Graphical install if you wanna install it..
Live 686-pae if you wanna run it from usb... really slow

if i use "live USB persistence" ,every time i boot kali i have to change boot order HDD to USB and USB to HDD .

I have it setup so that my bios is locked and to boot to kali i have to click the escape key on boot, otherwise it will boot to windows automatically. Its a pretty good setup. Plan on upgrading to kali 2.0 soon though

Regarding this matter, is there any significative issues or conditions of using a "live USB persistence" or a HDD instalation?

Something like speed or losing files... Or something else?
