Just type in command prompt (Windows or Linux):

VBoxManage setextradata “VM name” VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode N

Where N can be one of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 referring to the 640×480, 800×600, 1024×768, 1280×1024, 1440×900, 1920×1200 screen resolution respectively.

There is already a black pointer in the top right corner of the screen when I start up the macOS, even without me pressing anything. Whenever I click the virtual screen with my actual mouse to start the setup it gets captured, but the black pointer doesn’t move.
