    Blank Screen on boot issue


    I've been using Kali Linux for only a month or two now off a virtualbox VM, and recently I have encountered an issue where I can't boot the machine past the grub.The issue started when I saw a notification appear on my Kali that said I'd run out of space. Weird considering all I had on there were some wordlists. But next time I tried to start my kali it just presented a black screen wit hflashing cursor. On further inspection through the recovery grub I saw the only "Major" thing that seemed to be wrong was kali saying it couldnt start because it didn't have enough space. I tried resizeing my virtual harddrive through cmd, but that didnt seem to work. I also added a pretty massive new virtual hardrive to the VM under its SATA controller, but still the problem arises. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    Did you actually repartition the hard drive from within Linux ? Or just added it under VirtualBox ?

    Yep, I had. Although I've now fixed the problem by using VMware instead...May be a VB issue, I don't know.
