I just installed a fresh VM using the 2016.1 ISO on my ESXi 6.0 server.
I've installed open-vm-tools, but any time I try to change my resolution to anything in a 4:3 ratio it stalls for a minute then drops back to 800x600. If I try to change to any other ratios I lose my video and have to reset the VM. I'm seeing similar posts for others for VirtualBox, I've come up with nothing for ESXi.

I have a Kali 2.0 box that's running on the same server at 1360x768, with no issues.

Any help would be appreciated.
