That way, you can hop from one computer to the next and still be able to boot up Kali from the BIOS or the startup manager. In this episode of Cyber Weapons Lab, we’ll show you how to install Kali Live on a USB drive with Etcher, adjust your boot options in the BIOS utility (yours may be a different process depending on your computer and OS), boot into Kali with or without persistence, and configure Kali for 2021.
