Guest Additions don't apply initial Host window size

Reported by: Malte S. Stretz Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 1.6.0

Guest type: other Host type: other

Description

There's a small glitch starting XP with Guest Additions on a Ubuntu 8.04 host: When I maximize the window while the Windows splash screen is still displayed (ie. the graphics driver not loaded), Windows won't recognize the screen size later on and just switch to whatever resolution was configured (800x600 in my case). I have to manually restore and re-maximize the window to get rid of the grey area around the window.

Maybe the Guest Additions/the driver should request the current screen size from the host after they got loaded or after the login or something like that.

Jepp, it is. No idea how to mark this a duplicate.

Probably bugtracker admins could do it :-)

This bug has been submitted multiple times, merging them all could be helpful to give it more priority :-)

This was not reproducible when I tested it on the most recent revision of VirtualBox. I will close it as obsolete.

Hm, tried it again and it doesn't seem to work after all.

Ah, this occurs if I maximise the window during boot on a fresh start, but not if the virtual system has just rebooted.

someone with enough rights may close this as dup of #5372...
