Windows IoT Core, Raspberry PI 2 and HDMI to VGA Converter

Last week I installed the Windows IoT Core Technical Preview on my Raspberry PI 2 but I had some issues with my cheaper HDMI to VGA converter. During the test, I used my old Samsung CRT monitor without any output from the board! I tried using a HDMI cable with other monitor and the board work fine. Then I connected the converter to my laptop HDMI port and it worked. The problem was on the board OS Image. After a few hours, I found the solution. On the OS Image root path there is the config.txt file. On this file I appended the following lines:

hdmi_drive=2
hdmi_group=2
hdmi_mode=16
hdmi_force_hotplug=1

Here there is a brief description about the parameters available for the config.txt
