hello guys ,
i recently installed kali linux from an ISO and it was working perfectly fine ...
i have a windows 10 1903 ... 64bit ... with vbox 6.0 ... today i was turning the kali on suddenly it didnt boot into the GUI ... the vbox windows starts maximizing and resizing on its own a few times ... than it gets stuck on a black screen with a cursor blinking ... i have no idea what could cause ... last thing i was trying to do was trying to install powershell in kali ...
i also have vbox guest additions installed.
any help please ?
P.S : i have a snapshot but its an old one ... i need to fix this one if possible ...
thank you

Well, here's an idea, you might have broken your guest by doing something to your guest.

In any event, we need to see a complete VBox.log, from a complete VM run, where the problem occurs:
  • Start the VM from cold-boot (not from a paused or saved state) / Observe problem / Shutdown the VM (force close it if you have to).
  • With the VM completely shut down (not paused or saved), right-click on the VM in the VirtualBox Manager and select "Show Log".
  • Save only the first "VBox.log", ZIP it and attach it to your response. See the "Upload attachment" tab below the reply form.
