KVM console black until I switch to ttyXY with ctrl+alt+fXY

after conversion of LXC to KVM which works, i have black screen / VNC console until I switch to tty1 with ctrl+alt+f1.
Any ideas how to fix this, so that KVM 16.04 ubuntu based will start at tty1?

I also just noticed, that when I use console for text input, it does not work. Picture shows it (these F F F show up):

Any ideas? Maybe I have to change grub output or something? Maybe innitab?...
