I've run into an issue that has a workaround, but I wonder if there is a good solution.
When installing RH7, on a 5.5.0 VM, during the manual partitioning GUI installer screen you cannot see the entire screen and cannot proceed. You cannot see the buttons you need to select. On a windows VM, you have scrollbars on the VMware console. In this instance there are no scrollbars, so you are DOA.
This is also noted here; on the RH bugzilla Bug 1220563 – Manual partitioning GUI in installer doesn't fit in VMware console
How do you force scrollbars to show up during this screen, or otherwise proceed?
I know I can use text mode installs; but I really think this is something that VMware would want to solve.
Have you tried the following? :
".. I've edited the kernel boot options to change the framebuffer resolution using "vga=773". Note that the partitioning window is not offset and that all of the elements are accessible."
