More EFI GOP video modes wanted

Description

An EFI GOP video mode like 1024x700 would be very nice for us with 13" macs as they have a resolution of 1280x800 and after removing menubar and such you can't use a guest with 1024x768 with getting scrollbars. Even better would be if it was settable like for custom VESA resolutions

Replying to baf:

you might try to switch EFI to 800x600 mode:

VBoxManage setextradata mac "VBoxInternal2/EfiGopMode" 1

please see  efividmode for details.

I use that mode now (800x600) but I would like to have it wider if that is possible.

This ticket #6783 was duplicated by #9116,

allow resolutions other than 1024 x 768 for Mac OS X Server guests

comment:5 Changed 3 years ago by grahamperrin

To reduce the likelihood of future duplication, please change the guest type of this ticket from other to OSX Server.

(OSX Server is one of the criterion that I used for my search before creating #9116.)

Thanks

Unfortunately this is not yet resolved. Is there any workaround for this? I have a MBP with 13" and using Linux host and installed OS X 10.9 has guest and can't change to a 'custom' resolution... :-S
