How can I stretch the size of the Windows XP display (running within Server 2008's Hyper V) to be the full size as the display that I have within Server 2008?

How can I stretch the size of the Windows XP display (running within Server 2008's Hyper V) to be the full size as the display that I have within Server 2008?

In Server 2008, I have my screen resolution set at the maximum size of 1920x1020.

However, within Windows XP (running within Server 2008's Hyper V, the maximum display size that I can get is 1280x1024. Even when I select the View Full Screen option, I still don't get a full screen display within the Windows XP guest operating system.

What can I do so that I can get a full screen size resolution of 1920x1080 within my Windows XP Hyper V virtual operating system?

check the screen shot attached to check whether you have IS installed or not. (There are other ways too).

If you don't have IS installed follow this

Hate to inform you that if even with IS you wont get past 1600x1200 using hyper-V manager. It the maximum VM resolution when accessed using Hyper-V native tools.

If you want to go past that you only option is RDP.
