I have the following setup
Dell Precision 7520 With Windows 10 Version 2004 (OS build 19041.508)
I downloaded the Whonix XFCE ova file. I checked the sha512 and the gpg signature, all shows as good.
I imported the ova into Virtualbox, but when I start the gateway I get a “A critical error has occurred while running the virtual machine.” (see image below)
I proceeded to download the Whonix CLI ova and imported that. Both CLI VM’s startup with no problems and whonixcheck show all is good.
I then tried the start the XFCE-workstation with the CLI-Gateway, but the XFCE-workstation box also gets the error screen.
It basically boots, shows the grub screen, then proceed into the OS up to the second line " initiating ramdrive", after this the screen blanks for up to 1 minute and then Virtualbox presents the image below.
screenshot not excepted in forum post
I’ve tried all the options on the “black-screen” issue page with no success.
Rebooted my laptop with nothing but Virtualbox started, no success.
Is this a known issue? how can I resolve it? I can provide the log files, if there is a way to upload it.
