Windows Whistler 5.1.2267.1 Display Driver

Hello,

I am attempting to run Windows Whistler 5.1.2267.1 on VMware Workstation Pro. Unfortunately, VMware Tools is not compatible with this build of Whistler. I decided to extract the VMware SVGA II driver from VMware Tools on Windows XP; however, this caused a blue screen upon installation on Windows Whistler. Ultimately, it did fix the color issue but I could not modify resolution settings without encountering another blue screen. Next, I decided to try one of the drivers from this source: http://www.navozhdeniye.narod.ru/vbemp.htm. Although this driver installed without error, it did not solve the resolution issue entirely. I was able to set the resolution to 1152 by 864 pixels but no higher. Ideally, I would like to be able to set the resolution to 1920 by 1080 pixels.

Thanks for reading!

most likely you need vmware 5.5 or 5.0 driver
those were made for 2k/xp

When I did it today, I downloaded the TCB Graphics Card drivers and installed it thru Device Manager automatically using the CD-ROM.

Thanks to everyone who responded. The drivers Gabe mentioned did the trick.
