Description

Hi

I've installed Oracle Enterprise Linux 5.2 64 bit (redhat) into VBox 2.1 on XP (32) After that I've install guest additions (64) After VM reboot VBox window start with smaller resolution when Linux login page. It shows only small empty part of the screen. Host+G disabled. Host+A work but do nothing (except if I make window bigger it reset by Host+A to initial size). Window resizing doesn't work - resolution of the virtual machine still small. But if I switch display (Ctrl+Alt+F1 then Ctrl+Alt+F7) or press X (close) button on Windows window - resolution of virtual machine display switch to normal.

P.S.

If I press X button on boot screen - VBox switch to normal screen and than generate GPF in Windows
