video=hyperv_fb setting for guest hyperv resolution

Post by mtnblue97 » Sat Jun 06, 2015 1:43 am

For rpm, deb, and arch linux, if one includes video=hyperv_fb:hhhhxvvvv (where hhhh is horizontal pixels, vvvv is vertical pixels),
then when booting, the hyperv window resizes itself to hhhh x vvvv.

This setting is entered on the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX line in grub.cfg.

It is very useful, because one does not have to resort to vnc or rdp to get similar results.

However, I have been unsuccessful determining how, where to set this in FreeBSD, GhostBSD, or PC-BSD.

Can anyone point to a solution?
