MacOS 10.7 to 10.8 display issues, VM Wkstn 9

I installed 10.7 LION on my VMware workstation tonight. Ran vmware tools, all great.


Copied the VM, installed 10.8, installs fine.


But when the login window appears, it stays at the correct resolution (display all correct) for 30 seconds or so then it looks like the display hoz sync fails and the screen becomes illegible. System still function AFAIK but I can't read it. I've tried with/without 3d accel and default and manual setting of display.


It looks like there's a known problem in VM fusion that will (one day) fix the issue, but I can't see them fixing it in Workstation.


Any clues where to look or resolve the issue?

Issue resolved....


Step 1) reset VM to display as 1024x780.

2) Restart VM

3) Go to http://www.mediafire.com/zackehsoul and download svga2_v1.2.4_OS_10.6-6.pkg and install it

4) restart OS

5) shutdown, in VM set display to 1920x1080

6) restart

7) Use display prefs to get back to 1920 x 1080


ALl seems fine now.


Thx to Zackensoul for his hard work creating the environment.
