  3. Hey,
    i’ve installed BT5 r3 on a USB, and then continued with this options:
    **The default mode “backtrack text default mode”
    ****And then i opened “install BT? icon” on the desktop to start installing wizard till i stopped at “prepare disk space” window wizard with 2 options:
    This computer has Win7 (loader) on it.
    where do you want to put backtrack live?
    1- erase and use entire disk 320GB
    2- specify partition manually
    so any ideas please?

    (because i saw many tutorial videos on how installing BT5 live on a USB device they are selecting option No. 1 Erase option, so i stopped at that point for searching for more information about that options)

    when i entered the command airodump-ng it dose not showing any wifi networks to crack[wpa/wpa2/wep/open] nothing.what should i do now.please let me know sir

    i sending the snapshots of my problem and my system information.

  19. Moniter mode won’t start in virtual machine because backtrack needs full control of your network adapter and that privilege is not given to backtrack in Virtual machines. So If you want to hack wifi then make a Live backtrack USB and run it on your machine… And then try hacking wifi. 100% you will be able to ! :)
