[Solved]Installer in virtualbox

Post by pfd27 » Sun Jan 06, 2019 11:48 am

I'm trying to install in virtualbox, but can't get past the location screen. The whole screen isn't visible so I normally experiment with tab to find the next option
but I can't make it work in Cindy. Is there a way to make the live version display bigger, so I can see the whole screen in the installer

I figured it out. Had to set the video scale mode to 125% and then back to 133 after I installed.

I don't see how that does anything. Switching to "scaled mode" doesn't make the installer window any smaller.

And the suggestion to use <ALT> to move the window doesn't work, because it just moves the entire VBox window on the host.
