I am trying to complete an install for Kali 2021 Beta. I have created the VM but when I click start I get a process successful message but it doesn't change to running status. Should we be able to VNC into this VM after starting to complete the boot changes you mention above? In other words how do I get to the shell you mention?

Hi Steve:

On the nano, there is a delay after clicking on start for antMan to show running (but it should show up after few seconds).

Yes, you will need to connect  to the antlet by click on Console button near the antlet.

After that, you can follow the instructions above to add the boot options.

Daniel, thanks for the response. I am not getting the console button as my vm never shows the running state. I have tried rebooting the Antsle and still the machine never shows running although the Process Successful notification comes up briefly. Any suggestions on troubleshooting?

I just tried installing another Antlet (Unbuntu) with the same result. Pretty sure this means there is an issue with the nano, not the Kali antlet. I will pursue this through support. Thanks for your responses.
