16:9 resolution

Post by ErMest »

Is there any way to set the ReactOS resolution to a resolution with a 16:9 aspect ratio? (1280x720, 1366x768, 1920x1080, etc.) on VirtualBox?
Installing Guest Additions for Server 2003 not only doesn't work, but also limits the resolution to 1024x768.

Try nightly build, there was a problem with VBoxTray.exe automatic execution on start.

Technically, you do not need guest additions, at all.

All you need is a line like this in your VM's *.vbox file:

Code: Select all

      <ExtraDataItem name="CustomVideoMode1" value="1920x1080x32"/>
The VESA BIOS provided by VirtualBox will then report that resolution as available and any generic VESA driver will support it.
