How much RAM did you allocate? It probably needs more, the default settings aren't enough to boot.

Hello,

Haven't installed Kali...

But the blinking cursor in the top left is usually a sign that you did not correctly install the grub bootmanager.

To add to what Wil already mentioned:
Blinking cursor - topleft of the screen - in my experience that very likely means that no partition is set to bootable (active) with MBR-firmware
That often can be fixed with a simple fdisk-command - boot to LiveCD next time and check partition-flags
