I'm running Linux Mint Qiana as the host on a new HP 250 G laptop with 4GB of Ram and a 500GB hard drive. The laptop has a screen aspect ratio of 16:9. This is new to me because it's my first laptop and all my desktops have 4:3 screens.
I've set up a Virtual Machine using VirtualBox and installed Windows XP Service Pack 3 as the guest operating system in the virtual machine. The problem is I can't get the XP window to fit nicely on the screen because XP thinks I'm using a 4:3 display. Windows apparently does not know about the existing monitor because it's set up for Default Monitor.
As XP was released about twelve years before my HP Laptop came into existence, this is not surprising. Are there any Windows geeks out there who could give me a fix, or can it be done using VirtualBox?
