Fixing Video Display Issues with VMWare Fusion and Windows 10 – Sup-a-Dillie-O
All my monitors, resolution and dynamic sizing so you may want to give it another go…. Thanks for this! Is this with a tech preview or with the newly released Win10? I wonder if something was updated. The same for me. How do I fix this please? I just upgraded my mac to OSMajove. Hmm, did you lose the ISO? Is it in a different place perchance? You should be able to modify the disc settings to not mount that ISO anymore and avoid the issue.

Now, I have a touch of Mac for the first time, so I do not need to buy anoda. Thumbs Up!!! Still no solution for increasing the resolution with VirtualBox, but there was a VB update today, to 3.
