What am I missing? I've got Elementary running in Hyper-V, but the only screen resolution available to me is 1152x864.


Of course I figure it out as soon as I post.

For the record, it was adding video=hyperv_fb:1680x1050 to the GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT line in /etc/default/grub, then update-grub and a reboot.

Doesn't let me change resolution as and when I want, but should be OK for now.

Find this: Hyper-V with Ubuntu

The script used in this thread is for GNOME. It's still unclear to me on how to modify this for pantheon, the window manager for Elementary OS.
