I've created Windows 7 virtual machine on Windows 8 Hyper-V, but can find how to set resolution to anything widescreen (my monitor supports 1920x1200) to be able work fullscreen. Is it possible to get any widescreen resolution on Hyper-V virtual machine?
For the moment, the answer seems to be a resounding "you can't do that."
The Hyper-V virtual video card is an 8MB card that only supports the 4:3 resolutions you see in the video control panel.
These are the options I've looked at:
- Remote Desktop: This is the only choice if you want to stick with Hyper-V
- VMWare Player or Workstation: VMWare Workstation isn't free, but it offers very good display support, including 3D acceleration. It also dynamically resizes the display resolution based on your window size. (Drag the window and the resolution changes automatically to fit the window.)
- Virtualbox: free and open source
In the end, I chose to simply RDP in to my virtual machine. It's the simplest method that fits my needs.
