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:
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
mount -t vfat /dev/sda1 /cdrom,
cd into the /cdrom directory and do an
ls to see if the files are there. Then press ALT–F1 to go back, continue and re-select “detect CDROM”
