1 : Bootable usb ( Rufus)
 2 : i created some free partition ( 50GB )
 3 : followed the Parrot os installing steps
4 : I end up at the installation process after the partitioning.

After it reaches like 4%, I get an error, telling me the following:

,Installation step failed
An installation step failed. You can try to run the failing item again from the menu, or skip it and choose something else. The failing step is: Install the system"

I don’t think the ISO is corrupt. Because it happens with different ISOs from different download sites, burned onto different mediums.

Too many variables that could cause to this error, I will list them which you need to check and try again following the tutorial

  • First of all ensure that you are trying to install the correct bit (32 , 64)
  • USB should be of the correct size 4gb is min 
  • The video you shared is of a dual boot , how about first trying to run a Live boot of Parrot  ? that way we can know the OS / USB is properly made bootable ?
  • Does it work in a VM ?
  • Always try to use the officially recommended tools while Rufus is a decent one use Etcher
Try with these it might work out .. because the error uptil now is very generic
let me know any changes
