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...): _http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyper-V#Graphics_issues_on_the_host
In Windows Server 2008, Microsoft officially supported Hyper-V only with the default VGA drivers, 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.
