Updating CentOS Guest Screen Size with HyperV host

I've sucessfully installed a CentOS 6.3 guest in a Win8 Pro HyperV host, and even managed to get the network working.

However, I don't seem to be able to get the screen to go beyond 1152x864.

I don't appear to have system-config-display on the guest, even though I do have the "Display" properties app, and I've tried using the same xorg.conf that works with a KVM host, but it just crashes X on the guest when run in a HyperV host.

Any ideas? I really want to be running at 1920x1080 to make the guest properly useful.

Maybe a OS limitation?

I found this (its not Win8 but...): _

In Windows Server 2008, Microsoft officially supported Hyper-V only with the default VGA drivers,[37] which do not support Windows Aero, higher resolutions, rotation, or multi-monitor display.

I saw some other stuff on google about the max resoution being 1600x1200, might try that. Nothing definitive though.
