    Hello,

    I'm using the current version of Parallels Workstation. My host is WinXP Pro SP2.
    The guest is Fedora Core 5.
    My laptop has a resolution of 1280*800 (widescreen). When I configure a VM to run
    Fedora Core 5 with that resolution and try to switch the guest to fullscreen mode I get a message
    box from parallels telling me that the host os doesn't support this resolution.
    But this resolution is supported and the host os is running with 1280*800.

    Any suggestions?

    Best regards,
    Jens

    How many colors configured in primary OS and in guest OS? This situation could happen if you have say in primary OS 1200x800x32bpp mode and in guest 1200x800x16bpp. In that case guest tries to set 1200x800x16bpp in primary OS, but this mode isn't configured/supported there.

    Try to check this idea.

    Both the same: true color

    No idea then. Try to contact Parallels support.
