I'm unable to install elementary OS due to this resolution issue, does anyone know how I can fix it?

  • Does "Try elementary OS" work fine? Commented Dec 10, 2015 at 15:10
  • Not a good sign that no one has answered this. I'm having the same problem now trying to install elementary OS on a Lenovo Yoga Pro 2.

  • You can try to try XD Elementaryos from a live USB or CD and then install it from their. It works for my! I have a HDMI TV and old Acer desktop.

  • It looks like your install is not recognizing the correct display resolution for your computer. If you have the ability, I would say try to use a different display port (I.E. DVI-VGA or HDMI-DVI) while in a live environment to make sure that your monitor is sending the correct info to the computer. Let me know if you need more help. Commented Oct 10, 2016 at 21:37

You might want to start the elementary OS live mode from the installation medium so that you can check System Settings/Displays to fix this problem.

Even if you cannot fix the resolution you can move the installation window if you drag it with the windows key held down.
