    Well, if you don’t want to be (and stay) a script kiddie, you should know some basics in networking, programming and operating systems.
    e.g. you cant get a professional in SQL injection if you dont know SQL.

    I’d also recommend to learn some basics in networking and gain some experience with windows and linux. However, you surely can also start learning penetration testing.. A good idea to start is to download kali and metasploitable as virtual machines. Kali offers many tools preinstalled, metasploitable is a vulnerable machine.

    sir i have dwnloaded kali frm the official site but wen i run on vm box it says

    “this kernel requires an x86-64 CPU,but only detected an i686 CPU,
    unable to use please use a kernel appropriate for your CPU”

    wat to do

    In the BIOS is a virtualization setting which should be enabled to run 64 Bit Machines. However, I saw in a forum post that 86x bit machine would run anyway

    That’s doesn’t matter, you have to enable Intel Virtualization Technology in the BIOS Settings.
    Here is a guide how you can enable it(http://www.sysprobs.com/disable-enable-virtualization-technology-bios)
    You have to enter a key (on most computers F2 but it depends) when you see the boot screen from the manufacturer.

    ^That. Also, if the pre-built VM isn’t working for you, just download the ISO and build the virtual machine yourself.

    The result would be the same. A VM shares the ressources with the physical system, this needs to be enabled first.

    @newboy, take a look at the two links below which seem to apply to your situation. The two recommendations listed below are taken from the second link. It sounds like you have enabled #1, but you might need to verify #2 — you have to tell VirtualBox that you are installing a 64-bit OS. The first link has a good picture of this step during installation.

    1) 64-bit guests need hardware-virtualzation enabled in the hosts bios.
    2) when creating the 64-bit guest you must select 64-bit in General -> Basic -> version.
