Default VirtualBox 2.1 screen resolution problem

Hello.

I tried VirtualBox 2.1 in my host Debian Lenny AMD 64bits, all runs
really well, except screen resolution.
My host is 1680*1050 and my virtualbox max resolution in WindowsXP SP3
as guest is 1152*864

I tried:

VBoxManage controlvm "Machine1" setvideomodehint 1680 1050 32

But nothing change, I have installed guest additions.

How can I do for have WindowsXP at 1680*1050? Looking in monitor
properties and see a list of screen mode
supported the max screen resolution is 1152*864 at 32 bits (what is
used)



Any help will be appreciated.

Josep

It seems like you want to run VirtualBox in full-screen mode. Try
pressing Host+F (where "Host" is, by default, right-Control). To get
back out of full-screen, press Host+F again.

Did you install the guest-additions?

Default VirtualBox 2.1 screen resolution problem

Change the M$xp mode to 1152*864.
And select "auto fix" in VBox 'VIEW' menu

2009/1/13 Josep M. <websurfer@navegants.com>

Hello.



I tried VirtualBox 2.1 in my host Debian Lenny AMD 64bits, all runs

really well, except screen resolution.

My host is 1680*1050 and my virtualbox max resolution in WindowsXP SP3

as guest is 1152*864



I tried:



VBoxManage controlvm "Machine1" setvideomodehint 1680 1050 32



But nothing change, I have installed guest additions.



How can I do for have WindowsXP at 1680*1050? Looking in monitor

properties and see a list of screen mode

supported the max screen resolution is 1152*864 at 32 bits (what is

used)







Any help will be appreciated.
