Trouble changing resolution - Yosemite Hackintosh

Recommended Posts

I own a Surface Pro 2, 128 GB, 4 GB RAM.

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3317U CPU @ 1.70GHz 1.70GHz

Installed RAM 4.00 GB (gave the Virtual Yosemite >2 GB)

64-bit operating system x64-based processor

I can run Yosemite.Zone with minimal problems, the internet even works. But I am having difficulty changing the resolution from the default to my Surface Pro 2's 1920x1080 resolution. 

I accessed the 'Extra' folder on Yosemite, and changed the resolution in .org.chameleon.boot.plist. All I did was change the standard resolution to 1920x1080x32. Here is a screenshot of the chameleon file as is. (I also ran CMD as an administrator, allowing VirtualBox to handle this change. I can't remember the exact command I used, but it was one suggested by the internet).

When I boot Yosemite normally, it does not load. I have to boot with the command "-v" or "-v GraphicsEnabler=No", and when I do so, the resolution is default.

For what it's worth, here is my Yosemite Hackintosh specs. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.
