How to Fix ‘Failed to Detect and Mount CD-ROM’ Problem When Installing Kali Linux

Solution 2 : You could resolve the error by repeating the steps :

Run the installer.

Open a shell (ALT +F2).

Create the directory cdrom directly on the root of the file system:

mkdir /cdrom

Note : If you got problems making the directory /cdrom, disable the CD-rom player in BIOS or disconnect the cable

Mount the USB as if it is a CD-ROM:

mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /cdrom

Where sda1 is your USB device. (check your usb by typing blkid command first in shell)

You could carry on installation now

After executing mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /cdromcd into the /cdrom directory and do an ls to see if the files are there. Then press ALTF1 to go back, continue and re-select “detect CDROM”
