Question VirtualBox display bit rate Query?


I have recently installed Microsoft Vista Ultimate 64 bit in my VirtualBox 4.3.0 r89960 with the correct Extentions, and although it works I cannot get the settings right. When I start Vista I get a message on screen that says, " The virtual machine is optimised to work with 32 bit color mode but the virtual display is currently set to 24 bit."
I'm totally baffled by this as I cannot find in the VirtualBox settings anything that suggests a bit rate. How do I alter the virtual display to 32 bit?

Thanks,

gael.

My way of dealing with that message has been to ignore it.

This bit from the PCLinuxOS forums addresses the question. See posts #5 and #10.
