Building a Kali Linux ISO for Older i386 Architecture
The Kali Linux i386 ISO has PAE enabled. If you require a default kernel for older hardware with PAE disabled, you will need to rebuild a Kali Linux ISO.
The rebuilding process is much the same as described above, except that the686-pae parameter that needs to be changed to 686 in auto/config as follows. First, install the prerequisites.
apt install git live-build cdebootstrap debootstrap
git clone git://git.kali.org/live-build-config.git
Next, make the change in auto/config for the appropriate architecture:
sed -i ‘s/686-pae/686/g’ auto/config
Finally, run your build.
./build.sh –distribution kali-rolling –arch i386
