I'm installing OS X on my UMPC. I'm not doing it to actually use OS X, just get a feel for it for when my girlfriend needs some help (she prefers Windows or Linux). The issue is the screen is TINY. 1024x600 is the native resolution, but OS X automatically sets it to 1024x768. I know there is no driver for the Unichrome Pro, but is there any way I could change this? It makes it very frustrating to use as most windows go off the bottom of the screen. Any way to interpolate the resolution?

Press f8 at boot to get the prompt and type "Graphics Mode"="1280x1024x32", not sure it will work, not sure your display supports it, but it's the only resolution that could be used this way.

Actually, I figured it out. I edited my com.apple.boot.plist and added
<key>Graphics Mode</key>
<string>1024x600x32</string>
And now it works fine. Having some other issue, but those go in a different forum. ;-)
