That means the X server has started correctly, as the very small black and white squares are the default background. Because you are running X in the configuration mode, this is why it uses the default. Another sign that this was successful is that the mouse works.

Alt - F1 usually gets you to the first console, Alt -F2 to the second, and Alt -F7 usually is the X server output. You might need Shift- Alt-F1 or Fn-Shift-Alt-F1 or something like this.
