VMware Fusion 12, macOS 10.15.7 ,Kali Linux VM.

I can get into the grub and boot menu.

But when I choose the core 5.8.

I will get black screen, and only a cursor.

I can normally get into system with core5.4.

But KaliLinux already close the support for linux-header-5.4.

How to boot with core 5.8

Are you trying to build it from scratch?  if you download the pre-built VM's, they just work.

I'm having this same problem, with both an existing Kali VM I had that worked under Fusion 11, and with the latest prebuilt VMware image downloaded from https://www.offensive-security.com/kali-linux-vm-vmware-virtualbox-image-download/
