    Since upgrading to Parallels 15 on a 2018 Mac mini I can no longer use FreeBSD 12.1 with X-Window in full screen but am restricted to 1400x1050 despite previously having 1920x1200. FreeBSD was installed as a BIOS and not an EFI installation. The issue seems to be with the Parallels VESA BIOS.
    The Xorg.log shows:

    The correct VESA modes are identified, but later ignored as "no mode of this name" despite clearly being available.

    Any ideas?

    The solution was to suck the Parallels VM into VMware Fusion, install the VMware X11 driver from the FreeBSD ports, add ethernet0.virtualDev = "e1000" to the VMX file for network, and now I again have my full screen resolution back. Pity Parallels 15 and 16 cannot do it.
