Hmmm ....

Code:
Section "Device"
   Identifier  "Card0"
   Driver      "vesa" #card0driver
   VendorName  "VMware Inc"
   BoardName   "[VMware SVGA II] PCI Display Adapter"
   BusID       "PCI:0:15:0"
EndSection


Are you trying to do this in VMware player? ... If so, then I have no idea since I'm not keen on using them ...

Xvesa on real hardware does xrandr inverted the last time I check ... here.

I think it is only possible to rotate the display if both your video card and its driver supports rotation. Can your display rotate in Windows do you know?

I guess either the Vesa driver doesn't support rotation, or for some reason the Vesa driver can't tell that your video card does support rotation. Maybe you need to do some research elsewhere to see if it works in Linux for other people, and find out what driver they're using.
