LXC Windows VM - Screen Resolution 1024x768

Hi, I am running LXC 4.18, with a Windows VM. I ma accessing this VM via a remote connection using:

lxc start myhost:winserver --console=vga

But the max resolution is only 1024x768. I have installed the drivers but am unable to set windows to use a higher resoltion. Is there anyway to increase it please?

Kind regards.

Hmm, I’m getting some higher resolutions here with the latest virtio drivers.
It actually tends to default to 1280x1024 here.

Did you use https://fedorapeople.org/groups/virt/virtio-win/direct-downloads/latest-virtio/virtio-win.iso ?

Thanks stgraber, I had installed the ‘stable’ drivers, once I installed the ‘latest’, then I had higher resolutions available. Thanks again.

Excellent and indeed it’s currently just in the latest driver, it showed up there a month or so ago.
