Cool !!!  Cool

The easiest way to get the VESA video mode numbers is the usage of Andre Fischer's boot manager. You can install it use StartMenu->Files->Partition Tool->Bluebottle->InstallBootManager on any disk that has an MBR. The boot manager provides an option to show the hardware capabilities of the system including the supported VESA mode numbers.

If the machine can boot from USB disks and you have a empty disk available, the fastest you can do is:
1. Partition disk (make MBR) using Partition Tool -> Partitions -> WriteMBR (if not already partitioned, all data will be lost!)
2. Install the boot manager as described above
3. Boot from USB disk (you don't need to install anything other than the boot manager)
