VB 5.2 Version changing Resolution temporally when Guest is running

Postby joseluisbz » 24. Nov 2017, 20:15

Hi,

I was changing the resolution time before of my macOS guest was started.

Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
$ VBoxManage setextradata "MacOS 10.12 Sierra 64bits" VBoxInternal2/EfiGraphicsResolution 1920x1080


But I was thinking to connect to another Screen with before resolution HD, 1920 x 1080.

But when the TV or Screen is unplugged the Guest (macOS Sierra) is shown not properly.

I want change the resolution when my Guest is running temporally (not stop + change resolution + start).
When the my guest is restarted take the resolution stablished permanently.


For me the best options is:




Please tell me How to do that?

You can't do that. The resolution is set at the beginning, there is no dynamic screen resolution changes for OSX guests. For that you would need the Guest Additions for OSX guests, which do not exist.
If you obfuscate any information requested, I will obfuscate my response. These are virtual UUIDs, not real ones.
