Of course I'm no authority on the matter, but I certainly feel that it would be helpful to post new questions as separate topics. This makes them easier for others to find (both now and in the future), while also keeping the topics relevent to the sub-forum they are in.

As for adding "SOLVED" to the topic name, I personally wouldn't, it would be obvious that the problem is solved by simply looking at the end of the discussion. It really comes down to personal preference though, I can't imagine anyone complaining either way.

I haven't really done much with backup and restore (I usually run HDD Installations), but you should be able to set the backup location with the tool in the DSL menu under "System>Backup/Restore". You may need to add "restore=sda1" to the end of the "kernel" line in the menu.lst entry. More info can be found on the Wiki page. (http://www.damnsmalllinux.org/wiki/persistence.html)

Repair Kali Boot after installing a new OS ex: Windows

    hello guys thanks for instructing through the boot-process repair, I wasnt unable to repair my boot for a long-time, and because I have a kali using my USB for boot, it doesnt come with grub, so to fix the boot process it should be like:
    apt-get install grub
    mount /dev/sda3 /mnt
    mount --bind /dev /mnt/dev
    mount --bind /dev/pts /mnt/dev/pts
    mount --bind /proc /mnt/proc
    mount --bind /sys /mnt/sys
    chroot /mnt
    grub-install /dev/sda

    and now reboot, thats it,
    Thanks again.
    P.S is there a way without using apt-get install grub?
