[Mac OSx86] How To Change Resolution (VMware)


How to increase the resolution of OSx86 in VMware without VMware Tools


There are 2 ways you can do this.

Method 1: Temporary

When OSX is booting, tap F8 to get to the boot prompt
Type in "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32" (with quotations, replacing the resolution with the resolution you want)

Method 2: Permanent

Boot OS X
Open the TextEdit program in the Applications folder
With TextEdit, open the file: /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/
Open the file, and add these two lines (right after the Yes line if you are on Tiger or line if you are on Leopard)

Graphics Mode

Replace the 1280x1024x32 with the resolution you want
Then, in go to File >> Save As..
Save the file as on the Desktop (make sure the .plist part is there!)
Navigate the the /Library/Preferences/SystemConfiguration/ folder
Drag your file on the Desktop into the folder window
When a messages appears, click Authenticate and Replace and enter your password
You're done! Reboot OS X to see the changes

Here is an example of what the com.Apple.boot.plist file looks like with Leopard:
