Black Screen Installing CentOS 7 on VirtualBox

I noticed something that was irritating me this morning.  The screen would go black after I chose to install CentOS 7 on VirtualBox.  What you can do is choose Troubleshooting in the startup of the installer. Then choose Basic graphical install, this seems to get around the problem.

Hope this helps somebody!
