I installed Windows 7 on my Macbook Pro with retina display. Is there any way of making a resolution smaller than 2880 x 1800 fill the whole screen? For any resolution I select, it is displayed at actual size, so letter boxing occurs, rather than being upscaled. I know I can change the DPI to make text and some things larger, but I would rather just have a scaled up version of another resolution. Is there any way to fix this?

I think your best bet is leaving the resolution at full and setting the DPI to something custom. According to this Wikipedia page, you'll want the DPI at 220 pixels per inch.
