3439894 Dec 17 '16 at 9:54
  • @user3439894 hi, no, I copied in when he was not present in the guide. tomorrow I try again, hoping that this time functions. – Mike Dec 19 '16 at 14:32
  • @user3439894 hello, I managed to get it going :); But I noticed that the "persistence" seems to not work; in fact trying (as indicated by the guide) to change the background to see if it keeps on reboot back to being the same default. – Mike Dec 20 '16 at 9:34
  • First of all, I'm not the author of the guide you used and only added the obviously missing step in Part 2 and cannot vouch for any of it as I've not tried it. If I was going to try a Kali Live USB with Persistence I'd follow the official documentation, Making a Kali Bootable USB Drive & Kali Linux Live USB Persistence and certainly wouldn't be downloading a binary from some unknown user and implementing it from the guide you linked to in your question! – user3439894 Dec 20 '16 at 10:39

I used the guide on Kali's official website for me, which is here: http://docs.kali.org/installation/kali-linux-dual-boot-on-mac-hardware. I to have a MacBook Pro Retina running OS Sierra, I hope that will help your installation.
