Dual-output graphics options on AtomIQx2
On an AtomIQx2, the default graphics behaviour is to clone the desktop between the VGA and DVI ports. The DVI port has a maximum resolution of 1024x768, so while you stay in clone mode that will be your maximum resolution even with just a VGA monitor attached.
Our supported 64-bit AtomIQx1/x2 vDisk includes tools to automatically set the resolution and output type upon first login. The resolution and output type can be configured on a machine-by-machine basis using personality strings within Provisioning Services.

Automatically altering resolution and output type
A script called
intelres.vbs is installed in
C:\Windows. This is run automatically when a user logs on. Its default behaviour is to switch the display to single output (VGA only) with a resolution of 1024x768.
You can customise the outputs by setting the following Provisiong Services personality strings
displaymode= set to clone, single or extend. Defaults to single if not set
resolution= set to resolution with horizonal and vertical separated by 'x' with no spaces, e.g.
1280x1024. Defaults to 1024x768 if not set
displayverbose= set to y to have pop-up windows explaining what is going on (for debugging purposes)
