Default Generate xorg.conf.new and black screen

Generate xorg.conf.new and black screen

The first time that i launch the command:
Xorg -configure
to generate xorg.conf I noticed that appear a black screen, then I reset the VM.
After i start startx without problems.

Is there a way that avoids me to reset the machine to get this file (xorg.conf.new)?

I have read the faq11 11.3.2 but if i choice CTRL-ALT-Backspace on GuestOS i reset the HostOS don't only the guestOS.

I have used qemu.

Under qemu, you do not require xorg.conf. If you use the default video "card" of the qemu virtual machine, you will get 800x600 video. If you use -std-vga, you will get 1600x1200 video.

I use the -std-vga because when i have tried with the other the X don't start.

Also 800 * 600 pixel would be a screen too small for me.
