I want to boot Kali Linux with my Raspberry Pi. I have downloaded ISO file for Raspberry from this site. When I power on Raspberry, the LCD screen just shows "No Signal".

HDMI cable is connected - I have booted Ubuntu Mate and it worked.

  • Which one did you download? "Kali Linux RaspberryPi 2, 3 and 4" or "Kali Linux RaspberryPi 2 (v1.2), 3 and 4 64-Bit"?

  • Which HDMI you have tested? "HDMI 0" or "HDMI 1"? -- Change the config.txt to hdmi_force_hotplug=1.

It would be the config.txt on your raspberry pi's /boot partition:

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

#hdmi_force_hotplug=1

As it said themself, uncomment this line would solve your problem.

# uncomment if hdmi display is not detected and composite is being output

hdmi_force_hotplug=1  

In addition, check this link out.

Adding to M. Rostami's question, make sure your cable is firmly connected to your monitor. Also, make sure to check the screen resolution that was set from raspi-config.
