There is a VESA graphic driver for Windows. Unfortunatly, MS doesn't support this standard by default. Do a google, download and install it. I think it should work with the vgabios of QEmu. I use the high color/resolution VESA modes with GEOS and it works great.

*This message was transferred with a trial version of CommuniGate(tm) Pro* I have a fairly sofisticated qemu instalation, since I'm using it to "port" my personal Windows98 Machine to a new Suse 9.2 environment. The windows machine had four HDs, with several partitions each, so I need about 36 hours of continuous checking, disk cloning, qcow commits, geometry experiments, etc. to get qemu correctly launched. A nightmare, since for valid geometries, some partitions on virtual disks were ok and other were pure garbage. I had to split each disk (of four) in several virtual disks and burn some goats to gods, but it is working fine now.

But now I have another showstop: I only get qemu emulation in 640*480,
16 colors.

I select the Cirrus driver, as indicated in qemu FAQ, but Windows says that hardware is incorrectly configured and it keeps it in 640*480, 16
colors :-(.

I'm tired, working 18 hours today, fighting with this. Any help

QEMU is a wonderful piece of work, nevertheless. Simply stunning.

PS: My host is Suse 9.2, working in 1280*1024, 24 bits. I was hoping
Windows as 1024*768, 16 or 24 bits; I would be happy.
