Ubuntu Server 12.04.3 LTS in Hyper-V on Windows 8 getting low-graphics?


  • I’m having issues with my Ubuntu install. After restarting I get the error “system is running in low-graphics”. It won’t let me do much after that. I’m able to click the radio buttons and navigate through the menus but nothing actually opens. I can’t view the logs, open console, etc. Everything is just blank.

    How can I fix this?


  • The setting should be under the video\display settings on that virtual machine and should be a value you can increase. Sorry for not knowing exactly where, we are a VMware shop here, but there aren’t many differences between settings on a VM with the type 1 hypervisors.


  • I am new to Hyper-V. I don’t see any settings that allow me to do that. 😕

    Add more video resources from the host to the VM Client that’s running this. Maybe 128M?
