    is there any way to get a better screen resolution
    in Debian guest systems on Hyper-V?

    i get the modules working ripped from Redheat
    lsmod
    hv_vmbus 81920 6 hv_balloon,hyperv_keyboard,hv_netvsc,hid_hyperv,hv_utils,hv_storvsc

    but the graphics card stuck on 1152x864

    i try to activate the remotefx-3d but still no change ....

    is there any hint ?

    the second issue clipboard copy paste result is crap on terminal
    is there a switch to set ?

    thanx

    login as superuser or root and edit

    /etc/default/grub

    set the grub cmdline to your preferred resolution like that, for example:

    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:1600x900"

    run

    update-grub

    and reboot to work with the higher resolution.

    The issue is "native" vs. VESA; while every OS supports VESA, native is still preferred.
