    Post Can't use VirtualBox to boot linux kali

    I am trying to create a VM with linux kali in it with no success, what i've done so far:
    • tried live-boot
    • installed first and tried booting second

    the scenario:
    • Main OS Windows 8 x64
    • VirtualBox 4.3.6
    • kali-linux-1.0.6-i386

    the problem:

    when booting, moments after this line appears:

    starting gnome display manager gdm-3

    my screen turns black and shows the loading cursor, after a while it passes to the arrow cursor with the screen remaining black. And it just stays like this.. I followed all the steps in:

    This gets me frustrated because everytime I tried to install any OS in a virtualization SW i can never get it to work straight. Has this ever happened to you ?

    thanks in advance.
