Hyper-V meet RHEL8 – screen resolution

I’m running Hyper-V on my laptop and I’m also doing work with RHEL 8 desktops. Alas, the default screen resolution you get is the rather odd 1152×864.

In order to make this more reasonable, such as the 1920×1080 full screen resolution on my laptop you have to set the hyper-v framebuffer at boot time.

sudo grubby --update-kernel=ALL --args="video=hyperv_fb:1920x1080"

You’ll likely need to do this after each kernel update.

May the full screen be with you.
