I googled for a solution because our scripted installations assumes we want 800x600, and I doubt anyone wants that anymore.

I came across the same link both in kace and here when I did a search. It leads me to http://www.kace.com/support/resources/kb/article/Post-Installation-to-Change-Screen-Resolution-on-the-K2000

This isn't working as a post installation script, and just running it pops up a quick box saying something about control-alt-shift R (which I assume is a resolution shortcut, though it doesn't work on my Win7 x86 PC).

I'm wondering if anyone knows what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks!

Answer Summary:
I contacted the author and he was able to recreate the problem and updated the download on the above link. All is well now. :)

I'm not familiar with that post install task, but you could add this to your answer file.

<Display>
    <HorizontalResolution>1024</HorizontalResolution>
    <VerticalResolution>768</VerticalResolution>
  </Display>

  • This does not work in situations when the video driver is not yet installed, it is simply ignored. On older systems it may work, when the driver is part of the media. May also work well with the driver feed workaround, but there are a number of situations where I have had to use this, hence why I made it available.

In the instructions it mentions the installation of video drivers may change the resolution, so I'm not sure if your suggestion would work...even if I understood the answer enough to add those lines somewhere in the answer file. LOL
