I have vbox running on a Gigabyte GA-H61M-2PV, with Intel G620 @ 2.6G, 8G of DDR3 and a Radeon HD 5450.
Vbox only sees 4G for some reason I don't understand - Pclos sees it all.
The guest is win7, all the guest additions are installed.
The virtual disk is set as dynamic, 100G, the memory 1.9G, and the video memory at 256M (the max allowed). One processor core is selected.
The win7 control panel reports that a generic "Virtual Box Graphics Adapter" is running.
I am having trouble getting the win7 video to run at a reasonable speed - even solitaire tells me "h/w acceleration is disabled or not available" or something like that.
The host pclos is running at 1920x1080 very satisfactorily, and correctly sees the HP 2309v monitor.
The best res I can see is 1600x1091, but regardless which res I select, I cannot get it up to speed.
win7 cannot recognise the monitor - it says 'generic 1024x768'.
What on earth have I missed? I've tried fiddling with all sorts, but as yet failed to get the right mix!
