Win2003 guest cannot change video resolution with Guest Additions installed

Description (last modified by frank) (diff)

After installing the guest additions, the gui resolution and color depth cannot be changed beyond 640x480 4-bit.

Guest OS: Windows 2003 server, 32-bit, 2 processors Host OS: Windows 7 professional, 64 bit, Intel i7, 8GB RAM

I have reviewed other tickets. Changing the video memory to 64 MB did not help.

To workaround, I have uninstalled the guest additions.

This still occurs in version 4.0.2

Same issue with random XP guest systems. Sometimes just doing a reboot will fix the issue.
