Running VESA driver at 4K resolution

Hello

I have a questions for the gurus. I have tried running AROS at 3840x2160 pixel resolution on a 4K-capable display, but without luck. I could only try in a VMware virtual machine and I suspect that VMware itself is limiting its VESA modes to 2560x1600 pixels.

So the question is: are 2560x1600 pixel either a VMware, or an AROS Vesa driver's limitation?

Thank you so much for your help. Unluckily, running native wasn't possible.

I presume you gave the VM lots of graphics memory. Did you try vbeinfo in the GRUB shell?

Hi, I tried to do my best for the VM, but I didn't think about vbeinfo. It's a pity I have already given the notebook back to its vendor...
