Win2000 : problem with screen resolution

Postby CédricG » 13. Nov 2007, 16:49


I have just installed a Windows 2000 server Virtualbox.
Everything run fine (network, CD, ...) except the switch to higher resolutions.

When I change resolution using the screen property panel, the screen flicker and stay with 640x480 @256 colors with this message (in french, translation by me under).
La modification des paramètres d'affichage est impossible en utilisant le Panneau de configuration. Le pilote d'affichage graphique a renvoyé une erreur inattendue

Display parameters changes is impossible using the Configuration Panel. The display driver return an unexpected error

I have installed "client additions" (additionnals softwares installed in the guest OS, drivers), I have tried someting like this
vboxmanage controlvm "testw2kVM" setvideomodehint "800" "600" "24"

but nothing work.

Someone to help me?
Thanks in advance
