after loading gateway+workstation for the first time, only black screen appears..?

I’m an absolute newbie with linux and whonix. I appreciate your help so much as i know nobody to ask.
I made the whonix download and virtual box did implement first gateway and then workstation.
I started first gateway and then workstation. Then I only get a black screen. Nothing happens…?
i know from several tutorials, that there has to be kind of a wizard , who asks you to connect to the Tor network.
Why is the process stopping here? I cant go further…

Please, can anybody help me?

Welcome to Whonix forums and thank you for your question!

The VirtualBox kernel modules do not match this version of VirtualBox. The installation of VirtualBox was apparently not successful. Executing


may correct this. Make sure that you are not mixing builds of VirtualBox from different sources.

VirtualBox issue. Not Whonix issue.

Rebooted after installation of VirtualBox?

Properly install VirtualBox.

Try installing an operating system (not Whonix) in a not-Whonix virtual machine or downloading a regular VirtualBox ova unrelated to Whonix. If that works, Whonix would also work.

VirtualBox is produced by Not For basic running of VirtualBox can get better support from your distribution and as per Free Support for Whonix ™
