Not sure where I went wrong. I had Parrot OS several years ago (I don’t remember the version number) and did not have this issue when installing it. I have since done a fresh wipe of the same laptop and tried to reinstall the latest version. This is the error I keep receiving. I don’t think I’m doing anything differently than before but clearly I’m having problems. Any help is appreciated.


  • ParrotOS iso in use: 4.11.2 Security Edition MATE Desktop

  • Application used for flashing the iso: Rufus

try reinstalling the whole os again
