Ok. To rule out the host graphics driver: Could you change your host Xorg setup to use the VESA graphics driver? Edit the file /etc/X11/xorg.conf and add a section

  Section "Device"
        Identifier      "vesa"
        Driver          "vesa"
  EndSection

and add the line

  Device "vesa"

to the Screen section of that file. Then restart the X server to ensure the new configuration applies. Check in /var/log/Xorg.log.0 if the vesa driver is indeed used. Note that the graphics performance will be notably slower. Now try to start a VM. Still only a black window?
