So I'm trying to configure the resolution of my CentOS 6.5 virtualbox. Here are the steps I have taken:
Installed guest additions
Changed virtualbox preferences > Display > Maximum Guest Screen Size: Hint (Width 1920, height 1080)
Restarted VirtualBox System > Preferences > Display only shows 1024x768 and lower as possible resolutions.
I had also tried editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf to include the following:
However changing this caused box to crash to a black window with "CentOS 6.5" printed. It would let me type but would not let me run commands; hitting enter returned a newline but no actions. There was no prompt.
I've also seen instructions to run a command changing the MaxGuestOSResolution (or something) in my host terminal, but I'm hosting on windows so that isn't an option.
Is there something I'm overlooking? I've done a lot of google searching but nothing has given me the option to increase the resolution. I've also taken a couple steps that I didn't list here, but I can't remember them all.
Thanks in advance.
