Hi

allow Kali Linux to automatically partition the  free space  and increase your GB space. Please look at the link and search for 'partition'

The maximum size you allowed is too small. If you allow larger, it will only use the space required (do not pre-allocate). Perhaps try again with a 40 or 50 GB maximum machine file size.

Which attached picture? Kali should fit nicely to a 10GB disk.

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

I deleted the virtual machine and created one with 50GB hard drive.
i still got lots of partitions like the previous photo. and all are 512 B.
when i chose any of them and click continue i get the attached screen shot. probably space is too small (Note: i chose previously USE ENTIRE HARD DISK)
i am not sure why i am having about a 100 partition with 512B each !!

Please make screenshots and upload them.

The large number of partitions is probably a Kali problem and not a VMware problem. I assume you are using a new version of VMware.

OK i fixed it.
VMware did not identify Kali Linux installation, and i had to chose linux x64 installation.
now i chose Fedora x64. and all what i had to do is rename it from Fedora to Kali.
it created the virtual machine with the 50GB hard drive :)
the installation started just fine.

Thank you all for trying to assist
