i installed whonix on march and everything went great,
so i was probably on VB 6.1.4 and whatever whonix version that was at that time.
since then I’ve updated VB a few times and if i recall correctly 6.1.6 and 6.1.8 worked fine.
not sure where and why every thing started braking;was it the new Distro upgrade or VB but i had things like a black screen on the gateway and the workstation could not load at all after the boot screen(grub menu?).
any how after trying a few VB box versions with no solution,i deleted the VMs,uninstalled VB,rebooted the windows PC and installed the recommended 6.1.6 VB and downloaded the latest whonix ver.
now what i get is a black screen on the gateway but it’s still functional and the the workstation is blue but without the mouse figure.but still works.
not sure what went wrong,but by browsing i saw it was common on many distros and had many solutions and i also checked the whonix wiki about the black screen but it didn’t work for me.
fortunately now every thing seems to work but i got sometimes some hick-ups like the gateway is black and not functional(no taskbar) and other weird stuff.
