I have successfully installed Kali Linux on Hyper-V. The problem is that the OS doesn't take the whole screen. It takes only part of it. How to make Kali Linux run on full screen (physical)?

In /etc/default/grub change GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet” to GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:your_resolution″ for me it was GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT=”quiet splash video=hyperv_fb:1920×1080″. Save file then run sudo update-grub and restart.


If this doesn't work on Hyper-v (You will see this message briefly on during boot process "hyperv_fb screen option is invalid"

Run the following command in Powershell as administrator on Windows host:

*set-vmvideo -vmname <NameOfVM> -horizontalresolution:2560  -verticalresolution:1440 -resolutiontype single*
